Nike Air Force 1 fans already had plenty to look forward to thanks to Nike's promising the return of the "Color of the Month" series, but that hasn't stopped the Swoosh from pulling another treasured pair out of the archives.

Appearing out of nowhere is this retro of the purple leather/white colorway that made its debut in 1993 when the shoe's retro campaign was still young. It's arriving under the NikeLab banner, with the product info touting a stitch-for-stitch recreation of the '93 version, right down to the old-school "Nike Air" print on back.

While this pair is up on now, no sneaker release date has been announced. For now, the shoe is listed as "coming soon."
