In the history of Nike Dunk collaborations, few outfits can compare themselves to Supreme‘s catalogue. Since its first set of elephant-printed takes on the SB Dunk Low released in 2002, Supreme has gone on to produce some of the most notable SB Dunk collaborations of all time — SB Dunk Highs in 2003, plus more SB Dunk Lows in 2012, 2019 and 2021, to be specific — and now the New York-based outfit is adding another chapter to their collaborative SB Dunk lexicon as images of a SB Dunk High “By Any Means” sample have been revealed.

Rife with signature Supreme and Swoosh iconography and boasting a crisp two-tone color scheme that combines black and white leather, the shoe offers an in-your-face branded look akin to the Supreme x Nike Air Force 1 High from 2014 and repurposing details from a 2008 New Era collaboration. The most notable branded embellishment is a special version of Supreme’s “By Any Means” hit on the heel that works in the “NY” from the John Jay-designed Nike NYC logo. Apart from this, there’s an altered version of Milton Glaser‘s “I <3 New York" hit on the forefoot overlay that reads "No <3," a varsity-style "Supreme Team" hit on the heel and a hybrid "Sup" graphic on the tongue that once again repurposes John Jay's Nike NYC logo. A final detail is served by "World Famous" hits on the lace tips.

After images leaked, there was some debate over whether this style was indeed an SB Dunk or if it was Nike Sportswear‘s Dunk High. However, according to leaked.sneaks, the Instagram account that originally posted the photos, the style does feature SB insoles and has SB branding “somewhere else on the shoe.” Of note is that Supreme has only made one non-SB Dunk before, an unreleased style from 2017 that was reportedly a friends and family pair.

At the time of writing, no official release information has been made available. However, the Supreme x Nike SB Dunk High “By Any Means” may well drop later this year in multiple colorways — and possibly even be accompanied by a new New Era cap collaboration.
