The Nike Huarache Run '91 QS is imported
inspired by Native American sandals, the Tinker Hatfield-designed Air Huarache hit the scene in 1991, with a neoprene-like sockliner that offered total comfort in a lightweight package. The Men's Nike Air Huarache Run '91 QS Running Shoes are a replica directly from the vault.

Everything old is new againA fellow who works at the parts house I go to told me that Nike was making this classic shoe again. Being an owner of the original, I remembered how much I liked it. Correction: It was the best pair of shoes I ever owned.
So, I had to get a pair. I was surprised I could custom order them. I changed the original colour scheme. And without knowing what the NikeId thing was, I had to opt with the plastic circle on the tongue instead of the original fabric.
Shoes arrived earlier than stated. First impression that outwardly they looked good. Picking them up, I noticed that they didn't seem constructed as well as the original ones. (I have a used pair of second generation since my first pair were stolen.) The faux leather fabric wasn't as nice. But the biggest thing was that they fit tighter than I remember. I liked the original pair since i've always fit a European 43 excellently. US 9.5 always seemed to vary shoe to shoe for me but the Nike was spot on, at least my old pair was. Comparing it, I can see it is visibly a bit shorter and narrower. What made me pull the trigger was that the pair I bought was reviewed as being spot on in size while other Huaraches listed on the small side.
This does depress me a bit . I was going to use them as an informal shoe for work meets.
Hence, my 2 star rating. Not leather like the original. Shorter than original. Narrower than original.

Best Huarache I've ownedI have three pairs of Huaraches and these are easily the best ones I've owned. Quality materials, close to OG shape, and a more true to size fit than previous models. If you're a fan of Huaraches, I highly recommend getting these. The best Nike retro - in terms of quality, shape, colorway and overall value - since the Anniversary Air Max 1.

First Huarache I've ownedAnd I am already in love with it. The shoe is actually very comfortable and snug. It quite literally "hugs" your foot. The 1991 colorway is gorgeous and keeping the original logo on the tongue makes it even better. I'd go half a size up if you have wide feet, as the neoprene sock liner might feel a little tight otherwise, I got a 12, and I usually wear an 11.5 [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
