Fresh off of September’s jewel Swoosh-ed Nike SB Dunk Low release, Supreme is continuing its collaborative offerings, linking up with longtime partner Vans for three new SK8-Hi Pros after dropping a collection with Fox Racing and Honda last week.
Arriving in an elegant black, a sporty navy/yellow, and a classic checkerboard/cream, the design is centered around a chaotic “Fuck The World” graphic embroidered on the lateral collar — one that was last seen printed on a long-sleeve T-shirt as part of the Supreme SS14 collection. Each pair is constructed of a timeless and durable mix of canvas/suede. A leather liner and shock-absorbent footbed provide premium fit and feel, while the branded detailing is furthered with a leather Jazz Stripe. White stitching on the upper offers contrast, and down below a classic white midsole, red heel badge, and signature vulcanized gum outsole complete the look.
2019 has certainly been busy for Vans and Supreme, as they already released “Diamond Plate” Sk8-Hi Pros and Slip-On Pros back in May. Before that, floral print-adorned iterations of the Chukka Pro and Era Pro served as two pieces of the extensive Supreme x Jean Paul Gaultier collection in April.
Possibly the most visceral offering from the New York and Anaheim-based brands this year, you can look for this three-pack of skate-ready high-tops to hit online and in-store in NY, Brooklyn, LA, London and Paris on October 10. Supreme’s Japanese retail locations and online store will release the trio two days later on October 12.
