If you’re a sneakerhead or you’re a fan of streetwear brands, then Stussy definitely needs no introduction. At this point, it’s even considered the mother of streetwear brands. In case you don’t know, Shawn Stussy is the one who brought streetwear into existence. And his journey started by literally selling tees with “Stussy” graphics on them from the trunk of his car. Fast forward to today, Stussy’s leaving behind a string of epic collaborations, which includes the partnership with Nike that dates back to the year 2000! 23 years later, the collab is still going as strong as ever as the duo will be dropping the Stussy Air Flight 89 this December! So, let’s see what this drop is all about.

Nike Stussy Air Flight 89
So, the new Nike Stussy Air Flight 89 pack drops as a celebration of the 35th anniversary of the Nike Air Flight 89. And if you’re a fan of Air Jordan 4s, then these kicks are what you’ve been looking for. Because Air Flight 89s took their inspiration from the 4s.
These kicks come in 3 different color schemes: White – Habanero Red – Sail, Black – White, and White – Pecan. They basically feature leather uppers with perforations on the toe boxes for extra breathability, and AIR Stussy brandings on the tongues. However, the most eye-catching features these kicks got are the fake snakeskin overlays on the sides and AJ4-like visible Air units.
NOTE: Up till now, we only have official images of the Habanero Red Stussy Air Flight 89 pair (scroll down to check them out). So, keep it locked on our blog and Instagram @aiobot for more updates soon!
Off to the part that matters the most! The Stussy Air Flight 89 is set to drop on December 8th, 2023 at Stüssy’s online store, select Dover Street Market stores, and probably Nike SNKRS. It will also retail for $160. So, make sure you start learning the ground rules of sneaker copping so you can master your copping skills up untill drop day comes.
