The Nike Air Huarache OG is back more than 20 years after its original release. This release marks yet another retro reference for Nike, which continues to make everything old new again.

The sneaker is made in Korea and features an elastic heel slip with a Dynamic Fit sleeve system. There is no stiff heel guard, which reduces grinding on the back of the foot, but also reduces support to a degree. Color wise, both these releases are anchored in a white foundation and trade between warm and cool colors. One features yellow balanced by a cool turquoise while the other has a royal blue intermingled with neon pink.

The shoe is named the Huarache (which is a Mexican sandal) due to its easy slip on feel.
