Pics of Uber-Rare Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Low Samples from 2003 Emerge
By now, you’re probably well aware that famed New York City label Supreme are back at it with Nike SB, prepping a trio of Dunk Lows for a 2021 release. The duo have been responsible for some of the ,most sought-after colourways of the Dunk we’ve ever seen, and they’ve taken inspiration from the coveted Dunk High from 2003 for this latest drop. However, with the reveal of some very rare samples, it looks like these latest Lows could’ve actually been part of that fabled 2003 drop.
Well-known sneaker collector lefunkyfantom has shared pics of three Dunk Lows, which were allegedly meant to release back in ’03 alongside, or possibly instead of, the aforementioned Dunk High. Apparently, the unreleased 2003 trio was rejected due to legal issues at Nike, and also because Supreme founder James Jebbia hated the all-over Nike branding on the mid panel, which explains why gold stars became the decorative print of choice for the eventual drop.
With the OG colab arriving in orange, red, and ‘Caroline Blue’, the new colourways will be an interesting mix consisting of a White/Metallic Gold/Hyper Blue, White/Metallic Gold/Mean Green, White/Metallic Gold/Black, and White/Metallic Gold/Barkroot Brown. As expected, the gold stars and croc skin overlays are the key design points.
The latest Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Lows are rumoured for release sometime in early 2021 at select skate shops. Do you prefer the Nike branding or the stars?
