Nike Are Bringing Back the Air Flight Huarache in 2023
A 1990s basketball classic is returning next year in the form of the Nike Air Flight Huarache. According to internal documents viewed by ,Complex, the original colourway of the memorable sneaker is slated for a retro run in 2023.
The Air Flight Huarache originally released in 1992 and adapted Tinker Hatfield’s Huarache technology (debuted on the eponymous running shoe from the year prior) into a basketball shoe, with a little help from Eric Avar. Its foot-hugging structure and lightweight build delivered a swift sneaker for the Michigan Wolverines ‘Fab Five’ team and added a formidable entry into Nike’s Flight series.
According to the document, the White/Varsity Purple-Royal Blue-Menta description is a pretty solid indication that the original colourway (pictured above is the 1992 edition) is getting retroed. There are currently no other references to additional makeups on the way, but it’s likely there will be more to come.
Stay tuned for more on this exciting reissue.
