Last year it was reported that Supreme’s upcoming Nike collaboration would in some shape or fashion include the NBA. Today those rumors are confirmed with a preview of the Supreme x Nike Air Force 1 Mid collaboration.
Covered with all 30 NBA logos across black and white Air Force 1 Mids, the aesthetic is extremely ’90s and, like many things in fashion today, closely mimics counterfeit pieces from decades past. Similar to Louis Vuitton’s last collection, which odes to Harlem-based Dapper Dan’s handmade counterfeit gems of yesteryear, this upcoming Supreme x Nike partnership looks like something that once filled discount bins and the shelves at flea markets and swap meets. Reebok also attempted this look back in the early 2000’s and many a rapper donned NBA logo jackets of a similar volition.
The Supreme x Nike Air Force 1 Mid is slated to release something this spring. Grab a first look below.
