Good friends, Stüssy and Nike, are rumoured to be returning to the sneaker scene with a collaboration that you’re not likely to miss in a crowd. Dominating our Instagram algorithms thanks to @carterwangchina, we’ve got a glimpse at what appears to be a Stüssy-fied LD 1000, donning a highlighter green exterior. Although official info regarding the release is still very much underwraps, we’re eager to get into the details – so continue reading for a closer look.

When it comes to collaborative resumes, the global streetwear label and athletic powerhouse are a force to be reckoned with. Just take a look at the Air Flight 89, Vandal, Air Penny or SB Blazer Low, and yes, the list really does go on. Introduced in the ‘70s, the Nike LD 1000 entered the scene as a running silhouette. However, its time came to an untimely end when runners were developing knee issues after sporting the kicks on the track. Sure, the flared heel might not have made the cut for performance purposes, but was still able to cultivate a considerable response from sneaker connoisseurs. Here to reclaim its legacy, Stüssy breathes new life into the LD 1000, and we’re here for it.

A Closer Look at the Stüssy x Nike LD 1000…

Boasting a neon green hue that you really couldn’t miss if you tried, the offering at hand flaunts a predominantly wide-mesh upper. Hits of distressed suede don a slightly different shade of green, bringing a pleasant tonal contrast. Black enters the exterior within the Swoosh, inner lining and underfoot, grounding the silhouette alongside a crisp EVA foam midsole.

In a stylish twist, Stüssy’s signature emblem graces the heel, trading the usual Nike insignia for a distinctive hit. Meanwhile, the tongue boasts the Californian-brand’s iconic hand-scrawled font, replacing the Swoosh’s customary proclamation of being “Engineered to the exact specifications of championship athletes.”

Word on sneaker street says the Stüssy x Nike LD 1000 could be arriving sometime in AUTUMN 2024 . While you await confirmation, find the link to all Stüssy x Nike release stockists via the banner below…
