This is our newly weekly segment and it’s all about kicks. Throwback Shoesday is inspired from Throwback Thursday, but instead we will display a pair of kicks that use to roam the streets back in the day. I suppose you could call it Throwback Tuesday, but how lame and boring is that!?
“It’s the Dream Team meets the Supreme team..” This is a quote from rapper Jay-Z on G.O.O.D. Music’s hit single “Clique”. While the exact meaning of that verse is only known by Hova himself, a sneakerhead would hope that the “Supreme team” line is reference to the Supreme clothing brand. Supreme does have some pretty dope clothing, but to us sneak-lifers we are mostly concerned with their Supreme X Nike SB Dunk Low collaborations.
The product of Supreme and Nike coming together was first released in 2002 with the black/cement colorway. This shoe immediately brings back memories of the iconic Air Jordan colorway that has not on made its way on Jordan Retros but Team Jordan shoes as well. The Supreme X Nike version of the Nike Dunk SB can only be found on the feet of a few very lucky sneakerheads. Unfortunately after doing some extensive Ebay research, I found out that this sneaker is currently not up for auction on Ebay, so if you’re still kicking yourself for missing this release you may to switch to softer shoe. Check back next Tuesday when we unveil our latest installment of Throwback Shoesday!
