As shown in the latest installment of Japanese footwear magazine SHOES MASTER Vol. 23, Supreme offers an exclusive look at their upcoming collaboration with Nike SB as they reveal their iteration on the dated GTS model. Popular amongst skateboarders in the early 90s and having been originally released as a tennis shoe under the Nike Sportswear division, the vulcanized low-tops come equipped with herringbone uppers in black, white, yellow and red with a denim option available in a mid-blue chambray. The shoes bear a calligraphic Supreme logo embroidered across their heel-counters with Nike branding being reserved to the leather heel-tab, tongue and miniaturized swoosh which has become a familiar detail to the GTS model.
The collaboration is expected to release late May of this year and will be available directly from Supreme.
Another bit of Stone Island news as Supreme presents its aptly-timed collaborative capsule with Italian company for Winter 2014 season. Consisting of both a crewneck and hooded sweatshirt as well as a jacket, sweatpant and camp cap, the collection features subtle branding from both parties while retaining the performance-oriented features Stone Island is famous for. For example, the Raso Gommato Cover Nero Jacket is crafted from a wind and water-resistant cotton satin bonded to a polyurethane coating and outfitted with a removable liner.
Look for the collection in-store in at Supreme locations in New York, Los Angeles, London and online on October 2 and later across Japan on October 4. The capsule will also be available at select Stone Island stores.
Bulgarian artist Simeon Georgiev is back with his latest series of illustrated streetwear staples exclusively for Highsnobiety. This time featuring the mischievous trio Huey, Dewey and Louie, the identical triplets come outfitted in Supreme, Nike, Givenchy and MORT. In the first set, the identical triplets double up on the unmistakable box logo, with each monochromatic outfit set against a matching pair of Air Max 1s.

Comme des Garçons SHIRT and Supreme recently teamed to produce a special 2014 Spring/Summer Collection with Vans chiming in with a set of footwear offerings as well.
Using the same fabric Comme des Garçons used for the apparel items, Vans re-interpreted both the Sk8-Hi and the Era, incorporating the signature visual themes of the collection. The Era, appearing in both black and red, combines both white polka dot and stripes for the upper and features the Supreme tag stamped on the heel and Comme des Garçons SHIRT printed on the white rubber outsole. The Sk8-Hi features a similar upper while also paying a graphical tribute to late NYC skate legend Harold Hunter.
