The Stüssy x Nike Vandal "Royal Blue" Finally Has a Release Date

June 5, 2023

With two more colorways coming very soon.

From cultural icons like the Air Force 1 and the Air Huarache, to underrated legends such as the Air Penny and the Air Zoom Spiridon, it's safe to say that Stüssy has worked on quite a few Nike silhouettes in its time, and now, it's adding another mythical pair to the list with the Stüssy x Nike Vandal "Royal Blue." A collaboration that has been on our radar since the end of last year, keep reading to find out what you need to know.

Reports of this collab first surfaced around November of 2022, and now, it's officially here. Taking on the '80s basketball model, Shawn Stussy's take boasts a hemp construction painted in a "Royal Blue" hue. An embroidered Nike Swoosh glides across the lateral and medial sidewalls, while the Californian streetwear label's signature 8-ball logo makes a cameo on the exposed foam tongue.

All of this sits on top of a crisp white midsole, and it's finished off with interchangeable Velcro ankle straps. While it comes with a stealthy one by default, you'll also find a tri-coloured version with the text "Stand Firm" written in Stüssy's psychedelic font.

The Stüssy x Nike Vandal "Royal Blue" is set to drop on June 9th, with a much wider Nike launch scheduled for June 15th. "Black" and "Fossil" pairs are also coming very soon, so keep it locked at Ox Street for your best chance to cop! In related news, the Jacquemus x Nike J Force 1 Low collection has finally been revealed!
