New York skate giants Supreme owe quite a bit of their reputation to classic basketball designs. The red box logo became a household institution when ‘Preme collaborated with Nike SB back in 2003 on a duo of Dunk Low Pros, those pairs adding even more ’80s b-ball backstory thanks to the Air Jordan III’s signature elephant print. So that the Supreme x Nike SB ’94 ended up looking like an old school baller is no great shock, but this design is still sufficiently different from everything else Swoosh skateboarding offers that they still feel like something out of left field. Wheat and black pairs go the tonal route with their Foamposite heel cups but both utilize gum soles, and are available now at the Supreme flagship stores along with select sizes online.
