The iconic Air Huarache boasts a bevvy of impressive, truly singular features, from the uniquely chunky midsole to the neoprene inner-bootie and leather exoskeleton. The thing’s nearly perfect, so it’s hardly in need of an update. But an update it’s getting, and there’s plenty to like about it.
The Nike Air Huarache Run Ultra features the same bootie-like construction through the upper, but fuses it together with the exoskeleton for a sleeker, slimmer silhouette. Hyperfuse detailing at the toe continues the tech overhaul, and an elastic band is used across the heel, further slimming down the classic.
It’s the perfect kind of update, really — enough design language to clearly call to mind the original, yet plenty of technical innovation, giving the new model an identity of its own.
Take a closer look at the Nike Air Huarache Run Ultra Black/White below — and check out the BR editions if you prefer more air-flow — and stay tuned for launch info.
