Who should buy the Nike Air Huarache LE
It's one of the mid-top Swoosh options worth adding to your streetwear wardrobe if:
- you are looking for a premium-looking sneak
- you are building a Huarache arsenal in earth colors
- you want a uniquely styled, easy to put on sneaker
- you prefer chunky sneaks, particularly those that won’t give you foot fatigue
- you are scouring for a reasonably-priced pair among the fall sneakers
Who should NOT buy it
If you prefer light-colored kicks, jump into the Nike Adapt Huarache and Nike Huarache Type. If you opt for high-top Huaraches, look over the Air Trainer Huarache and Air Flight Huarache Ultra.
Nike Air Huarache LE in crisp retro form
Air Huarache first surfaced in 1991 as a cross-breed of water ski boots and sandals. This polarizing Tinker Hatfield out-of-the-box design found a solid fanbase among sneakerheads who loved its exceptional comfort and style.
On its 30th anniversary, this kick reappears in Limited Edition, prepped in earthy colorways suitable for the autumn season.
Superior in quality
Nike didn’t scrimp in materials. Some say this limited edition Huarache got the Travis Scott vibe into it, given its premium look. And the best part, it doesn’t come at a high price.
Soft and smooth cover
The suede material that wraps the toe feels soft. The vamp, where it is neatly laid, flexes well when moving around.
Buffers impact for a comfy ride
Huaraches are among the super comfortable kicks with the Swoosh label. Like the earlier versions, this too comes with a thick sole that's ready to cradle your foot even as you wear it beyond 10 hours a day.
Stretchy neoprene opening
The foot-hugging feel offered by this shoe is reminiscent of the fit granted by the Prestos. Just like the Air Prestos, this shoe isn't bottom-heavy.
Classy and upscale look
It isn’t treated with loud color elements, but it comes visually attractive still in relatively darker tones. Its neutral color scheme gives it a deluxe vibe like most smartly dressed casual sneakers.
Amazingly light and flexible
It appears bulky and heavy with all the overlay and heel strap accent, but it is surprisingly light. The upper isn’t thickly padded all over. Even its leather components aren’t stiff in any way.
Wide-footed users might find the need to size up as this kick tends to run narrow and snug.
