Good to know
The Nike Air Huarache Print is a shoe for men and women. It features a textile upper reinforced with leather overlays and a TPU cage for better fit and support. The lace closure system is attached to the leather overlays and features two sets of eyelets for an enhanced customized fit.
The chunky midsole with the Air technology, offer sufficient cushioning and comfort.
The Huarache is being sold as a “sexy” shoe and keeping that in mind for the women, pair your Air Huarache Print with a cropped top and ripped jeans for a casual look. For a more glammed up style, match your sneakers with a stretchy dress in a neutral tone. Top it off with a light denim jacket.
Men can simply style it with jogger pants and a solid-hued tee for casual days. Selvedge denim paired with a button-down shirt will do for a slightly less relaxed event.
The Huarache line is known for comfort, and the Air Huarache Print is no different. The shoe boasts of an Air-Sole unit in the forefoot and heel that provides impact protection during runs. A Phylon foam gives lightweight cushioning while a Dynamic Fit inner sleeve provides the foot with a comfortable feel and fit.
The Nike Air Huarache first came out in 1991 as a runner that was “stripped to the bare essentials,” according to the Nike ad. The Swoosh was scaled back to better showcase a footwear that would rely on its technology rather than the brand name. The first ever Huarache featured lycra and neoprene material, a Phylon midsole, and the fabled Nike Air technology. The shoe was so light; it only weighed 9.5 oz (per shoe).
Following the success of the model, Nike released the Huarache technology across different ranges such as their Burst and Basketball lines. In fact, the silhouette has been upgraded and reissued numerous times since.
One of these iterations is the Air Huarache Print Pack that debuted in the Spring/Summer of 2015. The Pack included three colorways that had a predominantly monochromatic look. The teal-colored heel tab and floral motifs gave the shoe a vibrant pop. Several more colorways and prints followed, including a camo teal one.
- The rubber outsole has flex grooves for enhanced grip.
- Its heel strap gives the shoe a supportive fit.
