Since its first release in 1991, the Nike Air Huarache has been through a lot in the last 32 years. Tinker Hatfield’s scuba gear-inspired silhouette recently came out in a new “Black/Volt” colorway with changes to the original blueprint.
Its fun accents keep things exciting and new
The tongue and collar are made of neoprene, and the toe box and profiles are made of reinforced nylon. This is a performance-focused, functional design. Most of the shoe is different shades of “Black,” but the Air Huarache logo on the tongue and the branding on the non-standard pull tab at the heel are both a bright neon green. Midsoles and their waffle-patterned traction underfoot go back to a stealthy look, which shows how appealing the one-two-punch that Nike keeps coming back to is.
Even though it’s 32 years old, the Nike Air Huarache is still a good addition to the collection of any sneakerhead because it has a mix of old and new features. If you really like the Huarache, the “Black/Volt” colorway is a no-brainer. The colors go well together, and the neoprene is a nice contrast to the rest of the shoe.
