Since its recent inception into the Air Force 1, Supreme models have created a more contemporary styling for the 25+ year old sneaker. The use of a visible air bubble has often been the distinguishing factor on Nike’s more expensive and higher performing models from its more economical models. But over the years, the popularity of the AF1 has shown that the AF1s original design was popular enough to sustain such strong interest. This upcoming release from AF1 features a colorway similar to the Nike Orca Pack of Dunks released a few years back with a similar albeit flipped use of black and white. No word yet on an official release from Nike.
