The size? x Nike Air Huarache Light arrives on October 31st, 2014. Needless to say the Huarache line is back, but overseas, this hasn’t been news as they’ve been holding down the name for quite some time. size? continues to work their respective magic whilst collaborating with the Swoosh, and the latest pair features an earthy aesthetic in an homage to the Nike Mowabb. All of the unofficial references to the Air Mowabb are making us hungry for the real thing, but in the meantime, size? does an incredible job at replicating the perfect fall aesthetic on the crowd-pleasing Nike Air Huarache Light. The clean royal blue mesh and orange work together on the upper to contrast that lifestyle-induced tan suede mudguard while speckling on the midsole adds an attention to detail ethos that will make this pair rather coveted. Check out more detailed images after the break and even though we’ll have to anticipate whether this size? collaboration will be arriving to global retailers at a later date or not, you can always secure your pair straight from the source.

Nike Huarache History: The Evolution of Tinker’s Neoprene Sneakers

nike huarache history Nike Huarache History: The Evolution of Tinkers Neoprene Sneakers

The Nike Huarache line is another of those timeless Nike collections that we have Tinker Hatfield to thank for. The sneakers first landed back in 1991 in the form of the Nike Air Huarache, that runner that was one of the earliest examples of Nike willfully creating a sneaker that was “stripped to the bare essentials”, as the vintage ad copy claims. That stripping also manifested in the branding used – Tinker and co. scaled back the Swoosh coverage to create something that could better rest on the laurels of its technology. That technology was one that actually was in danger of not making it to retail at one point in production; the legend goes that Nike was weary of bringing the model to market, but a test run sold at the NYC Marathon in the early 90s had runners clamoring for the model and it was in turn given the greenlight.

Nike ACG Retrospective

November 15th, 2011 by | 8 comments

nike acg retrospective 1 Nike ACG Retrospective

Nike All Conditions Gear was born out of a desire to examine the sporting world outside of hardwood, grass/astro-turf, or a paved running track. ACG exemplified Nike’s explorative attitude, personified by the 1981 releases of the Magma, Approach, and Lava Dome, and in 1989, ACG became official; many of Nike ACG’s greatest designs were the result of a collaborative process behind the brand’s most famed designers and engineers like Tinker Hatfield, Toren Orzeck, and Peter Fogg, and in the thirty years of its existence, ACG has traveled the indirect path from outdoor-performance to cult worship. Shoes like the Air Mowabb paved the way for contemporary ACG designs like the Ashiko Boot and the Lunar Macleay, which, like the early ACG models, were intended to tear up Earth, but have also landed on the pedestal of those who consider ACG the utmost in design excellence. Want to learn more? Check out vintage ACG print-ads below and take a look at Crooked Tongues’ Gary Warnett’s full article to study up on one of the most historic wings of Nike history.
