The Nike Air Huarache Gets a Suede MakeoverRelease: TBC
Celebrations continue to kick on for the Nike Air Huarache’s 30th birthday, with this suede-infused rendition the latest to join the party. Starting with a grey and black base, the scheme uses blue branding pops on the tongue and outsole to add a little colour to the occasion.
Ageing very gracefully, the Huarache has been stunting in a whole bunch of coveted colourways this year, with a quality mix of retro favourites and some new looks. Highlights include the elusive ‘Escape’, loud ‘Scream Green’, magnificent ‘Magenta’, legendary ‘Triple Black’, and eye-catching ‘Aquatone’.
A solid case study for Tinker Hatfield’s ‘less is more’ design language, the concept for the Air Huarache was conceived when the well-known Nike designer became transfixed by the neoprene booties found in water skiing boots. That techno-minimalism is on full display on the Huarache, with nylon toe boxes, rubber heel cages, and leather overlays. Down below, cushy EVA foam midsoles with Air technology guarantee a super smooth ride.
Pairs of this suede-adorned Huarache are expected to land soon at Nike and selected Swoosh stockists.
