The origins of sneakers Supreme Nike
Supremewhose father is James Jebbia, was born in 1994 on Lafayette Street in New York. At the time, the brand's image was very much oriented towards skateboarders. In fact, most of the sales clerks were skateboarders or street artists. Although discreet, the Supreme brand quickly became a success, making eye contact with the sneaker giant, which even back then was known as Nike. And in 2002, when the brand with the swoosh conceptualized the Nike Skateboarding range, nicknamed Nike SB, it seemed obvious for Nike to call on Supreme. The latter, attracted by the idea of a possible collaboration with Nike, readily agreed to take part in the project. The SB range was launched in 2002, with the Nike Dunk Low Pro SB Supreme White and the Black Cement topping the bill. And while today the Elephant Print worn by the first SBs has become commonplace, Hatfield's signature pattern had only been seen once before it appeared on Nike SBs. Indeed, only the Jordan 3 had dared this bold design. And it was by reusing the Elephant Print that Nike and Supreme brought NYC's love of skateboarding to Jordan.
The Nike Supreme sneakers quickly became a sensation in the city that never sleeps, and later around the world. On the strength of this first victory, the two streetwear giants quickly decided to bring new silhouettes to life, some of which are listed below.
The best sneakers Nike in collaboration with Supreme
Air Force 1 Supreme
To open the ball, let's start by describing the very famous Air Force 1 Supreme White. Taking up the codes of the traditional Nike Air Force, the Supreme Nike Air Force 1 features the Supreme branding on the back of the sneaker and on the laces. The two Supreme elements are tinted a petulant red, a reasonable break with the immaculate appearance of the Air Force 1 Supreme. By the way, we love the original look of Nike AF1 Supreme, insofar as they have not been denatured by the New York brand Supreme.
Air Max TN Supreme
We now move on to the Air Max Plus Supreme Black, which offer a major makeover of the classic Nike TN, at least in terms of color. For example, while the Air Max TN Noir has a totally black look, the sneakers by Supreme come in bright colors ranging from pink to red, with yellow present to a lesser extent. The colorful features of this Air Max TN Supreme are highlighted by what appears to be a neon light, represented by a slight gradation of red, emanating from the TN's motifs. The final touch is embodied by the yellow Nike branding that stands out from the TN Supreme quarter panel. The release of the Air Max Supreme models was eagerly awaited not only on the website, but also in front of the Supreme store in Paris, and in London.
Nike Dunk Supreme
We close this small selection with the Nike SB Dunk High Supreme By Any Means Navy. This high-top version of the Dunk Supreme takes a leap back in time, referencing the Supreme By Any Means range from 2008. The Supreme sneaker, created in collaboration with Nike, features a navy and red leather upper, adorned with a few whimsical embroidered details. Note that when this Dunk High Supreme was released, two other iterations appeared in different colorways: the Nike SB Dunk High Supreme By Any Means Brazil and the Nike SB Dunk High Supreme By Any Means Black.
How much will Supreme Nike shoes cost in 2023?
Supreme being both a trendy and high-end brand, it will be offering Nike Supreme sneakers at prices that may seem high, but are nevertheless justified by the quality of the sneakers and their rarity. In fact, all the models originally released by Supreme and distributors were sold out within seconds of their release. As a result, you will only be able to find Supreme Nike sneakers for sale on sneaker resale sites such as Limited Resell or specialized retail stores. Depending on size and model, Supreme x Nike sneakers are priced between €250 and €350 on average, but some of the more limited models in the collection can cost up to €2,500.
