A beautiful short documentary about Nicolás Lizares, a huarachero (huarache maker) from Jalisco, Mexico. My mom happens to be in Jalisco right now, staying in Guadalajara, the state’s capital, and she’s bringing back some huaraches for me to wear this summer. Hopefully I can offer a full report at some point.

The video comes via the wonderful site Huarache Blog, which has further information about Sr. Lizares and his shoes here.
