It’s hard to believe that before the Nike Air Huarache made a triumphant retro return in 2013, the classic Tinker Hatfield design was an afterthought in the states. The model thrived in international markets but it took a little longer for the comfortable 1991 runner to catch on in the good ole US of A. How times have changed.
Production on the Nike Huarache has since slowed down as Nike Sportswear has given other retro silhouettes some time to shine with the likes of the Nike Sock Dart and more occupying a fond place in the hearts of many Swoosh enthusiasts. The Air Huarache did drop in some appealing colorways earlier this summer, with Undefeated’s La Huarache turning heads thanks to an iridescent heel cage. Now another Metallic Blue release is slated to arrive before summer’s end.
The Nike Huarache “Metallic Blue” features a monochromatic Game Royal upper with patent leather overlays adding a unique texture in direct contrast to the standard mesh and neoprene construction throughout. What do you think of the look? Expect this pair to arrive at retailers later this month.
