It’s another weekly roundup of the top sneaker drops on this week’s Archive Weekly for the week starting 30 May 2022.
New Balance CT302
The New Balance CT302 adds a blend of performance qualities and casual elegance into a classic silhouette. It is derived from a classic tennis shoe in the 80s, giving it a timeless style. It is built to be robust for that everyday wearability as well, as it was on the court all those years ago.
There are three colourways announced for the CT302 sneaker. This includes the neutral colours of the ‘White Moonbeam’, the blue hues of the ‘Blue Multicolor’ as well as the bolder ‘Red Multicolor’. Each sneaker features the court heritage “N” logo on the sides along with a stacked midsole.
The New Balance CT302 will release this week on 3 June 2022, in both colourways.
Jordan Retro 4
Nike has released two variants of the Air Jordan Retro 4. This includes the ‘Military Black’ and ‘Infrared’ colourways.
The sneaker features a predominantly nubuck upper, which indulges in various contrasting shades to give it its respective names. This is seen on the TPU eyelets, Jumpman logos and the tongue underside. Additionally, the various shades of grey on both sneakers are seen on the mesh profile, laces and inner lining.
The ‘Military Black’ colourway brings with it junior sizing as well. Get your hands on all new colourways of the Jordan Retro 4 from 4 June 2022.
Jordan Retro 5 ‘Green Bean’
The Air Jordan Retro 5 was brought back into the fold in the mid-2000s after popular demand from sneaker fans. It returns once again in 2022 with the ‘Green Bean’ colourway.
The Air Jordan 5 has been a mainstay for the brand since returned almost 20 years ago. There’s always a sense of nostalgia with its release, bringing with it new colourways. It features a fully reflective silver upper and a green accent scattered through the design.
The Air Jordan Retro 5 ‘Green Bean’ will be available from 5 June 2022.
Nike LeBron 19 ‘Hard Hat’
The Nike LeBron 19 ‘Hard Hat’ brings an almost all-yellow theme to the sneaker. It drops ahead of the US summer, and highlighting that it is all about having the right tools to build a championship-worthy team.
It features a “canary-yellow” base throughout, including the upper, eyelets, midsole and the signature branding on the plastic panel. The all-yellow base is contrasted against black detailing in some areas, including the “LBJ” branding and the hazard-striped Swoosh logo. Another notable style element is the Air bubble sole to round off the design.
The Nike LeBron 19 ‘Hard Hat’ will be available from 2 June 2022.
