Stussy and Nike's collaborative plans for 2022 include a three-pack of takes on the Air Force 1 Mid, and after a black and white pair was revealed at the tail end of last year we now have our first look at the collection's second colourway. Debuted by @fffiles, the mostly black colab is a nod to a Stussy x Nike effort from years past, namely a Dunk High they released all the way back in 2001.
That high-top Dunk boasted the same black leather upper and white midsole/black outsole combo as this mid-cut Air Force 1, but its most specific similarity is the black snakeskin used on the Swoosh. Plenty of new details are on display as well, namely a perforated double S graphic on the toebox, a silver medallion on the heel tab, a Stussy text hit on the collar strap's Velcro anchor and branded lace tips. The shoes also come packaged in a special cream and red box.
A release date for this Stussy x Nike Air Force 1 Mid has yet to be announced at the time of writing, but it's likely to drop in the coming months as part of the Air Force 1's 40th-anniversary celebrations. Keep it locked right here for more info as soon as it's made available.
