28. Nike Air Huarache Light
Actually, that should read Huarache Light AND Huarache Racer, because bar the road running and racing flat soles, they're very similar indeed. Just as the Pump Fury got a Road takedown into something a little more conventional, the Huarache Light (one of many excellent Huarache running spinoffs) was the sock and framework concept in a more palatable package for the conservative types. But don't get it twisted — it was still a strange and brilliant shoe, with the Racer refusing to tone down in shades of grape. By 1993, the OG Huarache's "Have you hugged your foot today?" slogan had become a mass love-in across brands with pretty much every running shoe on the market ridding the tongue in favor of an ankle embrace, but from the transluscent, liquid-looking lacestays to the lowkey branding, this was a masterpiece.
