Longtime allies Stüssy and Nike catapulted themselves back into the field of elite footwear collaborations last year with sought after Air Zoom Spiridon Cage 2 and Air Force 1 capsules. And in 2021, that momentum is poised to proceed as the two parties are set to deliver new life to one of their earliest sneaker projects headed up by Stüssy UK’s Michael Kopelman and Fraser Cooke from 2000 — the Stüssy x Nike Air Huarache “Desert Oak”.

The revival of the pair — which is also arriving alongside a “Dark Olive/White/Varsity Maize/Ivory” iteration — was recently teased via Stüssy’s SS21 look book, but now it has unveiled itself by way of detailed official imagery.

Presented with the identical palette that was used from its original launch 21 years ago, the low-cut kicks lean on a blend of earthy tones to outfit its entirety. Synthetic underlays are lent a “Light Straw” exterior, and come neighbored by “Desert Oak” overlays materialized with a smooth nubuck. Charcoal grey notes make an appearance upon the synthetic layer that forms the throat and wraps around the back end. Further details to call out include that of the red Air Huarache emblem affixed to the tongues, in addition to the silhouette’s signature heel cage which is coated in muted olive along the sides and sees a beige/translucent tint towards the heel.

Midsole units which usher in tonal polka dot textures and “AIR” branding towards the back are given an ivory-esque skin, and stacked on top of a darker outsole that matches up with the sides of the aforementioned cage.

These are slated to release via Stüssy on February 12 for $120 USD.

Elsewhere in sneaker news, official photos of the UNDERCOVER x Nike OverBreak in white have surfaced.
