Nike has evolved their 1992 Nike Air Huarache to the minimalist Nike Air Haurache Ultra edition.
The design is based off of the philosophy that "less is more." It focuses on comfort flexibility, fit and ease of entry, resulting in a sneaker that "hugs" your foot better.
Although the concept changed a bit, the sneaker still holds design elements from the iconic 1991 Huarache, such as the logo, bootie construction, heel stabalizer and dotted heel.
"We wanted to reimagine the Huarache in a fresh and modern way for the way our female consumer maneuvers today," says Nike footwear designer Ashley Comeaux of the Nike Air Huarache Ultra. “You get the shape of the original saddle and added Nike technology with the next generation Flywire lacing system. It’s simple and clean, yet the DNA of Huarache is still there."
The Nike Air Huarache Ultra will be available December 26 at nike.com/sportswear and select Nike Sportswear retailers.
