I purchased a pair of these at Artists & Fleas in LA. I was a little skeptical at first since the fit felt VERY tight and uncomfortable. But after a few wears these Huaraches were AMAZING. I wore them everywhere I could, and they eventually felt like leather socks. They are literally the most comfortable leather product I have ever worn on my feet. They lasted about 2 years through frequent and rough wear and tear, and I just ordered another pair.
I wore these with jeans, with shorts, and even wore them out in the summer with slacks and a blazer. For whatever reason, I get more compliments on these shoes than I do on my wingtips, monkstraps, or other cool/expensive shoes I own. People always want to know where I got them, and I send them right to the Espiritu website.
I recommend going true to size - understand they 100% WILL FEEL TIGHT at the start. Also know they 100% will loosen up and become irreplaceable. I could not give a higher recommendation, not to mention the cool people who make the shoes and run the company.
