How I Tie My Invisible Shoe Huaraches

There's lots of ways to tie huaraches.  I like to tie mine in the more traditional "toga" style, slightly adapted from Steven Sashen's instructions on the Invisible Shoes website.

Start with the basic lacing pattern.

Bring the lace around to the outside of your ankle, above the ankle bone itself, bring the lace
around to the front, then make one more pass around your leg.

Pass the lace under the toe strap.  Pull it snug so the toe strap moves more parallel with your foot.

Bring the lace back up and around the ankle in the opposite direction you were going before. You may require assistance from your cat.

Make a small loop under the doubled top of foot strap.

Make another loop with the loose end of the lace, and pass it through the first loop.  Tighten the hitch by holding the doubled top strap on either side, and pulling the second loop.


It's as simple as that!  There are lots of ways to tie huaraches, play around and come up with what works for you.
