Using two signature NIKE silhouettes, the Air Huarache and Air Max 1, Tinker fused both to create a homage to the classic NIKE designs—originating in 1987 and 1991, hence the moniker.
The colour palettes of the two models have been swapped. The Air Max 1(AM-1) taps on the Huarache’s ‘Scream Green’ colourway of white, royal and volt, whereas the Huarache adopted the AM-1’s red, soft tan and white shades.
Other elements that the AM-1 have borrowed include Huarache’s multi-eyelet throat styling, a new tongue in neoprene and a heel clip in plastic. The Huarache no longer has its rubberised circular tongue badge and it has added on an original AM-1 mudguard.
The series pack comes in a dual-layered box with vibrant detailing. The set also comes with a tissue paper of the first sneaker sketches, matching pairs of socks and a design booklet that encompasses the information and tech specs on both sneaker models.
