After dropping two well-received colorways of the Air Zoom Spiridon Cage 2 at the tail end of March, Stüssy and Nike Sportswear are back with a third style of the early ’00s silhouette. Dubbed the “Black/Cool Grey,” this new makeup offers a lifestyle-geared build and a stark colorway, taking a onetime high-speed running sneaker and turning it into a perfect style for the streets.
Most versions of the Steven Smith-designed Spiridon model use a mesh upper with sleek synthetic overlays, but this fresh Stüssy iteration swaps out the synthetics for rough-hewn textiles on the rear half and all the overlays. Swooshes take on a textile construction as well, and the entire upper is dressed in black for a monochromatic look. A small touch of extra Stüssy branding appears via debossed patches on the tongue and heel, working with a final spell-out on the toe bumper.
The Stüssy x Nike Air Zoom Spiridon Cage 2 in “Black/Cool Grey” is set to release on the Stüssy webstore come May 15, and is priced at $160 USD. The T-shirt and beanie’s MSRPs have not yet been revealed, and a wider release of the capsule may follow in later weeks.
