The Nike Air Humara 17 Premium is available in men’s sizing from size 6 US to size 13 US. This low-top silhouette is offered in medium width. Women may grab a pair by going 1.5 off of the men’s sizing.

A trail and adventure-ready sneaker yet also showcases a trendy outdoor appeal that fits in the streets, the Nike Air Humara 17 Premium conveys a ruggedly luxurious style. The low-top profile with its bold and distinctive design and colorway delivers a fashion-forward appearance that enables the wearer to rock a street-inspired ensemble with an edge.

Many flaunt the Nike Air Humara 17 Premium mostly with a pair of joggers, cuffed fitted jeans, and jogger jeans.

The bold colors and premium materials that cover the upper construction of the Nike Air Humara 17 Premium sure catch the eyes of not just the longtime fans of the silhouette but all other buyers as well. The distinctive barb-fence and military-inspired camo print design of the low-top sneaker also give the shoe its own identity that enables it to be easily distinguished from the other variation models.

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 It was also originally made with the aim of creating a shoe that displays the look of “technical precision.”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.

  • The Nike Air Humara 17 Premium is covered in mesh upper construction with leather overlays.

  • Nike air callout on the side/heel part of the sneaker.
  • Nike Air branding on the tongue.
