It’s been quite the week for Supreme and
Croc leather mudguards, eyestays, heel pieces/tabs and Swooshes are all swathed in this luxurious shade, and add a further touch of opulence with their high-gloss sheen. Between each of these pieces sit the white leather toeboxes, quarters and collar details. While the first and third of these areas are left unadorned, the second is swathed in a metallic gold star print, calling back to the design of Supreme and Nike SB‘s seminal SB Dunk High collection from 2003.
A blocky “SUPREME” lace deubre on the black laces provides an extra touch of luxury, and more gold appears up front on the puffy white tongue’s fabric tag and on the back — where it’s embroidered on the heel tab. Just like the other pairs, red insoles supply cut-off “SUP” and “EME” graphics while white midsoles and outsoles colored to match the upper complete the look. Each pair is also accompanied by a co-branded “World Famous” hangtag.
At the time of writing, a release date for the Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Low “Barkroot Brown” has yet to be announced. However, it’ll likely release as part of the brand’s forthcoming SS21 season alongside the aforementioned “Hyper Blue” and “Mean Green” colorways plus a “Black/White” style.
