Year: 2003

It's hard to remember now in the era of all-elephant everything, but there was a time when Mars Blackmon's favorite print was kept under lock and key save for rare Air Jordan III releases. The mere thought of applying elephant to a non-Jordan sneaker bordered on the sacrilegious. So when Supreme's first Nike collab came to light, the Jordanesque skate shoes were immediately the most (Nike) Talked about sneaker on the planet. These didn't ride the wave of SB obsession as much as they created it.
