Last month we talked with Aaron Cooper about the Nike Zoom Huarache Trainer and revealed a number of the college inspired colorways that have been created. We also looked at the Virginia Tech Zoom Huarache Trainer and the Miami Hurricanes Zoom Huarache Trainer. Today we have a look at another college inspired colorway, this one designed for the athletes attending the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania.

As expected the Pitt school colors of Blue and Gold are placed on the Zoom Huarache Trainer. The dark blue is offset with a white midfoot strap and midsole for a well balanced look. As with all colorways of the Nike Zoom Huarache Trainer, the performance details are here as well. Responsive Zoom Air technology combined with the exoskeleton design makes for a lightweight training shoe. The midfoot strap serves up sufficient lockdown, apparently enough for Amar’e Stoudemire to hoop in (See our Sneaker Watch coverage).
