The Making Of The Nike Air Flight Huarache
Part of a series celebrating twenty years of board-breaking basketball designs, Nike have dug the Air Flight Huarache out of the vault, releasing a series of rare concept sketches that shed light on the development of this wetsuit wonder. Back in 1992 the Air Flight Huarache was the lightest basketball boot Nike had ever made... nothing even came close to resembling its skeletal, inside-out aesthetic. Led by Tinker Hatfield and Eric Avar, a crack A-Team of designers took up the daunting task of translating the radical sock-like running shoe into a durable court dynamo. As is so often the case, Nike is at it's best when its scratching at the future. The Air Flight Huarache was no exception. Recently reborn with a Free sole, its a progressive silhouette still looks as fresh and functional as ever. Learn more about the making of the Nike Air Flight Huarache at Nikeinc.com.
