15. Supreme x Nike Foamposite
As one of the most popular Nike silhouettes in the USA, it was a big deal when Supreme picked the Foamposite for one of their collaborative sneakers. Supreme chose bold and bright baroque-looking patterns to adorn the outside of the sneaker, and it certainly made for an unforgettable and head-turning silhouette. Upon the release of these at Supreme’s Layafette location, the chaos of sneakerheads lining up to get a pair was so bad that NYPD actually ordered the release to be cancelled, and it was eventually an online release only.
14. Supreme x Dr Martens “Sacred Heart”
There aren’t many brands more renowned for making good quality boots than Dr Martens. They’re a British brand with a long history behind them, dating back to the mid 1900’s. Over the years, the brand became synonymous with alternative and punk culture, shooting them into the forefront of current trends. Supreme have collaborated with Dr Martens for many years now, offering their own take on classic silhouettes such as the classic six-eye boot and the three-eye Gibson. For their 2017 offering, the two brands created a low-top boot featuring traditional “Sacred Heart” imagery, and it was one of their best looking collaborations to date.
13. Supreme x Vans x Comme des Garçons (2014)
Continuing their long-running partnership, Supreme joined forces with Comme des Garçons once again in 2014. The duo released two silhouettes, the Sk8-Hi and the Era. The Sk8-Hi was adorned with imagery of the late and great Harold Hunter – a prolific NYC skater in his time. The Era opted for a pin-stripe design with a polka-dot heel panel. Both models also featured the trademark Supreme x CDG reversed box logo on the rear. They were a popular release at the time and sold out instantly, however pairs do still pop up occasionally on the resell market.
12. Supreme x Nike Air Force 1 Low
There’s no sneaker quite as iconic as the Air Force 1. It’s the model of choice for sneakerheads and fashion fans all around the world. By 2012, Supreme was no longer just a low key skate-brand, it was a global fashion phenomenon and an absolute powerhouse. Therefore, it was time for their first non-SB collaboration with Nike. Of course, they chose the Air Force 1. Three colourways released, camo, olive and black. The uppers were constructed of Cordura material allowing for a hard-wearing silhouette. The release sold out instantly and is still highly desirable amongst fans of the brand.
11. Supreme x Nike Blazer
The Nike Blazer has been used as skate shoe for many years, even though it was originally intended for use on the basketball court. Supreme chose the Blazer as the model of choice for their Nike collaboration in 2006. They gave it a luxury makeover, featuring leather uppers and gold detailing. It caused quite the stir in the streetwear/sneaker world, as it was the first Supreme collaboration to feature this kind of styling rather than the traditional skate shoe look. It’s still sought after by many currently, and resells for way above the original retail price.
10. Supreme x Timberland Field Boot
Another boot collaboration makes our list, however this time it’s with the just as coveted brand known as Timberland. Supreme have collaborated with Timberland multiple times, and generally the model of choice is the classic 6-Inch Boot. However in 2014 (and earlier in 2006), the brand chose the modernised Field Boot as the blank canvas for their collaborative project. The Field Boot is an updated version of the classic boot, and is suited for all conditions. Supreme branding is kept to the minimum, with just a small red box-logo featured on the upper of the shoe.
9. Supreme x Nike Air Jordan V
In 2015, Supreme shocked the world once again. A skateboard brand at heart, it was a bold move for them to chose an Air Jordan for their latest Nike collaboration. Of course, by this point the whole streetwear/sneaker scene was just as involved with Supreme as the skate scene, so the collaboration was greeted pleasantly. Three colourways released, black, white, and camo. Supreme “Sup” branding could be found embossed upon the upper of the shoe, and “94” branding was also featured, in reference to Supreme’s founding in 1994. The sneakers were an online only release across the whole of the US to avoid crazy crowds outside stores.
8. Supreme x Clarks Wallabee
Clarks is one of the most respected footwear brands on the planet, and are responsible for some of the most recognisable silhouettes ever. One of these said silhouettes is the Wallabee, a shoe that has been associated with streetwear culture since the very start. Supreme have always had a long running partnership with Clarks, and for their 2015 collaboration the duo decided to paint the Wallabee with a stand out two tone colour scheme. Four colourways released, black, green, red and purple. Clarks’ collaborations are always under appreciated by the younger Supreme crowd, however the OG’s never hesitate to cop.
