Well, let’s face it, it never really disappeared from the urban landscape as its design and comfort never cease to seduce since its creation by Tinker Hatfield in 1991 and its golden age in the 2010s. The Nike Huarache, timeless?
Its history is quite unusual, like many products imagined by the genius Hatfield. It was 1991 and he once again drew on his personal experiences for his next find. It was while wearing a neoprene water ski boot that he visualised the comfort and support needed by athletes.
His name? He’s going to get it from history since the Huarache is the name of a Native American sandal. This is how the famous Nike Huarache was born on the sidelines of the New York Marathon and then reached its peak of popularity on the high school benches of today’s thirty-somethings. Years later, the brand with the swoosh will reissue it many times and it will even become the second best-selling shoe of 2017.
In 2021, the Nike Huarache is still in demand. Our ultimate colours? A white version with black, neon yellow and fuchsia accents or a full white version available here!
