Finishing off this week’s Classics Revisited focus on big-ticket collaborations is one between Nike Skateboarding and Supreme, dating back to 2004. While that combination of partners and time should equate to an instant classic, this Supreme x Nike SB collaboration is easily the most understated and perhaps under-appreciated of the Supreme x Nike catalog. At the focus is the now defunct Nike SB model known as the the Delta Force 3/4, derived from the mid-80’s basketball shoe; it was produced in three mono-chromatic colorways with some minute details that would go easily overlooked, like the workboot-inspired padded ankle collar, reflective tongue, gum outsoles, and off-colored lace eyelet. Strangely enough, all three releases of the Delta Forces can probably be purchased for under or close to the retail price, which is unheard of considering the spike in value of anything Supreme-tagged. All three are right below for review, so let us know if you have any of the three in your stash or if you can honestly admit that these were never on your radar.
