The days of quickstrikes in the kicks world has been lost for a while now. The proliferation of information out and the number of people willing to leak the info makes keeping a release secret. However, Nike and UK retailer size? have managed to pull off one of the better surprises in years with the Nike Air Huarache Light ‘Atomic Mango.’
The shoe is a beautiful progression piece that combines seldom used elements from the Huarache lineage to generate a new look. The colour scheme comes from the long forgotten Huarache Racer OG from ’94 and an unreleased version of the Huarache Burst made in 2005 but never seeing the light of day. The 2014 version uses the Huarache Light design, included the sole and not the Free version seen on the last Huarache Light-lookalikes. I’m sure some purists will find a way to down-talk them as not having minute details related to the original Lights but I like em plus expect more colourways from Nike over the next couple of seasons. Available now.
