The last few months have seen a wave of notable collaborative releases from UK retailer size? and their latest effort, reworking the Air Huarache Light, is one of the strongest so far.
Drawing inspiration from the natural beauty of Moab, Utah and the colours of the horizon, the shoes colour way replicates the hues of blue from the skyline as they meet with the burnt sand to create an intersecting orange burst. The colour treatment was originally found on the iconic ACG Mowabb release which brought the ‘Huarache to the mountains’, and the same shoe was also the pioneer of the now popular speckled midsole that can also be found on this model.
The latest iteration of the shoe features mesh on the upper which works with the neoprene sock liner for added comfort and stability, as well as suede panelling on the mudguard for durability. Additional features include the black and white speckled midsole, branding on the heel and heel tab, with the huarache logo on the tongue.
The Air Huarache Light has seen a bit of a resurgence of late, most notably as the focus of Footpatrols ‘Concrete’ release and the OG ‘Ultramarine’. In my opinion it’s one of the most understated silhouettes and when it’s done well, it can make for a great shoe, and this Autumnal rendition is an example of that.
The size? x Nike AIr Huarache Light will be available at size? from the 31st of October.
