Let’s not put too effective a degree on it: it’s a wonderful week for covetable sneaker collaborations. Palace Skateboards and Supreme—in nearly any estimation the most popular skate corporations on the planet—each have envy-inducing kicks on deck. Palace Skateboards has teamed up with French footwear label Salomon whereas Supreme and Nike Skateboarding have reworked a basic silhouette. Every sneaker is vastly totally different from the opposite, however each are certain to resonate with streetwear followers information and outdated.
Let’s begin with the European connection. Palace Skateboards and Salomon aren’t any strangers. Final 12 months, the eccentric British model launched a Jurgen Teller-shot lookbook that featured Salomon’s famously high-tech, mountain-friendly footwear. Now, the 2 have teamed as much as rework Salomon’s Speedcross four in each black and white. Initially designed for technical path operating, the sneaker has the sort of high-alpine touches that now mark you as a person of (a sure downtown sort of) fashion: cinched laces, numerous cables, thick treads. To spherical issues out, every shoe will get Palace branding down the center and the model’s emblem printed on the toe.
If obscure French mountain sneakers signify one ultra-hyped portion of the footwear market, then the Supreme and Nike Skateboarding collaboration—a throwback—alerts the opposite. The 2 corporations have teamed up on a brand new model of the Dunk Low, a beloved hypebeast sneaker of an earlier period—actually, one of many first hyped-up sneakers to wow sneakerheads and streetwear fanatics alike. (This is not Nike and Supreme’s first time on the rodeo: GQ’s Cam Wolf not too long ago dove went deep on the lifespan of a pair of 2002 Nike x Supreme SB Dunks.) The sneaker includes a leather-based higher with metallic leather-based toe panel, Zoom Air unit within the heel, and a shiny jewel swoosh. The Supreme Dunk Low can be provided in three colorways: black and silver, navy and gold, and white and pink.
