IX Style’s huarache sandals

Guatemalan-inspired footwear with a philanthropic sole

“I decided to start IX Style a couple of years ago, after I visited Guatemala’s Lake Atitlan. The lake was covered with algae, and I saw little girls who had no choice but to collect the contaminated water. I love the huarache sandals from the nearby Panajachel market and decided to create a more contemporary version, providing jobs for local craftsmen and raising funds to provide clean drinking water. We have raised over $5,000 for Charity: Water so far.”
