Back in 1991 Tinker Hatfield designed the Nike Air Huarache, and little did he know that it’d go on to become a cult staple in the footwear scene. Now, the limited-edition Huarache LE “Toadstool” is set to return as a faithful retro release.

Comprised of a “Toadstool/Black/Chestnut Brown” colorway, this LE iteration harks back to 1992 and is known for using buttery brown leather across the upper that develops a patina as it ages — as per photo evidence from the blog Snidehead — and this new version looks to be much of the same.

Brown leather works the toe, vamp, mid-panel, and eyestay areas, while black foam-padded mesh has been used for the throat and tongue, the mid-panel’s under panel, and the heel section where the signature Nike-branded heel strap also appears in black. Retro Huarache tongue tag roundels are served up in black with “Toadstool” detailing alongside matching laces, while a black Air-equipped sole unit rounds out the shoe’s overall design.

As this pair is an “LE,” a special “Limited Edition”-stamped tag can be added to the shoe and hung through the eyelets just like the original ‘92 pair had. What’s more, is that Nike has decided to release this pair in a size run ranging from UK 3 to UK 18, meaning pretty much everyone should be able to wear this rare colorway.

The Nike Air Huarache LE “Toadstool” is set to release on September 10 at retailers such as Sevenstore for $174.50 USD. Take a closer look at the pair above.

In other news, another pair of Dunks are releasing. This time, they come with a neutral gray finish alongside aged midsoles.
