Curling in Huaraches

Pika's person thinks people could curl wearing huaraches on the Zocalo Piste. Been there, done that says a Canadian who curled in sandals last Summer at the Vacaville bonspiel. Here's a photo of him with some of the other curlers during the opening ceremony for that spiel. His shoes were off the shelf but for one toe covered in duct tape where the toes slide along the ice. Outside the weather was over 100 Fahrenheit. Shorts, sandals and even kilts were all popular that weekend.
Several curlers wore kilts. That's a popular thing for some guys in Canada during spiels. And many had uniforms like the USA men's team who've curled around the world.... but not in Mexico..... yet.
