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.

Red Notice (Final Trailer).


When it comes to “buddy cop” team ups, there have been many iconic combinations throughout time. ‘Beverly Hills Cop’, ‘Rush Hour’ and ‘Bad Boys’ are three that we had to put on a list or else people would riot, but there are endless more. ‘Red Notice’ how ever has a unique task of putting 3 pop culture icons into the same film, and creating new characters from them. Dwayne Johnson, leads the film as a disgraced super cop, that has to clear his name… just like in ‘Hobbs and Shaw’. Ryan Reynolds is a quirky, smart mouthed who is highly skilled, and is just trying to do his job… just like in ‘The Body Guards Wife’. Finally Gal Gadot is an intelligent, masterful thief who uses her looks as well as her talent to get the job done without getting caught… just like her role in the ‘Furious 7’. SO, hopefully all these alumni of the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise (YES Ryan Reynolds was in Hobbs & Shaw, making him part of the “Fast Saga” as well.) can take rolls that they have fit into int the past, and hopefully create something memorable and new. The film is being released on Netflix only, but here to a big release, and even bigger numbers. Take a look at the final trailer below.

The Official (Live Action) ‘Cowboy Bebop’ Netflix Trailer.


Between Dave Chappelle’s ground breaking specials, ‘Squid Games’, and Australia’s ‘Why Are You Like This’, Netflix’s stock just keeps going up. This treasure trove of new content is only getting more interesting, especially with the addition of a live action rendition of ‘Cowboy Bebop’. There have been endless attempts at bringing Japans’ most popular anime shows or movies to live action with some blockbusters like ‘DragonBall’, ‘Alita: Battle Angel’, ‘Ghost In The Shell’, ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’, and ‘Speed Racer’. (Remember all of those well loved, wonderfully reviewed classics?). But in what seems to be the beginnings of a turn-around for Anime to live-action misadventures, ‘Cowboy Bebop’ seems to be an honest attempt at making this transition right. When taking a look at the first trailer for this experiment below, you can’t help but think to yourself… “This one actually looks pretty good.”

Is Dave Chappelle Cancelled?


By now, anyone with a special interest in controversy, comedy, Netflix, Dave Chappelle, or any of his recent specials, has heard of the controversy surrounding Dave Chappelle’s Netflix recent comedy special. (Yes the sentence was structured that was on purpose). But regardless of where you stand on the issues that “The Closer” brought up, it goes without saying that Chappelle is swimming against stream in regards to cancel culture. After some of the transgender members of the Netflix staff expressed their disgust in regards to the content of his $20 million dollar stand up set “The Closer”, the internet, and even CNN, was on fire with what people thought. In true Dave Chappelle fashion, he surprised people with a response, not only saying where he stood with Netflix employees holding him the crosshairs, but discussing his new documentary, and his 10 city comedy tour (that is already sold out). Check out just a clip of what he had to say for himself while he poses “Am I cancelled?” What do you think?

Jon Bernthal Gets Punished On Hot Ones.


Since its debut, Hot Ones has been an amazing look at celebs semi outside of their comfort zones, and answer questions while having their tastebuds burnt out. But seeing people playing against character is always quite refreshing. From seeing Kevin Hart loose control of his mouth to the point that he was almost drunk, to finding out that Stone Cold Steve Austin is actually quite a open and chatty kinda dude, many of the episodes show people in a light they are not normally under. Jon Bernthal is most known for playing Shane in ‘The Walking Dead’, or The Punisher on Netflix, but seeing him out of character, he’s quite an entertaining guy as it. Check out his interview with Hot Wings below.

Dave Chappelle is BACK. (again)… (AGAIN).


It started with “The Age Of Spin”, and has spun out of control from there with the resurgence of Dave Chappelle. He’s gone from Comedy Central show host to legend as soon as he quit the Chappelle show, and seemingly out of nowhere, his return rocked the comedy scene. The promotional ads for his newest Netflix special seem to ask the same question, how do you finish a run of HOURS of comedy that has been this prolific. Since Chappelle started his first special with Morgan Freeman narrating, comedy fans and audiences alike have been waiting for an epic conclusion while never wanting them to end at the same time. Take a look as some of the promos as you may be waiting anxiously for TOMORROW, October 5th, 2021. ‘The Closer’ can only be followed by the wait for whatever Chappelle decides to do next.

