There’s no denying the original Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Low, in both white and black cement forms, belong in the pantheon of all SB sneakers. First released back in 2002, there were no lines to get a pair and they only cost $65. With a rebellious attitude, they took one of the most iconic prints from the basketball world (the elephant print from the Air Jordan 3) and applied it to a division of Nike that had just been born (SB). The collaboration kicked off and fueled the love and collective spirit for the SB Dunk Low that is once again in full swing. Building on the momentum in 2003, the duo reimagined the Dunk High silhouette with a custom lace lock, debossed croc, and the gold star pattern on the mid panel – a world famous design for sure.
Now, nearly two decades later, Supreme and Nike SB once again give a new generation a taste of their rich collaborative history. Using the design elements from the Dunk High and applying it to the Dunk Low silhouette, four colorways of the sneaker will be released this week. Embodying its predecessors, this variation sees the return of the fat tongue, debossed croc with a leather upper, and the painted golden star graphic on the side panels. Thanks to new technology, Zoom Air is placed in the heel for a more comfy feel while a Supreme lace lock in gold and Nike branded tongue tag makes sure everyone sees your fire new sneakers.
Whether you’re trying to cop the black, blue, brown or green pair, these will all be exclusively sold at Supreme locations around the world and online via supremenewyork.com/shop. Supreme New York, Brooklyn, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London and Paris will release the sneakers on March 4.
