Nike Air Huarache: sneaker of the week
Today we’re going to talk about one of Nike’s legendary archival sneakers, the Air Huarache, first issued in 1991 by the talented hands of Tinker Hatfield who had the genius idea while water-skiing.
In that precise moment, after being yanked up, Tinker realised how the neoprene sock that is typically used to water-ski fit nicely around his feet.
That’s when it struck him… What’s the most recurrent problem with wearing sneakers?
They don’t really conform to different shapes of feet very well,  socks do that!
This produced the first sketches that positively impressed Sandy Bodocker,  who called it the sneaker of the Gods.

To name the pair, Hatfield drew the inspiration from the most popular Mexican sandal of all times: the Huarache.
Its peculiar design wasn’t that big of a hit in terms of sales at first, but in just a short while, thanks to Tom Archie and his 5,000-pair order for the New York marathon, the Huarache became all the rage, with 250,000 pieces sold in just the first year.
A success story that continues through the years.
