The Air Huarache might just be Nike’s favourite sneaker to retool with weight-saving treatments. They've made a regular Ultra, a pared back Ultra Run, and at least three other Premium or SI iterations – but this Huarache Huarache Ultra takes it to the next level. Nike have put the Hua under the knife, much like they did recently with the Air Max 90. They’ve chopped away at the cherished runner until all that remains are its key design elements – crafting a sporty new sandal in the process.
Four colourways are available – tan, black, pink and cream. It’s a profoundly different direction for the Hua but if we had to wear sandals over sneakers, these are what we’d be slipping on.
The Nike Air Huarache Huarache Ultra pack will be available on May 3 from Nike online.
