Archive Weekly is back with another round of sneaker releases for the week of July 11, 2022. This week, Nike continues to put on a strong showing, just as it did last week. This time, however, the team has also included a very bold PUMA sneaker.
Nike Air Force 1 Low
For this week’s release of the Nike Air Force 1 Low, Archive included two colorways. These are the ’82 edition as well as the World Champs edition.
Both versions of the sneaker are based on the classic AF1 version. The ’82 edition is a nod to the sneaker’s first drop in 1982, marking the silhouette’s 40th anniversary. On top of that, the sneaker is made from partially recycled materials in the midsole giving it a speckled look. The laces, tongue and lining use more conventional materials in an all-white finish. The two-tone blue Swoosh logo and heel tab stand out from the rest of the muted colors.
While the ’82 has a subtle approach, the World Champs variant is much bolder, while retaining its predominantly white upper. It features a mix of textures, especially on the sides and toe box. Black colors are contrasted on the outsole, Swoosh logo, collar and heel. The star of the sneaker, however, is the golden “championship belt” on the laces with its Nike logo.
Both colorways of the Air Force 1 Low will release on July 17, 2022.
Nike Waffle One
The Nike Waffle One is one of the most classic sneakers in its line. The sneaker was refreshed in 2022 with its Coconut Milk colourway. These off-white shades show up on the upper with slight tonal shifts across the many overlays.
Contrasting are the black details, which include the “shadow” Swoosh under the main logo, as well as the stitching around the collar. The sneaker releases this week, July 14, 2022.
Nike Pegasus 83
The Pegasus line is the oldest line in the history of the Nike brand. It was the go-to running shoe when it was launched and spawned many performance runners thereafter. The Pegasus 83 is based on the OG model with its retro style and colors.
Nike continues its double Swoosh take as with the AF1 and Waffle One above. He then adds to that his mini-Swoosh on the side front. The sneaker is also made from more durable materials to usher in the next generation of the classic line.
The Nike Pegasus 83 will be released on July 14, 2022.
Short PUMA TRC Blaze
The PUMA TRC Blaze Court returns to shelves in a bold new colourway. It stands out from the pack with its Neon Citrus and Fizzy Melon colors, giving it a toned, predominantly orange look.
The TRC Blaze Court is an extension of the Blaze of Glory range, included with its Trinomic midsole for extra cushioning and support. The low-boot approach draws inspiration from the basketball era, transitioning from the court to the street.
The PUMA TRC Blaze Court is set to release on July 15th.
