Nike Air Huarache OG “Escape” DH9532-201
After its large-scale comeback in 2013, the Nike Air Huarache went from being the darling of Nike enthusiasts to one of the most popular sneakers on the planet. Designed by Tinker Hatfield and released to the public in 1991, the Air Huarache was part of a containment-focused directional series with a neoprene inner liner and reduction top design; In addition to running, Tinker and Nike came up with one for basketball (Air Flight Huarache), cross-training (Air Trainer Huarache) and several other lesser-known styles.
Coming out very little throughout the first half of the 1990s, the Huaraches captured the attention of the sneaker subculture in the early 2000s through collaborations with Stussy and other sought after colourways like the “Escape”. from 2003. As part of Air Huaraches 30th anniversary, Nike chose to bring back the model in its “OG” form, and based on the relative indifference to the aforementioned Stussy reissues by the modern generation of sneakerheads, the Escape n will not escape those who really appreciate shoes.
