We, of course, believe that with a bit more time in his huaraches, he’ll like them even more than he already does ;-)

Thanks, Jason!

Does knowing how to make huaraches running sandals give you super powers?

Posted by | Posted in Huaraches, Running Sandals | Posted on 07-04-2010

Having now made hundreds of pairs of huarache barefoot running sandals, and having spoken with many others who’ve done the same, I’m here to report a startling fact.

Knowing how to make your own shoes — even making minimalist running shoes like Tarahumara-style huaraches — definitely gives you super powers.

Oh, I don’t mean the ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound (or even two or three bounds), or the power to fly, or the fun of invisibility… instead, I’m talking about something much super-er:

The knowledge that you can make your own shoes!

If you haven’t yet made your own running sandals, you probably don’t know what I mean. You probably don’t get why I would say that being able to make some running sandals is a super power.

But, I assure you, that’s only because you haven’t done it yet.

After I made my first pair of huaraches, and was walking around in shoes that I MADE with my own 2 hands, I was overcome by a profound sense of self-reliance, a comforting knowledge, a feeling of value… just knowing that, if things get bad, I can make shoes for myself and others.

And in a way that I can’t explain, that knowledge felt like having a super power.

I don’t have to explain it to other people who’ve made their own barefoot running shoes; they’ve told me they have had a similar experience.

It’s like growing your own food… there’s something really comforting about knowing you can take care of one of your basic needs.

So, if you haven’t yet, I highly encourage you to see what I mean and develop the super power of making your own huaraches running sandals. And, honestly, I’m not just saying that because I’m in the biz… it’s such a fun feeling, I want you to have it yourself. (But, hey, if you just want me to increase my super powers and order custom-made huaraches, that’s okay with me ;-) )

Anyone else want to chime in about what it was like when you developed your super power?
