The world of sneakerheads is abuzz with the news of the upcoming collaboration between Supreme and Nike. The two titans of streetwear and sneakers have teamed up to release a new version of the classic Nike Air Bakin model, and it’s set to drop in Week 2 of the spring/summer 2023 season.
For those who may not be familiar, the Nike Air Bakin was first introduced in 1996 as a high-top basketball shoe. It was designed by Eric Avar and featured a combination of leather and synthetic materials, as well as a visible Air unit in the heel for cushioning. The shoe was worn by several NBA players during its original run and has since become a cult classic among sneaker enthusiasts.
This isn’t the first time Supreme has collaborated with Nike. The brand’s previous collaborations with Nike have sold out almost instantly, so sneakerheads and Supreme fans alike will want to act fast when these shoes drop.
The release date for the Supreme x Nike Air Bakin has not been officially announced, but rumors suggest it will be Week 2 of the spring/summer 2023 season. Keep an eye out for any official announcements from Supreme and Nike, and be ready to grab a pair when they drop. Check below for a mockup by SupremeCommunity.
