Sneaker Spotlight: Supreme x Vans Sk8-Hi SL “Public Enemy”

Sneaker Spotlight- Supreme x Vans Sk8-Hi SL "Public Enemy"

Get Supreme teamed up with a brand to make sneakers and the results are usually something others wished they could have thought of first. Although the skate shop’s partnership with Nike is what they are most commonly known for, coming in a close second is their ties with Vans.

Sneaker Spotlight: Supreme x Nike SB Dunk High Collection

Supreme x Nike SB Dunk High Collection

The follow-up to one of the most beloved collaborations between the sneaker titans in Nike and Supreme, it’s no surprise to see the two work again in order to come up with another classic pair of kicks. The Nike SB Dunk High Pro x “Supreme” pack did just that, seeking its source of classic color palettes with a little extra flair added by Supreme.

Though it seems as if it was just yesterday, the Van x Supreme x Bad Brains Collection that dropped in 2008 turns five years old later this month.
