After its impressive stint dominating wishlists and wardrobes, Nike's Air Huarache went a little quiet. But it’s edged back onto radars, first with a couple of suave Premium make-ups, and now with a new-look zip closure.
We’ll admit, the zip confused us at first, but we’ve since learned its story. Inspired by everyone’s go-to winter garment – the puffer jacket – the latest Huarache’s tongue-length zip is complemented by puffer-jacket like quilting on the toe box.
If you found the first release’s all-out assault of orange straight-up unwearable, let all-black win you over. Built for New York City and its puffer-jacketed denizens, the blacked-out shoe features additional padding and ‘NYC’ across the back heel tab where ‘Nike’ usually sits.
While the look of a zipped-up Huarache will take some getting used to, there’s no denying the newcomer carries a premium vibe.
Nike's Air Huarache Run 'NYC' drops November 22 at Nike.
