The Nike Air Huarache ‘Deep Magenta’ AKA ‘Aquatone’: 1992 OG vs 2021 Retro

Nike Air Huarache Deep Magenta Aquatone 1992 2021

The 30th anniversary of the Nike Air Huarache continues a strong run of the Swoosh restoring their 1990s classics, with more attention to detail than ever before. After the ‘Scream Green’ reissue impressed Hua heads new and old, all eyes were on which colourways would emerge next. It only took 29 years, but the ‘Deep Magenta’ (aka ‘Aquatone’) has now returned for the first time since 1992. And it’s a very solid retro.

The Nike Air Huarache ‘Deep Magenta’ retro is available now from Up There, who kindly sourced an OG pair to shoot against the 2021 version for this comparison. Thanks crew!

Hasty Huarache History

The ‘Deep Magenta’ colourway was introduced in 1992, appearing in Nike’s Fall catalogue of that year. As mentioned, this is the first time the Tinker Hatfield OG has been retroed. While originally launched as a women’s colourway, this retro has been recreated in unisex sizing, starting at men’s 5/women’s 6.5 and running all the way up to men’s 14/women’s 15.5.
