Editor's Notes: With its work alongside Nike, size? has provided sneakerheads with a slew of coveted collaborations and exclusives over the years, pulling from a rich knowledge and archive of sneaker history.
Together the pair has covered a plethora of silhouettes, offering up head-turners like the "Greedy" inspired Air Max 95 "20 for 20," Nike Shox TL "Viotech," Dave White's wearable art 95s, and the Air Max 93 "Metals Pack." Exclusives from size? have become a staple of the Swoosh's seasonal release calendar, marking partnership milestones and nostalgic recountings of colorways long passed.
The latest exclusive set to make headway courtesy of the European retailer finds itself dressing Tinker Hatfield's Swooshless classic, the Air Huarache. A silhouette with a reputation as one of the most unique entries in the Nike arsenal and one of the mid-2000s most divisive, the sneaker is characterized by its mixed fabrication paneled upper, neoprene liner, and plastic heel clip.
Most often displayed in an arrangement of retro colorings, the latest fixture its coloration from the size? x Nike Lunar Air 180 ACG and 1991 Air Terra. As you'd expect from the ACG sub-division, the final finish is straight out of a '90s outdoor catalog – subtlely is not an option.
Purple suede overlays frame the pink mesh of the toebox and the black neoprene liner. Bold contrasting pops of red and yellow sit at the tongue, laces, and heel clip, while the sole receives a beige and black speckled treatment.
