Black Friday has long been the biggest shopping day of the year, with frenzied crowds coming out in droves to take advantage of the great deals. It will be especially chaotic for sneakerheads this year given all the heat that is dropping right around Thanksgiving time. Looks like we’ve got another one to add to the list, the black colorway of the Nike Air Huarache Free 2012 Basketball. This hybrid sneaker pieces together two great Nike technologies from differing eras – pairing up the form fitting neoprene booty of the Huarache with the flex-groove outsole of the Frees. Different sport specific models will be available, but it looks like the basketball ones will drop first, with 21 Mercer teasing this photo and billing it as a Black Friday exclusive. Let us know if they are on your radar for next week and stay tuned for word of these hitting anywhere else.
