Sick of those all white Air Forces, Superstars and Jordan 1s to rock in hot weather? Don’t even think about copping some K-Swiss. The best bet for change is on these Nike Air Huarache ‘Pure Platinum.’
Staying close the original, the Platinums get an upgrade in the toebox with what looks like the same type of Breathe technology some Air Maxes have gotten recently, which translates to good news if you plan on rocking them sockless. Everything else in the construction of the shoe remains fairly close to the OG form.
That all white look is a thumbs-up but, man I’m cringing at the feeling I’ll get the first time they get scuffed. By the end of this summer they’ll be housework shoes for most of us. Until then, stunt in a different pair of all whites get the proper mileage out of them. They’re worth it.
The Nike Air Huarache ‘Pure Platinum’ releases today, May 1st at select Nike Sportswear retailers overseas and in the US.
