I took my 1/8" leather Huaraches on a rugged hike last week. In the mountains it was very rocky and rough. On the dirt parts they worked great, but on the rocky areas I couldn't hang. I use my leather and rubber Huaraches for the dirt, grass and sidewalks but on the rocky stuff there just isn't enough under the foot to not hurt your feet. Luckily I brought my hiking shoes to the test.
