The Nike Huarache is a classic from Nike that has stood the test of time, so here are a few facts to celebrate the iconic shoe:
The Nike Huarache almost didn’t make it onto shop shelves due to its bizarre design, but during the early 90s it was tested at the New York Marathon where people queued to get their hands on a pair. After this it was given the green light, and the rest is history.
The name “Huarache” is what the Mexican Indians call sandals.
Nike advertised the shoes by likening them to those worn by ancient Mayans to play their form of basketball.
