Thank you!! Your words are very kind. I loved reading and learning about the Tarahumara/Raramuri. It was lots of fun to try to emulate their sandal design and make my own. Also a lot harder than I initially thought it would be. It's super cool to know that someone that grew up among the Tarahumara saw my instructable. Thank you so much for sharing!
Egg Dough & Kneading Basics
Great lesson! Unfortunately I failed to heed the sage advice of not making the walls of your flour circle to thin and ended up with an egg mixture rebellion on my hands. Luckily I was able to subdue the unruly substance with extra reinforcements of flour. After getting everything under control I realized that I had to add some more water to counteract all the added flour. Anyways, now it's in the fridge where it should stay quiet until I get to it tomorrow.

Diesel, not gas. Got it.
Interesting! I've heard that dipping the blade in water makes it cut smoother, but I wouldn't have thought to use gasoline. I imagine it gets the tire a bit greasy/smelly though...

Good point! There seem to be two different types of footwear that people recognize as "huaraches". The one that most people are familiar with looks like this, while the other type, (worn by the Tarahumara/Raramuri tribes in Mexico) looks like this. Good thing to point out though!
Thanks! I'm not sure I quite understand you're question though... What color are you wondering about?

Sweet! Thank you!
Thank you! It does take a bit of getting used too, but I think that they're pretty comfortable. You'll feel the knot on the bottom most when they're just made, but after some walking around it gets pretty flat and you don't notice it as much. Unless it's been super tight, the rope hasn't given me any trouble. The skin in between your toes might get a bit tougher, but that's about it. This was the first time I experimented with adding leather to the top, and that makes quite a bit of difference. It definitely feels better then having nothing between your foot and the rubber.
Thanks, I'm glad you like them! In response to your question, yes. A utility knife was the only thing used. I did change out the blade partway through, (I started off with a dull one) and it was a lot easier after that. On one of my previous attempts I tried using a different knife, but the space that the knife needs to fit into is really small, and the one that I was using couldn't get far enough to touch the uncut rubber before it would get stuck, (the blade was too thick). Hope that answers your question!
