The 1991 classic gets a contemporary rework.
Even if you're not that into sneakers, chances are you probably know about the Air Huarache. Inspired by water skiing, the retro shoe was designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield all the way back in the early '90s, and even after three decades, it features more or less the same design. While the Huarache has seen a few offshoots over this time period, it's now getting its most avant-garde redesign yet with the Nike Air Huarache Craft "Light Silver Citron Tint."
While the Air Huarache Craft still features a neoprene bootie and a ballistic mesh base just like the original, other materials and fabrics have received a major upgrade. Painted in a light silver hue, the upper is done up in various buttery suede panels. The midfoot cage works in tandem with the lacing system for a sleek and seamless aesthetic, while volt Swooshes make their way throughout. Around the heel you'll find a bright ocean bliss counter that's dipped in a glossy TPU plastic, and underneath it all, the Air midsole arrives in pastel pink oxford, clashing and complementing the rest of the colorway at the same time. This is then finished off with a speckled tan sanddrift outsole that reminds us of ISPA colorways from the past few years.
The Nike Air Huarache Craft Light Silver Citron Tint W will be a women's exclusive and will set you back $130 at Nike and select retailers when it finally releases next Spring 2023. More colorways are expected to be unveiled over the coming months, so make sure you follow Sole Retriever on Twitter and download our official Mobile App if you haven't already!
