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.

New York-based Supreme gained its recognition with Nike heads with its collaborations with its SB line, beginning in 2003 with two different low-top Dunks. Since then, Nike SB and Supreme have teamed up to produce some of the most memorable colorways of the entire line, and in 2010, Supreme was rewarded with its own sneaker. On top of choosing its own colorways, Nike SB and Supreme teamed up on a brand new model known as the Nike SB ’94, denoting Supreme’s birth year. After four great colorways were released late last year, not much more was heard regarding the ’94, until we saw a look at the ‘Nubuck’ colorways; a classic tan/wheat nubuck colorway as well as a black colorway. Keynote details of the SB ’94 ‘Nubuck’ is the season-specific colorways and materials as well as the funky Foamposite heel-counter – something you don’t often see on Nike SB shoes. Both colorways are slated for a release this Thursday, November 10th in-store and online at Supreme flagship stores in New York, Los Angeles, and London, and on November 12th in Japan. We’ve got a detailed set of images below so take a look and let us know what you think.
