Not every notable Nike release thunders into stores on the hype machine. Sometimes rare retro colourways drop quietly under the radar – just like this Nike Air Huarache 'Purple Punch'. Though rumours about its re-release bubbled in 2012, this is the first time the colourway has covered a Huarache since 1991. When we interviewed Gooey Wooey – the quintessential Hua collector – he named this as one of the hardest colourways to track down, as well as his second favourite Huarache of all time. High praise indeed!
This retro comes in the exact same purple, white and black colour scheme as the OG, but revises the toe box with mesh instead of nylon.
The Nike Air Huarache Purple Punch is available from Nike online now.
