Today saw the release of the much anticipated collaboration between streetwear legends Nike and Stüssy, creating 2 pairs of All Court Mids and 3 t-shirts.
It’s a perculiar shoe to look at on first sight, but the more I look at these All Court Mids, the more I like that half way ground between a pair of leather Blazers and leather All Courts. Keeping things simple with premium leather uppers and White mid-soles, Stüssy have slapped one hella big vintage shaped snakeskin Swoosh on each side and graced the heel with “NIKE” written in the more than infamous handwriting of Shawn Stüssy. Making the top 3 eyelets a royal Blue was a nice decision and reminds me of the Premium Dunks that surfaced a few years back. Stüssy’s double ‘S’ emblem sits proudly on the tongue tab to finish off this collaboration and a very reasonable asking price of £70 a pair makes them that bit better.
The t-shirts look distinctly more Stüssy than Nike, with a “…PAST PRESENT FUTURE…” slogan printed nice and big across the chest in Shawn’s handwriting (as expected). The difference here is that the t-shirts are printed on Nike tees, making for a different fit and material to your usual Stüssy garment, with the usual Nike Sportswear branding printed on the inside. For £35 a pop, you can’t really go wrong.
All of these items dropped today in-store and online at The Hideout.
