Nike Dunk Low Disrupt 2 Dark Beetroot
The Nike Dunk Low Disrupt 2 makes its return to the release schedule. The sneaker itself is reasonably new to the range, although still based on the 80s Nike Dunk concept by Peter Moore. This time around, the sneaker sees a fresh colourway in the form of Beetroot.
Most of the colourway is made up of black leather but derives its name from the Beetroot accents scattered throughout. This includes the miniature Swoosh embroidery, the larger Swoosh outline, as well as the heel and inner lining, up to the lettering on the tongue. In contrast to the darker colours throughout, the midsole features a splash of white.
Nike Air Force 1 Low Sail Snakeskin
The Nike Air Force 1 is another of the brand’s sneakers that have received plenty of attention of late. However, with its 40th-anniversary celebrations still underway, it’s too be expected. For this week’s drop, the sneaker has seen an overhaul with as the new Nike Air Force 1 Sail SnakeSkin release.
The sneaker features a mix of exotic materials such as its namesake snakeskin textures. This sneaker was announced as a women’s release, with its sail-coloured leather upper and matching midsole and outsole. The faux snakeskin Swoosh is coloured in beige in contrast to the rest of the sneaker. This also extends to the heel tab on the rear to complete the special aesthetic.
Nike Dunk High
Another week another Nike Dunk High release. The sneaker has become quite the classic in recent months and one of the fan favourites in 2022. Adding to this week’s Archive Weekly (24 October 2022) are two new colourways for the season. The first of these is the Bordeaux colourway, with the second being the Halloween colourway.
The Bordeaux colourway has been released for women and looks similar to the Team Red Dunk released a few weeks ago. For this colourway, it has a slightly deeper red, while keeping its more traditional white midsole.
The Halloween colourway features a season-themed orange variant with Autumn hues. The leather upper features its wraps and overlaps in bright orange, which includes the Swoosh, with the base featured in black. As with the Bordeaux colourway, it too has a contrasting white midsole.

New Balance 530
The New Balance 530 was originally released in the 80s. However, it made its return to the scene between 2014 and 2017 as the popularity of classic sneakers grew. However, it’s been in hibernation over the past five years, unlike the NB 550 which has seen multiple new releases in 2022.
For its debut in the new decade, the NB 530 sees two new drops in the form of the Ivory and Steel Grey colourways.
The vintage sneaker continues the classic 80s aesthetic along with more modernised materials in the form of premium suede and leather. Additionally, the midsole also receives a refresh with the New Balance REVite foam for that added cushioning.
