The upcoming Air Huarache retros are the latest example where purist sneakerheads are happier with the classic form than recent Free-soled remixes, but if you’ve been following Sneaker News this year, you realize that Nike Sportswear’s barefoot-mimicking lifestyle efforts are indisputably crushing it from the other end of the timeline. From the all-new Inneva Woven to fresh Free Runs 2 and 3 at the same time and the Footscape Motion Chukkas, NSW’s grasp on stylish and functional footwear is further affirmed with the all new Nike Free Forward Moc+. Our first exposure comes from a couple of N7 colorways, which has traditionally meant an emphasis on red and turquoise accents on a variety of typically earthy base shades. That’s true of one, a Filbert and black suede style that’s the collection’s best exemplar, and whose rear hints at what’s going on with the other style that’s been blacked out with the exception of soft blue contrast stitching. This dope design’s elastic lacing system runs from the moccasin toe all the way through the top of the tongue to ensure optimal fit with easy on and off, and both will arrive at select retailers next Saturday, October 27th.
