Nike - 1992
The Nike Air Huarache silhouette was launched in 1991. 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 using a minimal design to maximally show off the technology. It wasn’t long before the sneaker was picked up in pop culture by, for example, Will Smith, who wore it in his famous TV show Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
The sneaker we see here is the colour combination 'White / Blue Emerald / Resin'. White neoprene creates the sneaker’s basis, overlapped by Blue Emerald extending from the tongue to the heel. In between is a yellow colour called Resin. The forefoot and side panels feature leather overlays for extra strength.
