Supreme x Nike. 20 Of Our Favorites.


Stylish sneakers have been universal in modern culture for generations, and no one can doubt the strength of Nike. Their Jordan series has caused longer lines than fuel pumps during a fuel shortage, and more envy that someone eating an In-n-Out burger in a 3rd world country. ‘Supreme’ on the same hand, has dominated streetwear culture to the point where they sell ‘Supreme’ crow bars (thats not a joke). Below is a BRILLIANT assessment of ‘Supreme’ by Hasan Minaj on his show “Patriot Act” (which we highly recommend watching if you have Netflix). After that though, we’ll get into some of the greatest collaborations between Nike and Supreme that feet have ever been in.

So now that we know the power of ‘Supreme’ (if you watched the entire episode), its important to know what a collaborative effort with Nike would do to consumers. Non-experts in streetwear and sneaker-heads alike would have no choice but to fawn over some of the 20 sneakers in the list below. Let us know which ones YOU think are the dopest, and, if your picks aren’t on the list (curated by Complex), let us know which ones are to your highest of likings.

Supreme x Nike SB Bruin

For its 2009 collaboration with Nike SB, Supreme offered up four colorways of the Bruin. Metallic Swooshes and “World Famous” branding on the heel made the pairs stand out from the average release of the low-top skate shoe. Some color schemes were better than others, but the project doesn’t necessarily do anything wrong either. For a Supreme collab that’s a little more under the radar, this might be the one to go with.


Supreme x Nike SB Blazer

Back in 2006, Supreme released three colorways of the Nike SB Blazer with a luxurious twist. Black, red, and white options were all available that each featured premium details like quilted leather uppers, python skin Swooshes, and gold metal detailing. But the highlight has to be the Gucci-inspired, red and green-striped heel tab. Over a decade later and these still hold up perfectly. Good luck finding a pair in good condition for a fair price though.


Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Low (Third Release)

What a disappointment. Supreme’s past work on the SB Dunk Low has been the stuff of legend, but this trio is FAR from that. I mean a Jewel Swoosh on a Dunk, it’s just not natural. Throw that Dallas Cowboys looking star onto the side of each pair and some wonky color blocking and what you’re left with is a mess.


Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Hi

There was a chance this sneaker would come in second on this list, but got narrowly edged out. Three colorways—orange, red, blue—all good. The stars on the side panel and the lacelocks both added to the sneaker. Loud? Sure, but it was perfect for Supreme and the era that the shoe gained life in.


Supreme x Nike Air Force 1 (Box Logo)

Whether you want to admit it or not, part of the allure of any Supreme collab has always been its limited nature. If you miss out on Thursday morning then it’s time to hit the aftermarket. That has always been the case, at least it was until 2020’s Air Force 1 drop. Initially met with some apprehension for its “lazy” design, it’s just some white and black Forces with a mini red Box Logo stamped on the lateral heel, customers warmed up to the idea once they’d been presented with all of the details. It was announced that both colorways would be sporadically replenished from season to season. Suddenly, Hanes T-shirts and boxers weren’t the only Supreme items you could re-up on. Make sure you add a fresh pair of Uptowns to the cart too.


Supreme x Nike Air Foamposite One

The Supreme x Nike Air Foamposite One makes this list mainly because of the hype around it. Personally? Could care less for the shoe. But many were surprised 1) That this shoe was real and 2) That it caused a literal riot with police cars in New York City. Most memorably, this was the sneaker that forever had in-store Supreme x Nike releases canceled.


Supreme x Nike Air Force 1 HI

This is the first sneaker to release after the Foamposite caused Nike releases to be cancelled at the brand’s Manhattan shop. The formula was simple: An Air Force 1 Hi in white, red, and black with Supreme’s branding on the strap. Easy enough. And they were pretty good. Resale is quite high at the moment, too.


Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Low (Fourth Release)

Following a lukewarm offering in 2019, Supreme decided to nod to one of its most celebrated projects for its latest Nike SB collab. The result is four colorways of the SB Dunk Low that share details with its 2003 SB Dunk High release like colorful croc leather overlays and gold stars covering the quarter panel. The source material helped define an era of sneakers. The 2021 project, while nostalgic, doesn’t hit quite the same despite being one of Supreme’s better offerings in recent years. The brown option feels very appropriate given current trends, but other options like a loud slime green don’t quite hit the mark like the originals did 18 years ago.


Supreme x Nike Air Force 1

It’s hard to imagine a time when Supreme didn’t have its own Air Force 1, but it really wasn’t that long ago. The brand got its hands on the model for the first time in 2012, opting to work on the low-top variation of the sneaker. It came in gum-soled black, olive, and woodland camouflage colorways which were elevated through the use of authentic NYCO military fabric. The brand would later work on the Air Force 1 High and team with Comme des Garçons for various Air Force 1 Lows, but the OG still remains one of the best.


Supreme x Air Jordan V

In Supreme’s illustrious collaborative footwear history, the iconic skate brand has only teamed up with the Jordan Brand twice. One of those times the product came out really good, the other time it simply came out really bad. Having featured the really bad one earlier on, it’s time to focus on the positives. Available in three colorways you have the option to make a statement with the bold Desert Camo or keep it nice and simple with White or Black.


Supreme x Nike Cross Trainer Low

Supreme followed its usual rule of thumb with this one by collaborating with Nike on a silhouette that nobody would expect them to. Sometimes that formula yields surprisngly good results. This two-pack of Cross Trainer Lows is not one of those times, though. This is simply just one of those shoes that looks like it would be more at home on the shoe wall of a Finish Line in the mall than it would coming from the biggest streetwear brand in the world. Neither colorway is particularly offensive, but they don’t feel all that special either. Couple that with the much better collabs sprinkled throughout Supreme’s extensive archive of Nike projects and it lands this one in the bottom tier.


Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Low (Second Release)

Elephant print on the Nike SB Dunk Low just looks good. These don’t hold a candle to the original pairs, but it was still awesome to see Supreme bring back one of the biggest projects from its archive in a new way so many years later. If you still like bright red sneakers and want to shell out a little less money for a well-executed Supreme Dunk Low collab, this is the shoe for you.


Supreme x Nike SB Gato

Nike SB has a long history of using football shoes to make skate shoes. Look at the Zoom FC. The Gato is also a shoe that saw some play over the years. Supreme did the shoe, too. It’s not bad. But I’m from the school of thought where you don’t wear football shoes unless you’re playing football. So it misses the mark.


Supreme x Comme des Garcons x Nike Air Force 1

The first Supreme x Comme des Garcons Air Force 1 wasn’t good. This shoe, with its split design, is infinitely better.


Supreme x Nike Air Force 1 Mid

Sneakers are an obvious staple of sports teams, so why not make the sports teams the focal point of the kicks?


Supreme x Comme des Garcons x Nike Air Force 1

People are going to like it because it’s a Comme des Garcons collab with Supreme on Air Force 1. What it really is: A white/white Air Force 1 with something screen printed on the side. Rushed and poor product. But the names sell it to hype fuck lords. And NBA players.


Supreme x Nike SB Air Force 2

Any time you’re starting with an Air Force 2 instead of an Air Force 1 [Ed. note: I don’t agree with him at all], you’re already behind the 8 ball. Four colorways of this AF2 hit the market in 2017 including three jarring candy-pack looking creations that left a lot to be desired. The fourth and final “Baroque Brown” pair was a bit less offensive but is still considered a brick in the Supreme x Nike department if you ask me.


Supreme x Nike SB 94

This is the only time Supreme has gotten to design its own Nike silhouette. The outcome? Not so hot.


Supreme x Nike SB Delta Force 3/4

This is one of the more slept-on Supreme x Nike releases. In fact, some could have the case that this should be ranked higher. The colorways aren’t hype, but solid. Same with the silhouette, the Delta Force SB ¾.


Supreme x Nike SB 94 (Second Release)

Although these may not be the most spectacular to round out the 20, they are some of the most unique concept kicks that Nike and Supreme have sprung.

Microsoft Making A Smartwatch


microsoft_smartwatch_01

As Apple continue to hire talent to work on their supposed “iWatch” project, Microsoft are rumored to already be planning to retaliate with a smartwatch of their own. Several weeks back it was reported that Microsoft placed orders for 1.5″ screens and now trusted sources have told AmongTech that the smartwatch is already being used as prototype and will be available in a variety of colors – blue, red, yellow, black, white, and grey. The outside housing will be made from Oxynitride Aluminium – a type of aluminium that is 80% transparent and four times harder than glass. The source also said that the device will include an adapted version of Windows 8 and will work with Cloud storage (plus 6GB internal storage) and 4G LTE. If the rumors turn out to be true, expect this to be unveiled sometime in late 2014.

Pool Party


a916b68ceed0e60d456f0eb843f9f036 0f5dac676f853e4d1f77e1dfce3192fa

Pools are not exactly the most projection ready surface, and initial brainstorms produced many more challenges than this team had anticipated. In researching a solution, they had to overcome the fact that projection doesn’t work on the surface of water, it becomes distorted if you project through it, and pool parties are notorious for more standing than swimming. Most people reacted as any any normal person would, and promptly put in and order for 65,000 ping pong balls, enough to cover the entire surface of the pool. To go with their new screen, they created an application which mapped to the pool and displayed a floating river of graphics, pulled by an invisible tide. Audio reactive visuals bumped along with the various dj’s and musical acts taking place poolside. The tactile quality of swimming through ping pong balls, combined with animated colors and light created an interactive event worth telling stories about.

Lumenworks – Rainbow Star.


About a month ago, I had the pleasure of receiving the Rainbow Star Cutey by Lumenworks. I have a major weakness for groovy lighting, especially ones that change colors. This sweet little beast of a light is a smaller version to Lumenworks Rainbow Star light. Its base is made of metal and the transparent acrylic top is the icing on the cake for this little beauty. When I plugged it in the first time, I made sure that I was in a dark room where no light could enter in. The treat I received once the Rainbow Star Cutey started its rotation of colors left me relaxed and oddly enough, feeling quite cheerful. I couldn’t wait for the rest of my family to take part in this delightful eye treat. Needless to say, I have become quite addicted to its soothing effects and when I want to just chill and release the stresses of the day, I turn off the lights and turn on the Cutey. Not only would this little jewel be good for mellowing out, but put on some lively music, dim the lights just a hair and liven the ambiance of your party.

AIAIAI x WESC Headphones.


In days gone by, headphones were the size of half-a-head and blocked out the entire outside world. The audio was amazing but you sweated profusely because of the generous foam padding… And you looked idiotic.  Through several mutations, we then ended up at the other extreme, with minuscule earbuds that nearly vanished in your ear — and you still looked dorky.

Now, we have moved on to “audio fashion wear” that combines the best of all worlds. Copenhagen’s AIAIAI with its design partners at Kilo has come up with stylish, light-weight Tracks Headphone Series that combines toned-down nostalgic looks with superior sound quality.  A leather version of Tracks, in natural and black, is apparently in the works as well.
