Nike Air Huarache Run Ultra | How to Spot a Fake


I finally jumped on the so called "white sneakers" bandwagon when I bought a Nike Air Huarache Run Ultra (Womens) at Nike Park, Robinsons Galleria. I have been eying it for the longest time and I was just waiting for the right time to buy it (read: waiting for the shoes to go on S-A-L-E). I don't know if "athleisure" trend is here to stay but WHO cares?! I have one right here, right now!

Did you know that the iconic Nike Huarache line is a water-skiing inspired sneaker? Tinker loved the neoprene fit and used it as an inspiration to create the classic Nike Air Huarache Run. The result is a sleek one-piece upper, seamless molded details, and an ultra-lightweight outsole.

Being 'light on your feet' is how one feels when wearing Nike Air- an air-infused cushioning system  technology made possible by an aerospace engineer named Frank Rudy. The Tailwind is the very first Air shoe.

But it was designer Tinker Hatfield who pushed the envelope with Air technology and urged Nike to make the Air unit visible. These days, the Air shank unit has decrease in size but still serves its purpose- great cushion for feet.

One of the most recognizable logos in the world today is Nike's black Swoosh. It has became the company's official logo in the year 1971. It was a graphic design student at Portland State University named Carolyn Davidson who created the simple logo that is fluid and conveys motion and speed.

The Swoosh symbolizes the wing of Nike, the Greek Goddess of Victory, from which the company derived its current name. It was patented on June 18, 1971. The Nike Cortez is the first official track shoe sporting the Swoosh logo. 

In 1994, Nike added the name NIKE in Futura Bold font (all-caps) above the Swoosh.
