Coming off of the collaboration with Nike on the old school Tailwind IV silhouette, Supreme continues its footwear collaborations with the next Vans drop, this time focusing on a quintessentially urban design.
The duo are set to release the Spring/Summer 2019 Supreme x Vans collection with the “Diamond Plate” all-over pattern across the Sk8-Hi Pro and Slip-On Pro models. The high-top features suede panels and canvas uppers for durability, while the leather lining adds a premium feel that coincides with the Pro denomination. The Slip-On Pro as well features the canvas upper, leather interior and diamond plate print across the entire shoe. Lastly, white details (Vans stripe, brand tag) match the white midsole.
Color-wise, both models arrive in yellow, red, and white iterations, with the Sk8-Hi Pro having a contrasting suede panel in brown, navy, and black, respectively.
The last Supreme x Vans collaboration came with Jean Paul Gaultier’s floral-based collection of pieces, while the Fall/Winter 2018 partnership had Supreme work on the Sid Pro model. The former was a bit louder and made more of a statement, while the latter gave skaters and lifestyle sneakerheads a bit of subtlety. This season’s iteration is thus a mix of both, with the pattern and fairly subdued “Supreme” branding speaking for themselves.
Both the Supreme x Vans Sk8-Hi Pro and Slip-On Pro will hit online and in-store in NY, Brooklyn, LA, London and Paris on May 9. Japan Supreme brick and mortars and its online store will receive their stock on May 11.
Last week, Supreme collaborated with Japanese visual artist Sekintani La Norihiro on a capsule of apparel and skate decks.
