This OG Supreme x Nike sneaker was definitely the first shoe to really open up my eyes to the “sneakerhead” world. Sure, we all beasted over Js and Uptowns in middle school, but it wasn’t until I discovered the online sneaker community that I truly become OBSESSED. I didn’t realize it at the time but OG skaters from NYC actually skated in the original pairs, released 10 years ago. I can’t find the exact part but there’s an old 411 video clip of Harold Hunter tearing it up in the OG Supreme dunks (RIP). And this was way before skateboarding became accepted in Hip-Hop on a mainstream level. Actually, I got made fun of a lot for wearing Wu-Wear and DC shoes at the same damn time (about ’96-’97).
Anyway, this coming Thursday (July 19) , Supreme will be releasing a new colorways of the famed Supreme Dunks. The historic New York skate brand, Supreme, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary of the shoe and will drop the first pairs at their LA, NYC, and London locations, also online. Japanese fanatics will get their chance to cop on July 21. Of course, supplies are extremely limited, so unless you plan on starting to camp out starting today, resellers are your only hope.
