It seems the Nike Air Huarache is in for a busy year, as the brand has prepared the classic in a plethora of new colorways. Nods to the iconic Mowabb, for example, are among the many upcomers, and this “Metro Blue/Sport Royal” make-up only adds to the list.
Next to its ACG-inspired counterpart, this pair is far more straightforward. Forgoing any obvious reference, the upper leads with its neutrals, with white dyeing the leather overlays, synthetic toe, and midsole. And while the laces and tongue patch are dressed similarly, they’re much easier to overlook as the aforementioned blues are not far behind. Black, then, encases the heel partway, interrupted by additional cool tones.
