After releasing the NikeCraft General Purpose in a gray colorway last June, Tom Sachs and Nike have announced that the collaborative shoe is returning to the forefront next month.
The latest iteration of the NikeCraft General Purpose sports a predominantly yellow knit upper called “Archive” that dresses both the base and the suede overlay panels at the forefoot, heel counter and eyelet reinforcement. The white Swoosh logo on the sides, white laces and orange heel-tab on the tongue and heel break up the uniform look.
A three-piece sole consisting of an EVA foam core, a soft rubber midsole and a durable rubber outsole complete the design. There is also Tom Sachs branding printed on the inside of the tongues, while Nike branding can be found on the insoles, heels and tongues.
“We opened up the archive, wore it out, stripped it down, kept what worked and added what was missing in pursuit of a perennial sneaker. An ever-better sneaker. A never-settle sneaker. A round-the-clock, made-to-last, built-to-code sneaker”, we can read on the press release of the collab.
This Tom Sachs x NikeCraft General Purpose “Archive” should be released on September 1st for 110 $ USD via NIKECRAFT and worldwide on September 2nd.
