History of the Nike Air Huarache City Low

One of the iconic sneakers created by the famous Nike designer Tinker Hatfield is the Nike Air Huarache, which was released in 1991. Hatfield conceptualized many Air Max and Air Jordan models, which makes him one of the household names in sneaker culture. He got the inspiration for the Air Huarache after observing water skiers and their neoprene cleats that they normally used.

Hatfield’s idea is combining the neoprene cleats’ foot-hugging qualities with the versatility of South American sandals. This concept resulted in the unique construction of the Huarache, a shoe that has an outer cage covering a neoprene upper.

Focused on the essentials, the original Huarache design lacks the usual over-the-top modern sneaker silhouette that is rampant today. This minimalist but unmistakable design with impressive support qualities has endeared many sneaker fanatics and casuals. At this time, the Air Huarache series is among the brand’s best sellers. One of the women’s only iteration of the shoe is the low-top version of Nike Air Huarache City, which was released in 2018.
