We’ve been feasting off leaked looks of the upcoming Supreme Air Force One Highs. But those grainy pictures were going to feed us for long. Luckily there was just a very lowkey auction on eBay of a pair in Singapore that will give up all the secrets.
Here, we’ll break it down for you:
The upper is almost entirely leather. The swoosh is tumbled leather. The heel tab, where the strap goes through, is made of patent leather. The “SUPREME” branding along the heel is debossed then painted on the sneaker, and painted on the strap. “SUPREME” co-branding can be found on the tongue tag, the dubré, and the sockliner. Uptown AF1s are known for their significant sole, but these are even larger. Perhaps that explains why the product number shown in the pictures “698696-010” is a new one. Nike worked with Pigalle to reshape the AF1 to their specifications, doing the same with Riccardo Tisci. It stands to reason that Nike would let Supreme doctor the shoe to their needs.
It’s entirely possible that these aren’t the real deal. They’re coming from Singapore, but it would be a very quick turn around on very high quality fakes. It’s possible that these aren’t authentic, but we’re betting they are.
All we need is a release date now…
