Nike SB's been on a tear of bringing classic models from the Swoosh and reimagining them into skate shoes. Most recently we saw the Jordan 1 get a SB makeover, and now Nike brings another one of it's most iconic models into the skate realm with the Nike SB Huarache.
The Huarache was designed by none other then Tinker Hatfield, the mastermind behind some of Nike's most iconic models including the Jordan 11. The inspiration behind the Nike SB Huarache comes from the shoe's running lineage but now upgrades the tech and materials to stand up to the rigors of skateboarding.
The shoe features the signature Huarache exoskeleton heel overlay, and also incorporates the bootie styled inner. Much of the design remains true to the original Huarache design, but was upgraded with a constructed one-piece suede upper for a durable, abrasion-resistant effect along the high areas of wear from grip tape. Nike also updated the outsole, outfitting it with a Lunarlon sole for increased responsiveness and cushioning during impact.
No official word on the release date just yet, but expect to see the Nike SB Huarache to hit shelves Spring 2015.
