Stussy has been one of 2012’s most prolific collaborators, extending their creative influence to a variety of brands, genres and models. The latest effort brings along a Japanese streetwear mainstay and French horse racing themes to give one of New Balance’s surging collabo canvases another masterful new release. The Stussy x HECTIC x New Balance ML999 ‘Selle Francis’ has plenty of connections, whether you follow the 999 thread or check back over the vast HECTIC x NB history, which has also on many occasions included Stussy. What’s common to them all is premium craftsmanship, and this pair goes for all-suede, even opting for a perforated cut instead of the classic mesh ventilation, which adds an air of casual luxury. Saturday, December 15th is the release date, and we’ve got a new set of images to share with you after the jump.
