The eagerly anticipated re-release of the Nike Air Flight Huarache “OG” is finally here, and fans of the iconic basketball shoe are in for a treat. This classic design, first debuted in 1992, is set to make its return to the market with all its original features intact, including its signature “White/Varsity Purple/Royal Blue/Menta” colorway.
Designed by the legendary duo of Tinker Hatfield and Eric Avar, the Nike Air Flight Huarache was once the go-to choice for the Michigan Wolverines’ famed “Fab Five” basketball team, consisting of Jimmy King, Jalen Rose, Chris Webber, Ray Jackson, and Juwan Howard. The retro design features white leather uppers, complemented by black TPU molded heel cages and blue and purple neoprene booties with exposed white laces for a secure fit.
The Air Flight Huarache is a true masterpiece of branding, with the signature rubber tongue badges, “NIKE” on the heel cage, and “AIR” embroidered at the rear. The insole is also printed with the iconic logo, adding another layer of authenticity to this classic design. The shoe is finished off with sculpted Air-assisted midsoles and rubber outsoles, providing a comfortable and supportive fit for players on and off the court.
