Times were weird following Michael Jordan’s retirement. The signature shoe was seemingly out of place as no one was quite fit to carry the torch left by MJ aside from AI and years late LeBron. Enter the Nike Air Zoom Huarache 2k4. Endorsed by Kobe Bryant but worn all over the pro and amateur game, this hybrid hoop shoe drew inspiration from Nike Basketball’s rich past but was all the way progressive.
This weekend, the OG “Midnight Navy” colorway receives the retro treatment. Olympic and UCONN color ties are apparent, but in reality everyone was wearing these just because they were that good to play in. Peep a preview from VILLA in the photos below.
