Nike Air Humara 17 Premium History
The Nike Air Humara was first introduced in the year 1998 and was designed by Nike’s well-known, legendary designer, Peter Fogg. He is the same man behind most of the brand’s masterly off-road footwear collection. The design, though, almost didn’t make it to production as Fogg’s developer wanted to stop working on the design as they didn’t have any likeness for it. But Fogg and his marketing team pushed through and fought for the design as they believed in it. Thus, the birth of the Nike Air Humara.
The first shoe that Peter Fogg designed for Nike was the Nike Air Humara which stays as one of his favorites, and that was what made the silhouette special. The Original Nike Air Humara has also served as one of the main roots for Fogg’s influence in the Nike shoe designs. It was also originally made with the aim of creating a shoe that displays the look of “technical precision.”
Having a background in airplane interior design, Fogg took inspiration from the wheel and front disk brake of a motorcycle which is then shown through the spokes-like design of the shoe fingers at its center.
The silhouette has gained the favor of many, especially among the hardcore Nike and the 90’s ACG fans and it has been released in various colorways and material iterations. In the year 2017, the Nike Air Humara 17 was brought back by Supreme for their another collaboration with Nike. Supreme didn’t make any massive changes on the silhouette to retain its original design and only focused on its colorway. They gave the classic shoe a fresh, bold look with its eye-catching branding.
In 2018, the silhouette was given the premium touch. The Nike Air Humara 17 Premium exhibits a “military-inspired camo print” and a barbed fence pattern on its upper and all built in premium materials.
