Supreme, that legendary institution of downtown skatewear in NYC, turns 20 years old this week. The shop has kept the anniversary fanfare to a relative minimum: they’ll be re-introducing the two tees that were available when they opened their doors back in 1994, but that’s it – there will be no blitz of hype anchored collabs, no special sneakers in sight, and no inkling that they’re all of a sudden going to start playing by the same rules that the rest of the industry does. We thought it fitting to give Supreme a bit more spotlight then that, and as a result they’re the focus of our latest Sneaker News NINE@NINE series.

For as long as they’ve been situated on Lafayette street, and eventually a handful of other spots across the globe, Supreme has been mixed up in sneaker culture. Long before boutiques existed and x’ed out sneakers were the norm, they were partnering with footwear companies that have been able to provide a logical extension of their aesthetic. The resulting catalog you’re no doubt familiar with – the Supreme Dunks, the various Vans that brought Comme des Garcons into the frame, the luxury SB Blazers, etc. But this compilation is about those that fell through the cracks, the lesser known and at times underrated Supreme sneakers from their two decade history. Continue on for our nine, and feel free to chime in via the comments if you’ve got some slept-on favorites of your own.
