No prizes for guessing the provenance of this pair of love-child Nikers! Like a genetic experiment gone oh-so right, this fusion vision of the Huarache runner and b-baller is yet another sign that ‘the 90s’ are looming as the next great fountain of retro-inspiration. Hybrids are generally a hit-and-miss affair, but both of these units stay more or less true to the dimensions of the original, with of course, the addition of the modernist Free’s ‘biomechanic articulation’ sole unit. Lighter, brighter, more comfortable and built for speed. What’s not to like?
