|Real Tarahumara Indians|
Well, practically... ok, not quite. He's not Mexican, he doesn't live in a canyon or have to run around the wilderness for days looking for food. But he does wear huaraches - they're the real handmade McCoy and he's a runner. That's about as close to Tarahumara as a South African can get.
Andrew Scott, better known as Drew, is a sworn huarache convert. Not only does he make his own Tarahumara-style thonged sandals, but he's tossed all his other shoes. And I mean ALL - he has a pair of huaraches for work, a pair for running, and a "smart leather pair for going out". That's it.

|It's all about the thong... and the rubber.|
"If you love something enough, it becomes a lifestyle," says Drew.
(Personally I'll stick with my trusty Salomons, but hey, whatever blows your wild hair back!)
