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.

Nike Air Trainer Huarache “Fresh Water”

Nike Air Trainer Huarache “Fresh Water”

words // Nick Engvall

To many sneaker collectors and enthusiasts the early to mid-nineties is one of the greatest eras of sneakers. During that time Nike Training was at the top of the list when it came to innovative and unforgettable designs. With shoes like the Trainer SC line (we all know, Bo Knows) and signature lines for players like Ken Griffey Jr. and Hideo Nomo. There are countless colorways that will forever be stored away in our memory banks.

One style that falls in that “forever remembered” category is the Nike Air Trainer Huarache. With its unique sockliner and exoskeleton design, nearly every colorway stirs up memories. The latest retro colorway using the popular “Fresh Water” colorway, however, stands above the rest thanks to visions of Ken Griffey Jr. going through pre-game rituals in the matching Mariners jersey, hat turned backwards, and smiling in a way that earned him “The Kid” nickname. While Griffey might not have been commonly seen in the Air Trainer Huarache, Nike Training, by using the Fresh Water colorway, ties together two of their crowning achievements in the latest version of this classic shoe.

One of, if not the most, popular and easily recognizable silhouettes from Nike Training is the Nike Air Trainer Huarache. Although there are countless styles also reside near the top of that list, the Huarache design was one that seems to turn heads of even those people that aren’t into sneakers.

With the recent return of another model from Nike Training, the Air Griffey Max II, it may come as no surprise that something else that is commonly associated with Nike Training will be returning for the spring. The always-popular Fresh Water color that has made its way onto everything from the Griffey signature line to the Air Max 95 will be returning to the Air Trainer Huarache later this month.

The Nike Air Trainer Huarache is one of the most memorable sneakers ever created. If you need further proof, the new Zoom Huarache Trainer pays homage to this classic with tasteful upgrades that bring it more current in the ever-changing and competitive world of training shoes.

One thing that remained from the early ’90s classic and made its way onto the new Zoom Huarache Trainer is the unmistakable Huarache logo. In fact, the logo has been a mainstay on the tongue of nearly every Huarache release since it was created in the early ’90s.

This upcoming colorway of the Nike Air Huarache Trainer Retro will be the next to carry the Huarache name; look for it later this spring.
