Stussy Nike Air Huarache LE DD1381-200 DD1381-300 Release Date
The energy behind the modern sneaker market is championed by collaborations, with creative partners ranging from serious street boutiques to Europe’s upscale luxury fashion house. But among the main needle movers for Nike is Stussy, whose seemingly endless drop catalog spans season after season with highly coveted and insanely obscure projects. They not only have impact, but they also have longevity; Stussy is a true pioneer in footwear collaboration, with projects dating back to 2000. And this month it looks like the Swoosh and New York-founded label will be re-releasing that original take on – the Air Huarache. THE.
Originally released exclusively at their London flagship store, the Stussy x Air Huarache was originally created by Michael Koppelman of Stussy UK and Fraser Cooke of Nike. The formula was simple: apply a fresh new color to an existing silhouette, and they did. In fact, this moment in footwear history goes unrecognized for ushering in those neutral tones in a running shoe, especially for the Air Huarache best remembered for the neon-colored neoprene and the white leather.
The landscape of Nike collaborations is very different from what it is today. Nike has great teams dedicated to creative partnerships and design, but back then those special lifestyle-focused projects were a bit of a renegade affair. The drops were small and limited mainly because these units weren’t considered mass market items but local specialties, and the nature of these rare versions would, of course, be a key driver of the sneaker hunt – one that is largely non-existent today.
The “Desert Oak” is currently marked for release on February 12th. Stussy teased the shoes in their SS21 lookbook, further confirming that the Dark Olive pair will be returning as well.
