A Huarache is a traditional handmade Mexican sandals with woven leather top. Well, Sigerson Morrison expanded that idea and slapped on some 4" heels. The result? An astounding pair of boots ready to kick Sin City ass. These Huarache boots are more glamorous and sophisticated than the tall gladiator sandal-boots from last year. The placement of the straps is very well-done, and makes me sit up and notice Sigerson Morrison for the first time. Sure, it's not for everyday wear~. Now is it in everyone's price range. But these boots have a lot of punch despite its humble Huarache name, and thus, deserve the attention they get. On a side note, Sigerson Morrison has an ankle version of this Huarache Boots, and Heels.com has a comparable ankle boots from Steve by Steve Madden.
