Simplicity is a Beautiful Thing: Stussy Teams Up With Nike to Drop Air Max 95

Starting in 2000 with the Stussy Nike Huarache LE, the skate brand-sportswear collage has been a staple platform to debut new color ways, designs, fabrics, concepts and even exclusive models to the masses (sometimes in limited quantities.) We’ve seen it all within the Stussy x Nike frontier: from being one the first to break the idea of ‘limited releases,’ to snakeskin, neon and crocodile on sneakers, song lyrics incorporated into the design, buffalo plaid, to ACG and the S&S Collection and more. The Nike and Stussy meld always pushed the envelope but for their latest collab, they pulled it back just a touch and once again we’re reminded that simplicity is a beautiful thing. This time around, Stussy takes on Nike’s iconic Air Max 95 model and keeps it simple, offering three color ways in black, olive and navy and stamping the tongue with it’s staple ‘S’ logo. Set your alarms for the drop this Friday at Stussy Chapter stores and online, this one is sure to be high on the charts for Stussy and Nike fans alike.
