The Huarache, one of Nike’s iconic models, was launched in 1991 as a running shoe. It was the brainchild of legendary designer/architect Tinker Hatfield and was named after a Native-American sandal.

Meanwhile, Nike’s skateboarding line has been churning out models for and occasionally collaborating with professional skateboarders since 2002.

In 2014, Nike’s skateboarding line (SB) added another model to its roster care of Mr. Eric Koston—the Nike SB Eric Koston Huarache.
