The Nike Air Humara, born in 1996, has been making waves in the sneaker world with its various new styles over the past 10 months. And as November approaches, a fresh pale yellow iteration of this trail-ready silhouette has emerged.
When the Air Humara first made its mark 27 years ago, it boasted a more subdued color scheme of grey and navy, in line with the traditional aesthetic of hiking footwear. However, this latest release takes a bold and attention-grabbing approach that is sure to captivate both streetwear enthusiasts and adventurous souls who dare to tread off the beaten path.
The upper of the shoe is constructed with a combination of textiles and fabrics, paying homage to the fashion trends of the late 90s. An interesting twist comes in the form of suede panels, which replace the original leather build of the Nike Humara. Meanwhile, the function-first components at the profiles and collar maintain their traditional roles, and the textile-wrapped midsole offers lightweight and flexible cushioning (similar to the technology found in the Air Force 1 Wild).
And let’s not forget about the traction. The design’s latest iteration ensures reliable performance even decades later, although it’s safe to say that most people will be rocking these kicks for their fashion-forward appeal rather than to conquer challenging terrain.
For a sneak peek, check out the retailer photography of the Nike Air Humara. Be prepared because it’s set to hit nike.com in the first half of 2024, with a price tag of $160 USD.
