Style of the Nike Huarache EDGE

Several colorways were released for the Nike Huarache EDGE, including black/white and black/white/black. It showcases an athletic silhouette that makes it ready for the streets. At the same time, its neutral color combinations give it a low-key appeal, perfect for mixing and matching with different clothes.

For a sporty flair, the kick can be worn with a pair of joggers or track pants. Ladies can also wear them with leggings or sporty shorts. Tank tops, sweatshirts or t-shirts should complete the athleisure style. On the other hand, for a more laidback approach, the shoe can easily be paired with pants, shorts, or jeans along with a t-shirt, hoodie, or jacket.

History of the Nike Huarache EDGE

The legendary Tinker Hatfield designed the original Nike Air Huarache in 1991. It was inspired by a water-skiing shoe and designed for running. It has since transcended its function and has become one of Nike's most popular lifestyle silhouettes.

Despite its timeless status, the Swoosh brand has never tired of keeping the iconic shoe updated. Plenty of iterations have been released in the past up until now. One of the kicks in the series is the Nike Huarache EDGE. This version strips down the classic runner and modernizes its look, featuring a sleek design and fresh new colorways.

This Huarache reinvention showcases a classic cleatie design, updated with a breathable mesh upper with just the right amount of stretch. Meanwhile, the standard heel cage is replaced by a system of rubber pods, which provide stability, shape, and bonus points for a striking style.
