Supreme officially unveiled its latest collaboration with Nike today, presenting four special colorways of the Nike SB Tennis Classic made exclusively for the New York brand.
Originally called the Wimbledon when it debuted in 1975, the Tennis Classic was renamed during the 1980s and updated with a new cupsole. Nike SB re-introduced the silhouette once again in 2005, adding Zoom Air in the heel for improved protection. Eight years later, the classic design returns once again, this time as part of a limited edition collaboration with Supreme.
The Supreme x Nike SB Tennis Classic arrives in four colorways, each featuring a premium leather upper with textured overlays and subtle reflective striping at the heel. Retro Nike and Supreme branding appears on the tongue and insole, while Supreme's classic script graces the heel tab.
The Supreme x Nike SB Tennis Classic Collection launches in-store at Supreme New York, Los Angeles and London, as well as online, on April 25. Supreme's Japanese retail locations will follow with a release on April 27.
