Initially hitting the shelves in 1997, the Nike Air Humara has continued to remain a pertinent staple dad shoe. For decades following its debut after a brief hiatus, the Air Humara is set to make yet another iconic return later this month. Several collaborations were released featuring the Air Humara prior to the announcement of this newest sneaker release.
Supreme released a Supreme X Air Humara collab back in 2017. The collab offered four different colorways including black, pink, blue, and green. Last December, Nike and French label Jacquemus collaborated on an Air Humara. Made out of sustainable materials, the sneaker debuted in two colorways including Light Bone and Gold and Pink Flash/Pink Prime/Gold. This original colorway of the Air Humara is from 1996. Now classic colorway is back in a modern light.
The Air Humara OG 1996 vs. 2023
A navy blue and silver hue is across the overall presentation of the shoe. The hues are seen decorating the smooth leather overlays as well as the midsoles. The latter is complemented by solid black checkered pattern designs. Navy blue mesh makes up the tongues, toe boxes, heels, and quarter panels. Additionally, notes of bronze are sprinkled across the Swooshes on the lateral and medial panels. The bronze hue is dripped on the “Air” lettering on the heels and the tiny Nike checks on the oval badges.
This was one of the earliest colorways of the shoe from when it first dropped in the ’90s. Equipped with mesh basing on the upper and a midsole with Zoom cushioning, this shoe is made for comfort and stability ideal for a hike, or even a casual shopping trip. The chunky dad shape makes it perfectly easy to style with either baggy or skinny-fit pant silhouettes. A complimentary basic sweatshirt or t-shirt in either a similar Midnight Navy, Black, or Desert Bronze hue would complete the look. Sneakerheads everywhere will be able to cop this Nike Air Humara on February 28, on the SNKRS app for $160. Let us know what you think of these, down in the comments below.
