The Nike Air Zoom Spiridon Caged is coming back in a big way this year. After a long hiatus, the late 90s silhouette will be returning in 2020. What better way for it to make a resurgence than with a Stüssy collaboration.
When rumours began circulating that Stüssy would be making a full Nike Air Zoom Spiridon collection, sneakerheads were excited. The popular model has gained a cult-like status in the sneaker world, and for good reason. This latest iteration sees Stüssy take on the spinoff version of the classic Nike sneaker and bringing it into the 21st century.
Two distinct colourways are in the works giving sneakerheads a tough choice to make. First off, we have the Fossil; a well balanced earthy tone shoe draped in durable canvas and mesh. The shoe features strong like rope laces and is hit with black accents. A black Swoosh on the side and toe box gives a well-balanced branding to the sneaker. On the back, a Stüssy logo can be seen, with a cream and black midsole unit creating a nice shoe all round.
The second colourway is a hark back to the early noughties that this Nike sneaker thrived in. A contrasting black and silver mesh covers the shoe, with a silver cage wrapped around it. Silver laces, a set of black Swooshes and a crisp white midsole balance the shoe nicely. The white midsole, complete with black cushioning, is a nice addition to the sneaker and rounds it off well.
Whilst there are no confirmed release dates, the shoes are set to drop in Spring 2020 for €160. Will you be copping?
