The long-running partnership between Supreme and Nike is set to take a walk on the opulent side this summer, as the dynamic duo is teaming up for three Swarovski crystal-adorned takes on the Air Max 95. Arriving in a “Triple Black,” a “Hyper Cobalt,” and a “Gym Red,” the color combos indicate that each pair will take on a mostly tonal look, while the Lux tag also nods to the shoe’s base possibly being constructed of a high-quality leather. If past Nike/Swarovski releases like the Air Max 97s and Vapormax Flyknit 2.0s are any indication, the shimmering crystals will be artfully dispersed across the upper’s paneling to provide their signature fancy flair. Of course, these premium embellishments come with an increased price tag — in this case, a kingly $500 USD. All three shoes are slated to drop this summer as part of Supreme’s SS ’19 collection, so be sure to check our Sneaker Release Dates page for a specific date as soon as it’s available, and bear in mind that the images below are early mock-ups, so the final product may very well differ.
This summer’s footwear demonstrates beautiful, new ways to approach color, construction and material innovation.
Inspired by alternative ways to make color, the Nike Plant Color Collection, featuring the Air Max 95 and the Blazer Low, uses plant-based dye.
The Nike Flyleather Earth Day Pack combines one of Nike’s most sustainable materials with artist Steve Harrington’s unique aesthetic to inspire the wearer with a love for the planet.
The Nike Air VaporMax 2.0 Random uses excess Flyknit yarn (that would have otherwise gone to a landfill) to create a one-of-a-kind shoe.
Look for the Nike Sustainability Collection to release throughout the Summer of 2019 at select retailers and Nike.com.
