The Huarache Trainer may have been reborn in a lighter weight performance version equipped with Zoom Air technology but that won’t suffice for fans of the original Air Trainer Huarache. The Huarache name is a familiar site to many collectors thanks to Nike’s ability to combine timeless color combos with the sock-like fit of the Huarache design, whether it be running shoes, basketball shoes, or the general training application you see here.
The original Nike Air Trainer Huarache last released in the popular Fresh Water colorway but today’s release also uses some colors that sneakerheads should also be familiar with. Club Purple and Platinum are used as accent colors on this new release. The classic cross-trainer was made popular thanks to multi-sport athletes like Bo Jackson back in the early-to-mid nineties, and is still a sought after style in retro form today.
