Back before the sneaker blogosphere, before smartphones and before broadband, sneakerheads used to have to turn to print magazines like Vogue to get an inside look at the industry. It was in that venerable fashion mag back in 1997 that Nike designer Peter Fogg discussed his inspiration for the timeless Terra Humara trail runner, a model whose influence can still be felt to this day. Not only is Jordan Brand about to release a new style with obvious inspiration from the Terra Humara’s distinctive eyestay, but the original has been revamped with a new cushion that gives the Nike Air Max Humara a fresh look. Somewhere between the Air Max 90 and 94, the Air Max Humara’s three-windowed heel cushion is an eyecatching anachronism, particularly in pink on this pair currently available for pre-order from Titolo.
