Credit for Nike’s iconic Huarache line definitely goes to Tinker Hatfield, the creator of the model. It was back in 1991 when Nike had first introduced the silhouette as the Air Huarache, which was perhaps the brand’s most basic and simple running shoe ever, with a relatively smaller Swoosh logo. Rumor has it that Nike had not been very confident about dropping the Air Huarache in the market, but it was eventually decided to see how it would go with a limited release at the NYC Marathon back then. Even though summer is concluding, bright-colored sneakers like this latest Air Huarache colorway will continue to hit the shelves.
One particular thing that that sneakerheads may not be aware of is that water-skiing was the inspiration behind the Air Huarache silhouette. That is why Tinker opted for the Air Huarache to have a neoprene fit. Despite having been introduced into the running category, the Air Huarache had immediately stood out. The Air Huarache has also inspired other Nike models like the Air Mowabb and even the Air Jordan 7. Apart from Michael Jordan rocking the Air Huarache in commercials, the sneaker was also worn by Jerry Seinfeld on the hit sitcom series. The model is somewhat a piece of art and no wonder it has a huge following.
As of lately, Nike has been unveiled one Air Huarache colorway after another. These include one that is a part of Nike’s “Campfire” Pack featuring starry accents and another sporting Crimson and Jade color scheme. This latest colorway of the Air Huarache that Nike has already dropped comes exclusively for women. As can be seen, its mesh and neoprene uppers are dressed up in a combination of Night Maroon and University Red, while also featuring textured overlays. This sneaker is also equipped with all-White midsoles and outsoles that are covered in Night Maroon as well. Since the sneaker has already arrived at select Nike retailers, the ladies should be able to cop a pair at a price of $110.
