Stüssy / Nike Shoes
In 2000, Stussy partnered with Nike to produce two exciting new colors of the Air Huarache LE shoe in very limited numbers. This sneaker collaboration was the first of its kind and has continued regularly since then incorporating several models of old Nike shoes including the Dunk High, Blazer, Air Huarache Light, Court Force, Free Trail 5.0, Trainer Dunk Low, Terminator, All Court Mid and Sky Force 88 Mid. The Stussy x Nike relationship has provided a platform to introduce new colors, fabrics, updates and designs to the sneaker market and even break ground on new sneaker models.
2015: Stüssy / Nike Air Max 95
Both Stüssy and the Nike Air Max 95 celebrate anniversaries this year. With their roots originally in performance, both entities have since been adopted by different subcultures around the world over the past decades, especially within underground music scenes in New York and London.

2013: THE STÜSSY / NIKE TRAINERENDOR LOW
Always stay strapped. Welcome to the tribe’s training program. This is all about the art of the crossover – whether it’s cross training or crossing cultures. Nike pioneered the ultimate multi-activity gym and court necessity in 1987 when they unleashed their first cross trainer. Around the same time Stussy was pioneering style as multiple subcultures and lifestyles converged for global tribal gatherings and establishing iconic style.
The Stussy x Nike Trainerendor Lows are the sum of everything that came before, with added innovation from skateboarding and snowboarding engineered to transcend styles and surfaces – from street to snow and mountains to molehills.
Lightweight but rugged, there are no boundaries here – Phylon midsoles mean superior comfort and the VELCRO® forefoot straps and sticky rubber outsoles will help you stand your ground, no matter what’s beneath you. Mesh uppers put the Trainerendor Low on a diet for minimal weight, while unique faded branding and reflective underlays deliver ultimate visibility, because at the end of the day…
It ain’t where ya from, It’s where ya at.

The Dunk model was initially developed as a basketball shoe and later became popular with skateboarders due to the flat sole which helped increase board feel.

These sneakers were an exercise in limited distribution as they were only available at Stussy Chapter Stores in New York, London, Tokyo, Los Angeles (NY.L.T.LA.) which was unheard of at the time. This created a buying frenzy for those in the know who were limited to one purchase per day of the available 24 pairs stocked in each store per day (12 black and 12 brown). The result was a lineup at each store every morning for over two weeks until the stock was gone.
2000: STUSSY / NIKE AIR HUARACHE LE
This is the old Nike shoe that started it all. The Stussy x Nike Air Huarache LE was released in 2000 as a special project in Europe between Stussy UK’s Michael Koppelman and Nike’s Fraser Cooke. Their concept was simple: take their favorite Nike running shoe model, create two cool new colorw’ays and produce them in limited quantities to sell at the Stussy London store. What they started was an ongoing tradition that continues to push the boundaries of footwear and style. These kicks are hard to find.
