Nike Air Max 90 Current Huarache Hufquake
A combination of histories all rolled into one.
words_Nick Engvall San Francisco's HUF initially created the print known as "Hufquake" in 2006 to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the great quake of 1906, which shook the city and was felt as far away as Los Angeles to the south and Oregon to the north. While the print paid homage to the earthquake of 1906, it also captured a piece of the San Francisco culture that although is not necessarily positive, it is a part of the city that is embraced by its residents. With the number of sneakerheads located in and around the city, the print became iconic for HUF. After its initial appearance on the Nike Air Force 1 and Nike Dunk in 2006, the Hufquake print was worked into a pair of Air Max silhouettes, the Air Max 90 and the Air Max 1 in 2007. While the Air Max 1 colorway featured black and green, the Air Max 90 featured a familiar colorway of White, Neutral Grey and Military Blue that was inspired by the classic Air Jordan colorway. Using the Hufquake Air Max 90 for inspiration, Nike has recreated a more up to date version. The Air Max 90 Current Huarache Hufquake combines two popular silhouettes, the Air Max 90 and Air Huarache. The uppers feature a silhouette most resembling the Air Max 90, while elements like the plastic heel piece and use of neoprene are all Huarache. Together, with the addition of a Nike Free sole and the popular Hufquake print, the creation becomes the the Nike Air Max 90 Current Huarache Hufquake, which is now available at select Nike retailers. via atmos
