    I have ranted a quite a bit about how huaraches are too slow and inconvenient to adjust.. So, here's a very simple way to make easily adjustable huarache lacing.

    Just make a knot on sides of ankle where cord goes through sole so it doesn't slide and add cordlock to every section. With this system every section can be separately adjusted and it doesn't affect other sections..

    Interesting idea flammee, but will all those cordlocks cause blistering or other problems? I do like the general concept of your idea though.

    Dunno, I ran out of cordlocks for another huarache.. :( But in theory they shouldn't cause problems because there's lace between skin and cordlock.

    I also thought about using cord locks for my walking sandals. I've changed the strapping and cords several times over the years to adjust to my changing feet. It seems that thick cord works best for me, particularly when I twist the cord together to reduce chafing. uploadfromtaptalk1391390460787.jpg For me, the best location for the cord lock seems to be on the back, then I tied the loose ends together. It doesn't look as bulky when I'm wearing them.
