Nikehas never been afraid to Tinker with their classics — and for their latest crossover, they’ve looked to two of Mr. Hatfield’s most important and significant sneaker creations: the Air Max 1 and the Huarache.
It’s in Tinker’s DNA to create game-changing sneakers. From the revolutionary Nike HyperAdapt way back to the Air Jordan 3 (the sneaker that saved the Jordan Brand), the man has had his hand in some of the most important moments in sneaker history. The Air Max 1 is one of those, having recused Nike’s running division from the brink with visible Air units. The market ate it up. The Huarache didn’t quite have the same effect on the market, but it revolutionized the material makeups of sneakers for the future generation by incorporating plastics and neoprene booties for ultra-soft comfort. Now, the two icons crossover, with each sporting the respective OG colorway and materials of the other.
Take a peep at both sneakers and the full assortment of accompanying goodies below, including special-edition packaging and socks, and you can expect the package to arrive at select Swoosh stockists and Nike.com on November 6th throughout Asia. A US release date has yet to be confirmed, so be sure to keep it locked on HOUSE OF HEAT for updates.Update 01.09.19 FINALLY — a US release for the Nike DNA Series 87 x 91 Air Max 1 / Air Huarache Crossover Pack has been set for January 22nd, with a very wallet-friendly $130 a pop pricepoint.