Jay-Z and Kid Cudi’s Are On ‘The Harder They Fall’ Trailer.


Netflix has just debuted a new trailer and poster for upcoming Western The Harder The Fall, featuring plenty of stylized wild west action from a truly dynamite cast. The footage kicks-off with “Treacherous” Trudy Smith (Regina King), Cherokee Bill (LaKeith Stanfield), and their gang busting leader Rufus Buck (Idris Elba) out of jail, and it doesn’t look like these guys have much interest in taking prisoners. From there, we’re introduced to fellow outlaw Nat Love (Jonathan Majors), who sets off with former flame Stagecoach Mary (Zazie Beetz), Jim Beckwourth (R.J. Cyler), and Bill Pickett (Edi Gathegi) to seek vengeance against the ruthless Buck. This modern spin on the Western genre features a primarily Black cast, and hails from director and producer Jeymes Samuel, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Boaz Yakin. Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, James Lassiter, and Lawrence Bender are on board as producers, and the all-star ensemble also includes Delroy Lindo, Damon Wayans Jr., Deon Cole, and Danielle Deadwyler. Check out the trailer below, which also features a tease of a new track from Jay-Z and Kid Cudi.

‘Iron Fist’ Officially Suits Up.


The marketing for the second season of Marvel’s Iron Fist has now kicked into high gear, as Danny Rand’s sophomore solo outing is set to hit Netflix early next month.  On the heels of the full trailer and a new poster, Netflix has debuted this banner which features Danny (Finn Jones) wearing his proto-Iron Fist costume. Though many fans would much rather see him jump straight into the classic comic outfit, Matt Murdock went through the same process in season 1 of Daredevil and everything worked out just fine. Granted, his all-black ensemble did look quite a bit cooler than this.

Bedrooms By The Tech-Giants?


It’s unlikely that companies like Apple or Facebook will ever foray into designing home interiors, but a little wishful thinking never hurt anybody. In this post we look at conceptual bedrooms, designed with the language and characteristics of 6 of today’s technology giants.  Right above is the conceptual Apple bedroom. Looking like someone cleared out an Apple Store and put a bed in there, there’s something very pure and pristine about the interiors. Undeniably Apple, right? Designed to look sensible and straightforward, the room comes with a white interior, a full sized window (or should we call it a bezel-less window?!), and even trees within glass enclosures. Elaborate, opulent, yet clean.

Right above is the conceptual Apple bedroom. Looking like someone cleared out an Apple Store and put a bed in there, there’s something very pure and pristine about the interiors. Undeniably Apple, right? Designed to look sensible and straightforward, the room comes with a white interior, a full sized window (or should we call it a bezel-less window?!), and even trees within glass enclosures. Elaborate, opulent, yet clean.  Then comes Facebook’s bedroom. Using blue to bring a fun-yet-not-garish vibe to the bedroom, the interiors make use of signature facebook elements, from FB reactions, to neon likes, wallpaper made of personalized messages on the left, to even a literal brick wall on the right that reminds you of the time when you “would write on peoples’ walls” on Facebook. Oh, and I love the cheeky wardrobe in the corner with the grey tees.

Everything about Google’s bedroom screams fun. Using Google’s brand colors and going completely nuts with the decor, the Google bedroom is more fun and vibrant than an environment conducive to sleep. Swing, slide, foosball table, and a literal faux grass playground, you’re much more likely to work from home in the Google bedroom.  The Netflix bedroom takes chilling very seriously. A TV with a home theater, stocked refrigerator, lounge-sofa, and a bed that looks oh-so-inviting, you’re bound to stay in bed and binge-watch your favorite shows. The interiors look quite like a theater with low-key lighting and the use of red gives it the signature Netflix flavor. Points if you notice the colorful lights near the window that do a hat-tip to Netflix’s Stranger Things.

Snapchat’s bedroom perfectly captures the whims and fancies of its young demographic. Ridiculously adolescent, the bedroom comes in Snapchat’s shade of yellow, balloons and streamers everywhere much like Snapchat’s flamboyant filters, and a hammock for a bed. Oh, there’s a photobooth too, given how Snapchat and selfies have such a strong relationship.  Lastly we have Spotify, a company so devoted to music that it makes sense the bedroom echoes that feeling too. With graphiti on the wall that literally screams MUSIC, wall-mounted records, a live-karaoke wall that displays lyrics (with 16 speakers on each side) complete with two microphones, and a light-up dance floor, the Spotify bedroom sets the perfect mood for a bedroom party. Besides, you can turn things down a notch too and bust out some sweet tunes as you head to the circular Spotify-logo-inspired bed.

