The Nike Air Huarache Run made its debut back in 1991. In a time where sneakers were all pretty much rockin’ the same type of silhouette or structure, Nike and Tinker Hatfield decided to create a sneaker that was “stripped to the bare essentials”. Tinker made sure it was a lightweight runner (9.5 ounces) and also made sure it had a look of its own. Stripping away the Nike Swoosh branding, Tinker wanted to let the technology of the shoe do the talking. One of those technological advancements happened to be a blend of Lycra and neoprene fabrics that would forever change the course of Nike history.
Named after a Native American sandal, the Nike Air Huarache has a very comfortable feel to it, making it seem like the shoe is actually “hugging” your foot. Built with Nike Air cushioning, a Phylon midsole and a unique thermoplastic heel strap, the shoe was unique for the time and would go on to become one of the most revolutionary shoes Nike has ever come out with.After having a successful initial launch back in the early ’90s, it began to slowly step away from the limelight. But just like anything worth having, it has finally made its long awaited reemergence.
