Nike Air Huarache “Orca” release date and info



A classic designed by Tinker Hatfield that changed the world of running shoes when it debuted in 1991 before becoming a lifestyle favorite, Nike‘s Air Huarache is back in all its OG glory to celebrate its 30th anniversary, and one of its revived colourways is “Orca”. A striking mix of black and white which differs greatly from other original Huarache colourways like “Scream Green”, “Bright Mango” and “Deep Magenta”, the “Orca” shows the yin and yang of the material construction inspired by the water ski boots from the Huarache while serving up a healthy dose of ’90s Nike Sportswear style.

Black and white are indeed the only colors used on the “Orca”, but each offers maximum effect. The former is used on the base layer of the upper, namely the neoprene toe area, midfoot, collar and heel, while the latter appears on the fender and leather support system. superimposed of the midfoot. Huarache’s signature heel band uses a black anchor system and transparent heel strap, while black and white meet on the tongue badge. At the bottom, plush white midsoles and black outsoles complete the look.

In honor of the revival of Air Huarache “Orca”, European retailer Asphalt Gold has also produced a short film to accompany its release – a nod to the “brighter days ahead” promised by the return of the summer. You can expect the Nike Air Huarache “Orca” to release at Asphalt Gold and other Swoosh retailers on June 11, priced at $ 120 USD.
