To be completely honest I think I prefer how VFFs look, but that's just me. "4mm Cherry Vibram sole" sounds really good though, for some reason (I'm not sure why...)
I think what I dig about huaraches is that they are so basic. To me there is a beauty in the simplicity of their design -- even remote indigenous peoples can construct them from old tires and a bit of leather. They also look like throwbacks to ancient times.
Not quite as high tech as VFFs though. FWIW I like the aesthetics of VFFs better, too. But we're really talking about apples and oranges!
