The announcement of the Supreme x Nike Air Max Dn collaboration has sent some significant waves through the sneaker community, reminiscent of the strategic moves made by the Oregon sportswear giant in the early 2000s with the introduction of the Nike SB Dunk Low.
Much like its predecessor, the Nike SB Dunk, which debuted in 2002 with an honestly legendary collaboration with Supreme, this latest partnership marks a significant moment in more recent sneaker history. Backed by Sandy Bodecker and his team, the fusion of Supreme's urban aesthetic with Nike's innovative principles propelled the Nike SB Dunk into the spotlight of hustlers, instantly becoming a sensation in skate culture. Fast forward to today, the anticipation surrounding the Supreme x Nike Air Max Dn collaboration is comparable, hinting at yet another groundbreaking chapter in the annals of sneaker collaborations which is becoming quite rare these days.
Supreme's iteration of the Air Max Dn really does epitomise stealth. 
Cloaked almost entirely in sleek black hues, the upper boasts a construction of breathable, tightly-woven mesh accentuated by additional taping around the toe region. Sitting brave and boldly below is a remarkably chunky Dynamic Air midsole, which is the first of its kind. The unmistakable Futura Bold logo, a hallmark of the skate label's identity, commands attention as it stretches across the lateral side of the shoe, leaving a mark of Supreme's signature style, very similar to the supreme air max plus TN.
Clint419, who I'm sure you all know by now is the founder of Corteiz, recently took to Instagram to unveil another striking pair of the Supreme x Nike Air Max Dn collaboration. Dubbed the "Silver Bullet '' edition, this one will pay homage to the iconic Nike Air Max 97 silhouette, renowned for its legendary silver bullet colourway.
The design of the Supreme x Nike Air Max Dn "Silver Bullet" edition features a grey base, reminiscent of the classic Air Max 97 aesthetic, matched with silver "Supreme" branding along the lateral side. Adding to this  throwback nature, metallic silver accents grace the mudguard and heel, while vibrant red hues highlight the midfoot Swoosh of , tongue branding, and the Air unit of course. Notably, a white "Supreme" insignia finds itself inside on the Air unit, nodding to the brand's signature white-on-red motif.
Despite the anticipation surrounding this exclusive release, reports indicate that the second silver pair will remain a friends-and-family exclusive, with no plans for a public launch at present. However, given the unpredictable nature of sneaker releases, we advise to stay vigilant for any potential updates or announcements regarding the availability in the future as a third pair is rumoured.
