Many regard the Huarache to be one of the best basketball shoes to ever hit the hardwood floor. Modeled after the original Flight Huarache, Nike designer Eric Avar created this instant classic for Kobe Bryant in 2004. It was also the first shoe Nike designed for Mr. Bryant after he left adidas, building the foundation for his storied relationship with them thereafter.

Debuting for the second time, the Nike Huarache 2K4 will be making its way to local retailers this summer. This specific colorway will feature an all blue color scheme with hints of black and white throughout the shoe. The outsole is dominated by a white herringbone pattern providing ultimate traction for dusty and well maintained courts alike.  Zoom Air provides low profile cushioning system that isn’t too soft or firm like some of the more recent Kobe models.

This one drops Summer 2012 with an expected price tag of $140.00 USD.

As always, we’ll keep you posted on any future updates and release info @kicksologists or on Facebook.
