The 20 Best Sneakers of 1993

2. Nike Air Huarache Light

The Nike Air Huarache Light was an even more extreme take on the Huarache concept than Tinker Hatfield's original runner. A supremely basic (and form-fitting) slip-on shoe of suede and mesh, the Huarache Light's primary structure came in the form of a simple exoskeleton with three eyelets. It's been retroed with leather panels (by Stüssy) and with a Free sole, but the original version (in the original black/blue/red colorway) is still the best.