7. Supreme x Nike Lunar 1+
During 2013, the Nike Flyknit was at it’s peak of popularity, and it was the model of choice for sneakerheads at the time, especially the Flyknit Trainer and Flyknit Runner. However, in typical Supreme fashion, the brand decided to go against the grain. They released a Flyknit Lunar 1+ – a less popular member of the Flyknit family. The sneaker featured “Sup” branding woven into the knitted upper and a small red box-logo on the tongue. Unusually, the shoes came packaged in a Nike SB box, as they were marketed as a joint project between Nike mainline and Nike SB.
6. Supreme x Vans x Peter Saville PCL (Power, Corruption, Lies)
2013 saw Supreme team up with Peter Saville to release a capsule collection featuring his “Power, Corruption, Lies” artwork. The artwork was famously created for the album cover of New Order’s eponymous album. The collection was incredibly successful and Vans also featured a T-shirt, hoodie, and a cruiser skate deck of the same design. The Sk8-Hi, Era and Chukka Boot all got the PCL treatment and it’s one of the most desirable Supreme x Vans collaborations of all time. Pairs pop up occasionally on the resell market, however brand new pairs demand pretty high sums of money.
5. Supreme x Vans x Playboy
Supreme launched their first collaboration with iconic gentleman’s magazine Playboy in 2011 – fast forward three years and the two have collaborated several times. Their latest team effort includes a three-way collaboration with Vans. Both the Sk8-Hi and the Authentic were given the bunny treatment and released in a range of colourways including black, white, red and green. The sneakers are highly sought after by collectors and resellers, similar to most of the Playboy collaborations, and they rarely become available via the resell market.
4. Supreme x Nike Air Max 98
With Supreme’s partnership with Nike still going strong, 2016 saw the duo take a new direction. Instead of releasing classic silhouettes such as skate shoes and Air Force 1’s, the brand decided to release an Air Max model, and not just that, a relatively unknown one. They chose the Air Max 98 – a sneaker that had seen limited releases in the past. It released in four colourways – snakeskin, black, navy and red, and proved extremely popular. With the exception of Asia, these were an online release only. Pairs still pop up frequently on the resell market, however as time goes on this will become less common, so if you’re after a pair we’d advise making your move sooner rather than later.
3. Supreme x Vans x Bruce Lee
In 2013, the box-logo brand launched a capsule collection in partnership with one of the greatest actors of all time, Mr. Bruce Lee himself. Alongside a series of apparel that was just as popular, Supreme also offered a three way collaboration with Vans. The Sk8-Hi and the Era were both given the treatment, depicting classic scenes from the 1973 classic “Enter the Dragon”. These are just as popular today as they were upon the original release, however finding an unworn pair could prove a challenge.
2. Supreme x Vans x Public Enemy
2006 was a crazy year for Supreme, as well as launching their webstore, the brand released two Sk8-Hi silhouettes in collaboration with legendary rap group Public Enemy. The upper of the sneakers featured the group’s signature crosshair logo and “It Takes a Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back” was inscribed upon the sidewall of the sneakers, referencing the hit album of the same name by Public Enemy. Only two colourways released – the black colourway and a black/yellow/red version. These are some of the most desirable Supreme Vans of all time, and rarely pop up on the market. You better have deep pockets if you’re after a pair too, as they don’t come cheap.
1. Supreme x Nike Dunk Low SB
2012 marked the tenth anniversary of Nike’s partnership with Supreme. To mark the occasion, the original silhouette that the two brands collaborated on was revisited. The Nike Dunk Low SB. The design was kept very similar to the original, with just slight differences. The clean red/black/white colourway was an instant head turner, and is recognisable to sneakerheads around the world. The Dunk was nowhere near as hyped in 2012 as it was back in 2002, but the release was still an enormous success and sold out instantly. This release is widely regarded as one of the greatest Supreme x Nike collaborations of all time.
