Nike’s remastered Air Huarache has been a hit amongst longtime fans of the silhouette, with the Swoosh dropping plenty of colorways to go around. Today, we have our first look at the classic “Purple Punch” colorway, coming soon.

Nike’s remastered retro release of the Air Huarache, in celebration of its thirtieth anniversary, has brought us a wave of new colorways so far this year, but some fans have been holding out for a specific retro release, and its finally here. Despite missing out on the initial launch of original Huarache colorways, the “Purple Punch” style famously worn by Michael Johnson in a 192 TV spot is coming back this year. Featuring a tri-tone look in white, black, and purple, the fan-favorite color scheme is often the go-to Huarache reference point for many.


Nike’s latest original colorway from the Air Huarache lineup, the vibrant “Purple Punch” look, has not yet been announced for release, though they are expected to launch sometime in the coming weeks. The classic color scheme will be available from both Nike and select retailers, with the usual price tag of $120. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Nike release news.
