Official Fiesta Huarache Review

What welcomes warmer weather better than a great pair of huaraches? They are part of the heart and soul of Mexico as well as America, included in such notable places as the lyrics to The Beach Boys song, “Surfin’ USA,” Jack Kerouac’s novel, “On The Road,” and Kathryn Stockett’s novel, “The Help.” I have found some huaraches you should know about.

Official Fiesta is the place to go for comfortable, stylish and authentic huarache sandals made in Mexico. We all like to treat ourselves to the best when we can. We like to treat our feet to the best too. So, let’s take a closer look at one standout item, Torero Men’s Grueso Huaraches. It has that cool iconic look we all know. And it fits like a dream. You can’t go wrong: It’s affordable, it’s hip and it fits right out of the box.

I decided to give the Grueso Huaraches a test, really walk around in them and make them my new friends. Right from the start, you don’t notice them once they’re on your feet since they’re light without complication, just like a good friend should be. You also want to be able to savor them and that’s where the leather weave and leather footbed will have you covered in comfort.

As a Mexican-American, I am particularly pleased to wear huaraches. It’s one of those things that you sort of take for granted, that you’ll get around to, but I’ve been missing out on a pair for many years! And, they look so cool. They are not as common as flip flops so people will compliment you and ask where you got them. Yeah, a lot of people out there are like me, they’ve been meaning to get huaraches! That’s the thing, you just need to get a pair–or two!

Here is a quick comparison to another pair of huraches also available at Official Fiesta. This other pair is the Torero Men’s Huaraches Pachuco. It’s a different style but it provides similar comfort. And it also has that same cool attitude. If you’re interested in getting more than one pair of huaraches, you may want to consider getting both of these styles. You definitely need to get some huaraches and Official Fiesta is where to go.
