Nike’s new Air Huarache Ultra preserves the original’s revolutionary DNA while adopting more modern-day features. Embracing its forerunner’s tagline that “less is more,” the Ultra retains elements iconic of the 1991 Huarache, including logo placement, bootie construction, heel stabilizer and dotted heel, while focusing on next-generation technology.
A Flywire cord lacing system envelops the upper, offering lock-down support and unprecedented fit. The shoe’s classic dotted pattern, which had previously only appeared on the heel, now covers the entirety of the midsole unit. Now, only the tip and heel of the outsole are rubber, in contrast to the original.
The Nike Air Huarache Ultra will be available December 26 at nike.com/sportswear and select Nike Sportswear retailers.
