The Air Force 1 sneaker Supreme
Supremefounded by James Jebbia, first appeared on Lafayette Street in New York in 1994. At the time, the brand was very focused. Indeed, Supreme was first and foremost a clothing line designed for skateboarding. In fact, the in-store sales staff were mostly skateboarding enthusiasts. Even if Mr. Jebbia's label was rather discreet in its early days, the Supreme brand soon met with success, and was noticed by sneaker giant Nike, best known for its Air Force 1 shoe.
In 2002, the brand with the swoosh conceptualized its first series of sneakers designed for skateboarding: the Nike Skateboarding range (or Nike SB). So it was a no-brainer for Nike to enlist the help of Supreme, skaters' new favorite brand. The latter was persuaded and readily agreed to contribute to the project, especially as it was an opportunity to propel Supreme to the forefront of the skateboarding scene. It was against this backdrop that the SB range was launched in 2002, with the Nike Dunk Low Pro SB Supreme White and the Black Cement. Success quickly lived up to expectations: the Nike Supreme sneakers became a sensation in the USA and, later, the world over. Following this initial success, the two streetwear icons decided to continue working together. Since then, dozens of sneakers from the collab' have appeared, including the famous Air Force 1 Supreme, which we'll be taking a closer look at in this category.
Appearance of the first AF1 sneaker Supreme by Nike
It was in 2018 that the first Supreme Air Force 1 sneakers were released. This was a high-top version of theAir Force 1.
At the start of 2020, Supreme had already made our mouths water by revealing some official images of its collaboration with Nike in a low-profile version of the AF1 silhouette. It was in early March 2020 that the suspense came to an end, when Supreme and Nike released their first pair of Air Force One Low Supreme . The new sneaker, which joins the famous Air Force 1 range, offers a very streamlined style. Indeed, the first AF1 Supreme takes up the codes of the traditional Air Force One: a leather base and a large side swoosh. The difference lies mainly in the branding: a Supreme logo box is placed on the heel, and laces with the Supreme logo adorn the upper of the sneaker. When the Nike Air Force 1 Supreme was released, it came in two colorways: the top-selling white version, the Air Force 1 Supreme White, and the black version, the AF1 Supreme Black.
The Air Force 1 Supreme White
To open the ball, let's start by painting a portrait of the inescapable Air Force 1 Supreme White, already mentioned in the paragraph above. Based on the lines of the traditional Nike Air Force , the Supreme Nike Air Force 1 features Supreme branding on the heel and laces. The two Supreme details are tinted a bright red, a fitting contrast to the immaculate, very neutral appearance of the Air Force 1 Supreme. In this respect, we particularly appreciate the conservative aspect of Nike AF1 Supreme: in fact, they have not been altered in any way by the New York brand Supreme.
The Nike Air Force 1 Low Black model Supreme
The black Air Force 1 Supreme , like the white version, offers a very classic style. The Supreme sneaker features a black leather base, a black side swoosh and a black sole. There are a few colorful touches: the red Supreme box logo, again on the heel, and black and white branded laces. In short, thanks to its muted, neutral and elegant black, the Supreme sneakers can easily be worn with everything!
The collaboration between Supreme, the NBA and Nike (Air Force 1)
The whiteAir Force One NBA is quite original: with its high-top structure, scratch collar and NBA flocking, this new Air Force promises to please NBA fans. As for the sneaker's materials, we're sticking with traditional white leather. The Nike branding, as usual, can be found on the shoe's quarter panel. The Supreme logo can be found on the toebox of the Air Force 1 NBA, and on the velcro of the shoe in a university-style font. The supreme sneaker is also unique in that it features the emblems of various NBA teams, including the logos of the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls. The Air Force 1 NBA Supreme Black is also available for black fans!
