Authentic style of Nike Air Huarache Utility

Released in 2015, the Nike Air Huarache Utility takes the mold of the classic Tinker Hatfield’s 1991 design, but revamps it into a more beefed up, contemporary and outdoorsy style.

These sneakers retain the legendary “Huarache fit” through the neoprene mesh slip-on built and synthetic heel cage. The seamless toe box and lacing system are some of the updates done for this model.

Moreover, it gets a more winter-ready update through the use of thick upper materials and infused mudguard.

Wearing these sneakers will certainly create a bold statement, most especially because of its Dynamic Flywire and 3M perforations.

Its outsole is composed of rubber with waffle traction, making it provide more traction and grip. These sneakers can be styled easily because of its updated retro silhouette.

Pairing it with a basic shirt and joggers can take one’s street style to a different height.

Features of Air Huarache Utility

Although it carries the same retro appeal as its OG, the revamped version provides features that seemingly is expected from a Nike ACG (All Conditions Gear).

It blends different materials, starting off with its neoprene sock-like upper that contributes to its slip-on construction and iconic Huarache fit.

This technology uses lightweight materials that act like cables on a suspension bridge, making the feet more secure. These are seated on a lightweight Phylon with air sole units in the heel and forefoot, enhancing its comfort.

The outsole is composed of a Waffle-patterned rubber outsole for additional traction and grip. One feature unique to these shoes is the infused mudguard, which not only adds to its rugged appeal but gives additional protection as well.

History of Nike Air Huarache Utility

Released in 1991 by the Swoosh brand, the Huarache is one of the many designs of the great Tinker Hatfield. This sneaker is one of the models that carry the “stripped to bare essentials” theme.

This produces the “Huarache fit” upon wear. By removing the bold Nike logo and letting the technologies of the shoe do the talk, the Nike Air Huarache has been one of the purest performance shoe designs ever made.

There are multiple variations that have followed the Air Huarache since its debut in 1991. One of them is the Nike Air Utility which revamps the classic silhouette into a more rugged vibe.
