Official Images: Stussy x Nike Air Force 1 Mid
After Stussy and Nike released two textile takes on the Air Force 1 Low in December 2020 – then hand-dyed 'em for a second drop in January 2021 – the West Coast OGs and the Swoosh are set to elevate their partnership both literally and figuratively in 2022 with a two-tone Air Force 1 Mid. The style first leaked earlier in December and now official images have surfaced – showing off the mid-cut Air Force 1's special branded details and elegant construction.
The black leather detailing on the upper is obvious, but the lighting used on this set of official images makes it difficult to discern exactly what shade is used on the quarter and toebox. The above-mentioned leak images made it look white, but here it in fact appears to be a soft grey, slightly darker than the white midsole. Aside from the colour conundrum, this Air Force 1 Mid replaces its standard toebox perforations with a special interlocking 'S' logo, adds a jewelled badge to the heel and equips Stussy's 'World Tour' graphic on its tongue tag. The collar strap adds a final touch of flair with a text hit.
Currently, a release date for this Stussy x Nike Air Force 1 Mid has yet to be announced. However, it'll likely drop in the early days of 2022 alongside a black nubuck pair.
