Nike Air Huarache
After the Air Max 90 had built on the resounding success of the Air Max 1 and Air Max Light, Nike released yet another innovative lineup in 1991 with the Air Huarache. A key part of the Air Huarache is its neoprene inner sock, which continues to impress wearers with its compact and comfortable feel. The inner sock was integrated into a leather and synthetic cage, creating a novel and aggressive look. A distinguishing feature of the Huarache series is that it completely lacks the Nike Swoosh, and none of the versions, except the Burst models, have an Air window. Those who preferred an even cleaner model opted for the Air Huarache Light. The Concord colorway, in particular, has for many years enjoyed great popularity in the sneaker world. In 1992 and 1993 Nike’s iconic designers Tinker Hatfield and Eric Avar transported the successful Huarache concept to the fields of basketball (Air Flight Huarache), tennis (Air Tech Challenge Huarache) and cross training (Air Trainer Huarache).
