Supreme welcomes its latest collaboration with Nike SB as we see the introduction of a new silhouette to the SB roster, the ’94. Taking hints from styles of the ’90s, the Jordan-inspired kicks feature a high top, basketball-esque upper and foamposite material on the heel. These will be available in four different colorways including black, green, burgundy and navy. A release is expected in November 2010. Offered below is further insight into the project:
Our main thought was to create a newer version of shoes that New York skaters would have appropriated before there were real skate shoes, and combine that with other iconic basketball shoes from the time,” says Luke Meier, the lead designer on all Supreme SB collaborations. Foamposite material on the heel sets this shoe apart, and lines that pay homage to the classic Jordans give the silhouette a timeless feel, but the final result is anything but derivative. The new Supreme shoe is truly a city skate shoe: slimmed-up and clean enough to look presentable, but poppy enough to rock in the street. Welcome back to NYC.
