The Nike Huarache line has been all over the place as of late in terms of materials.

2014 saw the Nike Air Huarache in particular mostly focused on the leather looks, but at times switching to synthetic nubuck and 3M materials. There were also some suede editions of the shoe mixed in, but those were certainly in the minority. Bumping up the density of that treatment is this new "Blue Force" Nike Air Huarache that's releasing at Footpatrol this week. The Nike Air Huarache hasn't completely abandoned its regional exclusive status, so this pair isn't necessarily a lock for an eventual U.S. release.
