Nike - 1992
In 1991 the Nike Air Huarache design first appeared on the market. The sneaker was designed by none other than Tinker Hatfield, who was inspired by water skiing for this model. He wanted to create a running shoe that used minimal design, so that the technology could express itself. Soon the sneaker was picked up in pop culture by, for example, Will Smith, who wore the sneaker in his famous show Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
The sneaker shown here is made in a color combination of 'White / Blue Emerald / Resin'. White colored neoprene creates the base of the sneaker. From the tongue the base is overlapped by 'Blue Emerald' which extends to the heel. In between we see a yellow color called 'Resin'. Leather overlays can be found on the forefoot and side panels that provide extra strength.
