Nike Skateboarding teams up with streetwear/skate giant Supreme once again, rejuvenating a classic tennis shoe with luxurious materials and upgraded construction. Originally named the “Wimbledon”, the Tennis Classic vamped up in the 80’s with the addition of a cup sole, and again in 2005 when Nike added Zoom Air to make it skate-ready. Nike and Supreme bring back the Tennis Classic with high-quality premium leather uppers and snakeskin-like pint on the heel and ankle collar of the shoe in four exciting color-combos as well as Supreme branding on the tongue, heel, and insole. The Supreme x Nike SB Tennis Classic will release on Thursday, April 25th both in-store and online, with a later release on the 27th at the Japan location, so take a look at the gallery below for a better look.
