Stüssy Shoe Collaborations Through the Years: Nike, Dr. Martens, Clarks and More

In 1982, Shawn Stüssy accidentally entered the fashion space when he wrote his small California-based surfboard company’s logo on a T-shirt. Now, 40 years later, his brand has become one of the founding members of the streetwear trend. His brand has expanded all over the world with Stüssy Chapter stores in the biggest cities like New York, London, Sydney, Milan and Singapore. The company’s laid-back aesthetic has become the inspiration for so many designers to start their own streetwear companies like X-Large, Freshjive and Phat Farm.

The free-spirited brand has diversified to reach every part of the apparel space, including outerwear and accessories. Although Stüssy has not entered the footwear space independently, the company has still influenced the space with its collaborations over the years. The brand has created noteworthy collections with top brands like Nike, Converse, Dr. Martens and more.
