Following its team-up with Fox Racing, Supreme has returned to reveal another collaboration with Nike. Accompanying this week’s Fall/Winter 2020 Week 8 Drop, the collaboration is centered around the popular Air Max Plus TN model that debuted back in 1998.
Designed by footwear veteran Sean McDowell, the shoe never-before-employed manufacturing techniques like sublimated upper treatment, thin welded TPU caging and of course the Tuned Air cushioning system. Launching with almost immediate international appeal, after more than two decades the silhouette still remains a cult favorite in New York, Paris, London and Down Under in Melbourne and Sydney.
Serving as the latest in Supreme’s long line of footwear collaborations with Nike, the upcoming Air Max Plus TN range created exclusively for the New York skate imprint features three distinct colorways. The takes on the footwear icon feature mesh uppers decorated with custom “SUPREME” logo TPU fingers on the sides accented by suede side and heel panels, and TPU toe caps. Aside from the contrasting Swoosh branding at the midfoot regions, mesh tongues are marked with raised TPU Supreme logos and Tuned Air markings at the heel and printed insoles. Elevating the shoe are polyurethane foam midsoles paired with Tuned Air assisted rubber outsoles with contrasting TPU shank plates.
Accompanying the collaborative footwear are matching Running Hats constructed of Nike’s proprietary Dri-FIT featherlight fabric. The printed side panels continue the custom “SUPREME” logo found on the shoes, while a 3D rubber badge celebrates the iconic TN marking. Subtle embroidered Swooshes at the rear and reflective printed adjustable straps ensure secure fits and serve to round up the design of the headwear.
The Supreme x Nike Air Max Plus FW20 collaboration will see a global release, with select pieces available via the streetwear imprint’s website October 15 in the United States and October 17 in Japan before hitting Nike SNKRS on October 22. It is important to note that the “White” colorway won’t arrive on the Supreme webstore until November.
