Huarache NM 'Scream Green': The Coveted Nike Release From 2015 That You'll Want In 2016

An after summer review.

Huarache NM 'Scream Green': The Coveted Nike Release From 2015 That You'll Want In 2016
End Clothing

Reminiscent of Nike’s 1991 Air Huaraches, after months of waiting, the Huarache Natural Models were finally released in the U.S around August 2015 (although they were originally estimated to hit State markets around May). While many rejoiced after letting out sighs of relief, the prolonged release did come with a catch- U.S. releases did not come in as many colorways as oversea releases did.

When I first saw regular Huaraches, I did think they were dope, but they did not seem dope enough for me to consider putting money down for them until I saw the Poison Green/Scream Green version (pictured above). Once I saw the Poison Green variation of the Huarache NMs however, I knew those were the Huaraches that really deserved my investment. And so I saved the picture of the shoes to my gallery and ensued upon an extended period of patience for the NMs to hit U.S. markets. When they finally did, it really was no surprise that the Poison Greens I wanted weren’t in stock locally.

What local and online shops did have in stock were the Bold Berry and Emerald colorway but… no thanks.

So, I ended up biting the bullet and ordering my pair overseas from End. I did so at the right time too because I literally bought the last Poison Green pair in stock. The NMs really did not disappoint and were worth the wait because when I say they are the comfiest shoes I have ever tried on, I do mean the absolute comfiest.

Cushioned atop a thick white sole with a meshed toe and a rubber heel cage reading ‘Nike,’ the Huarache NMs are extremely lightweight and just as easy on the eyes as they are on feet. The construction is like the Roshe Runs times two; the sleekness, the coziness, and the natural fitting structure of NMs are what the Roshes were, but amplified. The rope lacing scheme is perhaps the most interesting part of the shoe however.

Although regular Huaraches were notorious for running half a size small, and even a full size in some cases, the Huarache NMs run true to size, and many sneaker reviews corroborate with this. I went up half a size with mine, but only because that’s all that was available, and the fit is great. With socks on (I had on thick Nike socks when they first came and do tend to wear them with such) the fit is snug and nice, real comfy. Without socks, the fit is still great; they don’t look floppy and an unnecessarily large amount of space in the toe area isn’t there. I feel like I’m constantly stepping on pillows to be honest.

I have owned my pair for nearly a year now, and am still satisfied with my purchase. If you ask me though, the best NM colorway is the all white version. I still look at pictures of it from time to time and am in awe. The dark grey is fire too.

Monochrome themes just look too good with the shoes.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
