The OG Nike Air Huarache “Purple Punch” Returns

Luis Torres

In 1991, Nike unveiled the Air Huarache. Designed by the one and only Tinker Hatfield, the Huarache ushered in a new level of comfort and support with its neoprene bootie construction along with its rubber heel cage. More than three decades after its original release, the Swoosh is celebrating the model with the return of an OG colorway.

Released in 1991 and retroed in 2018, the classic “Purple Punch” colorway is returning. The upcoming Nike Air Huarache OG “Purple Punch” stays true to the original with its white neoprene panel on the toebox, white leather overlays, black neoprene tongue & lace structure, and the signature purple neoprene on the heel of the pair. The black and purple heel cage, purple insoles and collar, and black outsole bring it all together. However, the pair includes the Huarache logo on the tongue instead of the Nike Air label from the 1991 version.

The Nike Air Huarache OG “Purple Punch” releases on February 9 for $120 on SNKRS and select retailers. As always, our sneaker monitors and release day strategy will have members ready for drop day.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
