A hemp-covered Air Force 1 “Fossil Stone” collaboration is set to release by Stüssy and Nike Sportswear. Proffering two well-received Air Zoom Spiridon Cage 2s in April, then following that up with a third colorway later in the month after that the two reunited in July for new takes on the Air Zoom Kukini and Benassi slide the longtime collaborative partners have been on quite the hot streak in 2020. Now the partners have put forth a sturdy style that still retains a California beachfront ethos.
Constructed fully of rough-hewn “Fossil Stone” hemp are the soft tanned uppers. The entire top half may be uniform in color — and similar in material to one of the aforementioned Spiridons — it’s extremely unique in detail. Toeboxes are embellished with Stüssy’s double S logo, a timeless takedown of Chanel‘s interlocking C graphic and Swooshes feature a two-part embroidered build with a line directly down the middle.
The only deviation from the upper’s monochromatic palette are the white tongue tags combine with the laces. These tags also add a healthy dose of branding, with Shawn Stussy‘s hand-scrawled signature sitting above a small Swoosh and a list of International Stüssy Tribe-approved cities. Bone-colored midsoles and outsoles complete the look.
Though official release details and pricing information have yet to be revealed,they are rumours that the sneaker will drop this holiday season, and will be accompanied by a black AF1 collaboration as well.
