Pardon me for the long delay between posts. I know you all were fiending for a shoe fix. Fortunately, I was unable to attend to VK duties because I was on holiday in lovely Cape Town, South Africa. For those who haven’t been there, all I got to say is, you gotta go. Anyway, I’m back for another one.
Haters gonna groan, but today we are featuring the Nike Huarache Free 2012. This is a re-design of the old huarache running shoe from ’92, but with the Free technology. I had a pair of Huaraches B.I.T.D., and they were truly sweet – lightweight, supportive, and breathable. I imagine incorporation of Free is only going to make these babies even more cushy.
I checked with Nike, and they confirmed that this shoe is vegan. However, the Nike Store only sells the black/yellow colorway. It is fully possible they may just be going by that one. There are myriad other options here, and some of them look suspiciously leather-like. Thus I have pictured only the ones I can tell are synthetic. They are characterized by the matte, rubbery like surface. I avoided all the shiny and smooth ones. Buy those at your own risk.
