Nike and Supreme have teamed up, yet again, this summer to remake the Nike Air Streak Spectrum Plus.
Last summer, Supreme partnered with Nike to release a modified version of the Nike Air Humara, which was discontinued back in 1998. The Humara was not a popular shoe and was quickly discontinued when the developer didn’t like the shoe’s design. The Humara was originally designed to be worn for hiking and rough terrains but in 2017, Supreme brought the shoe back into mainstream popularity.
This summer, Supreme is again highlighting an older, less popular shoe. The Air Streak Spectrum Plus was released in 2003. However, it never gained the popularity that it will experience after its revamped released with Supreme. The running shoe will debut in two color combinations: “White/Habanero-Red” and “Black/Volt”. With the Pylon midsole, TPU midfoot shank, a mesh tongue with puff logo appliques, suede heel panels, and embossed reflective logos, the Spectrum Plus do not disappoint in performance. Flames cover the mesh upper contrasting the leather panels for a unique design.
The design of the shoe plays on the nostalgia of the early 2000s when the shoe was released. The chunkiness of the shoe brings back trends from athletic wear during the 2000s and the flames almost look like hot wheels.
For an estimated $160, this collaboration will release online and in the New York City, Los Angeles, London and Paris Supreme stores on June 14th. Japan will also have a release in stores on June 16th.
