The Nike Air Flight Huarache Premium
Black/Anthracite-Challenge Red of Men's Nike Shoe
features the same unique ankle cut-out design that made the original famous, and its updated combination upper lends durability and enhanced comfort. A cushy Phylon midsole and Air-Sole unit in the heel deliver the performance cushioning that appealed to early '90s hoop phenoms around the country.
Sometimes, all it takes is a little change to make a big impact – just ask renowned designers Tinker Hatfield and Eric Avar.
With the simple notion that “less is more,” they would go onto change the landscape of basketball and cross-training with the creation of the Air Flight Huarache and Air Trainer Huarache in 1992. Today, both revolutionary designs return to the culture’s forefront, while retaining what made them great.
A hardwood classic, the Air Flight Huarache emits cold tones with a reflective, all-black leather exoskeleton. Inspired by the fit of a waterski boot, a black neoprene inner-sleeve can be seen through mid-foot cutouts, reducing the amount of material while maintaining its structure. A speckled midsole with red accents around the heel and outsole add small punches of color.
Conversely, the Air Trainer Huarache fuses softer materials with a warm, all-red suede design. Mirroring the same cutouts and sole treatments of its counterpart, a red and black neoprene bootie retains its innovative fit. Completing the design, a black forefoot strap delivers the lockdown stability that has made the legendary silhouette one-of-a-kind.
