It’s been 30 years since
Tinker Hatfield’s initial school of thought when designing the Huarache was to strip away everything but the essentials, so the waterski-inspired upper features a snug sock-like neoprene build supported with a nylon toebox and various leather overlays. Signature “Scream Green” shades appear on the quarter, heel and collar, contrasting with a rich “Royal Blue” for a two-tone look. More “Royal Blue” is also used on the throat and tongue, surrounding a white and green Huarache badge.
Towards the forefoot, things are kept more subtle thanks to an airy white shade on toeboxes and overlays alike. Back on the midfoot, a black plastic overlay connected with a “Scream Green” heel tab adds further structure and support. Down below, soft white EVA foam midsoles with Air technology and black rubber outsoles round off the look.
Expect the Nike Air Huarache “Scream Green” to release at retailers like 43einhalb on February 19, retailing for $130 USD.
