At the start of 2017, Nike introduced a shoe so nice they named it twice — the Huarache Huarache Ultra. The sneaker took the Huarache, whittled its uppers down to a sandal and created a beach-going silhouette to oppose the Birkenstock brigade. Anyone wondering why it’s got two names need only look up the definition of ‘huarache’ and find that it’s a ‘leather-thonged sandal’ — meaning that this Huarache is a huarache. Wild.
The model has been dormant for a while, but new images from US11 show that the three new colourways are en route. Preview them here and stay tuned for release info.
