Gary Warnett, renowned sneaker enthusiast and journalist, sadly passed away in September of 2017 from an unexpected illness. Among the many tributes, Supreme created a special box logo tee in honor of Warnett’s legacy. In light of Warnett’s 40th birthday on May 21, Nike created a unique Air Span with “GW” stamped on the side. See the sample below:

40 pairs of these distinct Air Spans were created to commemorate Warnett’s birthday, with the Air Span selected because it was a favorite of Warnett’s father. They were most likely distributed to friends and family of Warnett and certainly won’t see general release.
