The Nike Air Huarache continues to be a key component of the Swoosh’s range, even though it is no longer commemorating a milestone anniversary.
Returning in a new hue with summer-ready details
Tinker Hatfield’s design just debuted in a “cracked” finish evocative of the A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan collaboration, complete with vivid, summer-ready details. The tongue and profiles of the neoprene booties are bright orange and rich blue, while the inner-lining is a mellow yellow. The iconic Nike Huarache tongue marking has been replaced with a redesigned, minty graphic that could be part of a bigger Nike Sportswear line. Underfoot, the semi-translucent waffle-patterned tread adds uniqueness to the yellowish flair that covers the traction.
Overall, we believe that the new tongue logo on the Nike Air Huarache is a welcome upgrade to a classic style that has been a fixture of the Nike brand for over 20 years. The nostalgia effect of the original 2009 logo will ensure that it stays in great demand among collectors, but it appears like Nike is willing to take some risks with these new tongue logos this summer.
