First Look at the Stüssy x Nike Air Force 1 Mid “Fossil” Collaboration Shoe

Stüssy’s latest Nike Air Force 1 looks a lot like his past AF1 collabs. And guess what? Nobody complains.
In December 2020, Stüssy dropped their Nike AF1 “Fossil” collaboration, which incorporated a light beige woven upper with lots of texture, intarsia Swooshes, the works.
Nicely dressed with a tan sole and co-branded tongue, the shoes still command a reasonable price. resale price it ranges from $370 to over $500 and it’s not hard to see why.
These are great shoes, people!
So great that Stüssy is essentially bringing them back for 2022, according to some images uploaded by sneaker leaker @SoleByJC.
In line with the other mid-top Stüssy AF1s we saw earlier this month, Stüssy’s latest Nike Air Forces are still mid-top, with a co-branded ankle strap and the same Stüssy badge on the heel. .
The tonal sand hue is timeless, offering an inherent appeal to the silhouette.
I mean, if Stüssy can make the fairly advanced Nike Spiridon more accessible by making it beige, the classic Air Force 1 will look even better.
Moreover, you can dye these woven rods to your liking as Stüssy himself did with Belvedere and Wonderland.
Unlike the rumored Stüssy Air Penny or the recent Nike Huarache, Stüssy’s AF1 Mid is immediately wearable.
That’s why I don’t really get the constant laments of Nike Mid-top silhouettes – the Jordan 1 Mid, of course, doesn’t matter, but the AF1 Mid is as versatile as its Low counterpart, with perfect proportional balance.
Most of the comments on @SoleByJC’s Instagram post are admittedly quite positive, but there’s always a mix of back and forth (“No, still need the stockings,” one person said), which is disconcerting.
Enjoy it folks, these colorways are hot.
