Updating a retro sneaker is risky business, but somehow, Nike always seem to get it right more often than not. Look no further than the well-received updates to the Huarache lineage including the recent Huarache NM and the upcomingHuarache Utility. Now, we’ve caught wind of yet another new Huarache silhouette and from the looks of things, it may be the best upgrade yet.
Previewed in a pristine “White/White” colorway, we’ve yet to see an official name for this model, but it looks very similar to the BR — short for “Breeze” or “Breathe” — versions of the Air Presto and Air Max 90.
Overall, it’s not too far from what we’re used to seeing on the Air Huarache runner, but there’s a noticeable change in the materials and ankle cut of the silhouette. The traditional neoprene bootie has been tweaked with a breathable open mesh, while the collar extends higher than usual for added support.
Currently, there’s no further information on these, but we’ll be sure to update you as soon as we hear something.
