I have a real soft spot for sneakers. The colors, materials, prints and models , they can’t be crazy and special enough for me. And this summer there’s really no way around it.
And let’s be honest, a really nice pair of sneakers still feels a lot better on your feet, than a pair of heels or sandals, right?
A little while ago, the wedge sneakers made their way in to fashion, these trendy sneakers with a hidden heel were on just about every womans feet. And so they made way for the the old comfy sneaker to be fashionable again. Not only underneath your gym outfit, but also paired with your favorite summer dress or pencil skirt. New Balance to Adidas, good old Converse, and of course Nike, they are all hot-hot-hot!
I’ve got my eye on a new model of Nike, the Huarache. How do you pronounce it, I would not know, but I’m totally in love with this model!

Well, first a bit of history: the model was launched in 1991, with the idea to create a sneaker stripped to the bare essentials “. Even the famous ‘Swoosh’ was more subtle processed in the shoe. The model is inspired by the South American huarache sandals and water shoes, and makes use of neoprene fabric.
This super sneaker was in the early 90’s worn by Michael Johnson and TV hero Jerry Seinfeld.

Jerry Seinfeld’s style serves as an example for the hipsters who are totally into the ‘Norm Core’ trend.
Simple and boring, so simple that it stands out again.
After the succesful trendy Nike Free Run and Nike Roshe Run, Nike now lauched the the Huarache sneaker , in the models ‘Air Flight Huarache’ and ‘Air Huarache’.
A new must-have sneaker. However, a model that not everyone will run to the stores for, but personally I do like these special models and always love sneakers that feel like slippers, so comfy. Now I just have to choose which color combo I’m going to take …
What do you think? Will the Nike Huarache the color the streets, like its predecessors, the trendy Free Run and Roshe Run? Or do you think those will stick around for a bit longer?
