One of basketball's most beloved performance models makes its long-awaited return this spring. Nearly the introductory shoe to Kobe Bryant's signature line, the Nike Air Zoom Huarache 2K4 features an ultra-lightweight synthetic upper with an integrated ankle strap for added stability. A traditional lace system provides a snug fit, while a Phylon midsole enables lightweight cushioning. Below sits a durable rubber outsole with herringbone pattern for traction.
Pictured here is a white-based colorway of the Huarache 2K4, accented by Pro Purple on the Swoosh border, tongue, strap branding, heel tab and midsole. Metallic Silver fills in the external counter, while a purple and white outsole completes the look.
The "Pro Purple" Huarache 2K4 is available now at retailers like NikeStore.
