Nike’s Air Huarache debuted in 1991, designed by Tinker Hatfield as a bold, lightweight runner with comfort at its core. Today, things are much the same, only this version is much more subtle. The form-fitting neoprene sock — famously inspired by water-skiing boots — supportive heel cage and Air-cushioned sole are just as we know and love, only everything is coloured in black and there are tumbled leather overlays detailed across the uppers.
There’s a nod to the shoe’s debut advertisement campaign, too, with “HAVE YOU HUGGED YOUR FOOT TODAY?” printed on the outer sole.
Born at the inventive hands of Tinker Hatfield, the Air Huarache redefined streamlined performance upon its debut in 1991 by asking: ‘Have you hugged your foot today?’
Designed for those who like to go their own way and break new ground, the Huarache’s surprising silhouette and unrivalled comfort changed the game — and now the all-time classic is back with the Air Huarache Hyperlocal London ‘Triple Black’ colourway.
Specifically created and inspired by London’s sneaker community and featuring the simple iconic question on the sole, the Huarache’s famous design lines, iconic heel clip and durable leather overlays means its just as comfortable in its own skin as it was 30 years ago.