 

The above 6 bedrooms do a pretty spot-on job (maybe too spot-on) of taking the ethos and characteristics of the 6 tech giants and translating them into spaces… a design exercise by the name of Product Semantics that we’ve covered in great detail in the past. There’s no guarantee that these spaces will ever exist, but it’s a wonderful design practice to familiarize oneself with brand languages, product languages, and learn how you can use them to make products (and in this case, spaces) look like they belong to a certain brand family. Hey designers, could we see a few more? Microsoft, Instagram, Whatsapp, Twitter, for starters?

Michael B. Jordan Will Be ‘Raising Dion’.


Netflix is doubling down on the superhero genre and they’re looking to tell original stories outside of their Marvel Netflix shows.  However, they’re turning to a Marvel Studios actor to spearhead their latest project.  Michael B. Jordan will co-star and executive produce a 10-episode series titled Raising Dion.The series will be based on a 2015 short film of the same name, which you can check out below.This short was created by music video director Dennis Liu (Sia – You’ve Changed, Justin Timberlake – Not A Bad Thing) who provided an official statement in a press release.

I started this project many years ago because I wanted to see more diverse representation on film and television and I’m excited to partner with Netflix and MACRO, who I know shares that commitment. More than ever, we need more stories told from different points of view and my hope with Raising Dion is to create a cinematic experience for all families that will lift your spirits and make you laugh and cry.

Take The First Look At Luke Cage.


luke-cage-head

The trailer below may not necessarily be the FIRST look at the mighty Luke Cage, seeing as we got watch him tear things up in Netflix’s Jessica Jones.  There was also a brief teaser of him tearing through a gang of thugs from Comic-Con 2016, which was amazing. This however is the first look at our hero, the story we’ll be getting in the series, and the world he’s be fighting through. So get your first expansive look into the new Luke Cage series.

Daredevil: Season 2, First Reviews.


131415

The first serious look at Daredevil was released a few days ago, however, the first set of reviews for the entire season are starting pour in… Much to no one’s surprise, they seem to be exceedingly positive.  That said, from the sounds of things some of the pacing issues and jarring tonal shifts that became an issue during the Man Without Fear’s first TV outing are also present – but for the most part these initial reactions are very positive.

As expected, Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle/The Punisher seems to have emerged as a highlight, with his take on the vicious vigilante being hailed as a brilliantly complex antagonist the same vein as Wilson Fisk. Another new character we haven’t seen as much of is Elektra, so fans should be very happy to hear that Elodie Yung is highly praised for her incarnation of the seductively skilled warrior in every review so far.

 

DJs! How About ‘Netflix’ for your favorite Vinyl Records?


mag-10Collector-t_CA0-superJumbo

Digital music sales have taken a dive, and meanwhile, vinyl is in the midst of a huge swell that probably won’t let up anytime soon. So what has 2015′s vinyl surge wrought? VYNL, or Netflix for records.

The service is pretty straightforward, although rather than picking particular albums you want to rent, a la Netflix, you select from VNYL’s categories—which are called #vibes. This is where it goes slightly adrift, but we’ll focus on the service because it’s a cool idea. Say you want #work or #danceparty or #betweenthesheets. You pick one of those and each month you get a pack of LPs to play. You can keep what you want for as low as 12 bucks a record, and send back what you’re not feeling at the end of the month.

It’s worth noting, though, that there are other similar services cropping up, such as Vinyl Me, Please, which costs $23-$27 a month. We haven’t tried either service, but the idea behind them seems like a good way to bulk up on vinyl if you’re just getting started And it’s a good thing to get into—probably the most worthwhile way to own music in a world of immediate but downgraded music downloads.

The Netflix Workout Guide.


Netflix

When writer Jessica Catcher put out her TV show workout guide via Mashable.com, we felt fit to add just a little bit to it.  Watching TV doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to be a couch potato.  If one were to simply watch their favorite shows, and do some workout exercises while the shows were on, in theory the more TV you watch, the more of a workout you’d get.  Check out our improved list of Netflix shows that could give you some of the best workouts by just following a few simple rules.  Much like a drinking game, when something specific happens, you have a few actions to do… the more you watch, the better workout you get.
