Sneakers


No shoe collection is complete…. ever. If you're shopping for a special someone who loves limited edition and hard-to-find sneakers, we can help.

Nike Air Force 1 Supreme 07 White

Nike Air Force 1 Supreme 07 White


For the 25th Anniversary of the Air Force 1 in 2007, Nike collaborated with Supreme to release a new rendition of the classic Nike Air Force 1 silhouette. Crafted in smooth white leather with no exposed stitching, the Air Force 1 Supreme is a study in simplicity. Nodding to the shoe’s history, the Supreme Air Force 1s feature leather deubrés laser-engraved with “AF1 ‘82,” and tongue tags embossed with “Nike Air Force 1 XXV.” The Air Force 1 Supreme also trades the AF1’s traditional stitched heel tabs for laser-engraved “Nike Air” tabs, and features a perforated leather sock lining.

Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro High Chicago 1994

Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro High Chicago 1994


The Nike Air Jordan 1 is one of the most iconic designs in the history of both streetwear and basketball. Designed by Peter Moore, the AJ1 debuted in 1984, paving the way for the many signature player collabs we see today. It wasn’t until 1994, however, that Nike released the first Air Jordan 1 Retro, making these Jordan 1 Chicago 1994s highly sought after by collectors. This pair of Chicago Jordan 1s are in the Bull’s iconic black, white and red colorway, perhaps the most recognizable for Michael, as well as the Nike brand. The Air Jordan 1 Chicagos are unmatched when it comes to quality, craftsmanship, materials, innovation, performance and, of course, style.

Nike Air Jordan 4 Retro KAWS

Nike Air Jordan 4 Retro KAWS


The Air Jordan 4 Retro KAWS marks the first collaboration between Jordan Brand and legendary street artist KAWS, aka Brian Donnelly. The 2017 release was so hotly anticipated that it nearly started a riot—a London raffle for the Air Jordan 4 Retros had to be shut down by police. Featuring uppers and midsoles dressed in premium gray suede, the Jordan 4 Retro KAWS collab definitely lives up to the hype: KAWS’ distinctive Mickey Mouse-inspired glove graphics adorn the insoles, outsoles and uppers, along with his signature ‘XX’ on the heel tabs of the Air Jordan 4 Retro sneakers.

Streetwear


Look around any major capital, and it’s quickly clear that streetwear reigns supreme. It’s the perfect gift for style-philes who like to flex their fashion chops.

Supreme x Jean Paul Gaultier Fur Coat

Supreme x Jean Paul Gaultier Fur Coat


Jean Paul Gaultier is no stranger to pop culture collaborations, being responsible for Madonna’s iconic cone bra, Nirvana’s wardrobe in the video for Heart Shaped Box, and many of the costumes from the classic ‘90’s sci-fi film The 5th Element. This Supreme coat is part of a capsule collection conceived by Gaultier in collaboration with Supreme clothing. Released in 2019, this faux-fur Supreme x Jean Paul Gaultier coat boasts cream-colored faux fur with a red and black plaid pattern. Its double-breasted placket design features two front flap pockets and “SUPREME GAULTIER" branding on its buttons.

Louis Vuitton x Supreme Jacquard Denim Trucker Jacket

Louis Vuitton x Supreme Jacquard Denim Trucker Jacket 


In 2000, the six-year-old skate company Supreme received a cease and desist letter from one of the most notable luxury fashion houses in the world, Louis Vuitton. Seventeen years later, the two brands unveiled their highly coveted Supreme x Louis Vuitton collaboration at Le Palais Royale in Paris for the Fall/Winter 2017 Menswear Collection. Hats, t-shirts, and skate decks— the same items that in 2000 prompted the cease and desist—now featured the Louis Vuitton logo. This trucker jacket comes in blue cotton denim with a Supreme Louis Vuttion monogram pattern.

This Louis Vuitton belt, from Virgil Abloh’s SS19 collection for the maison, is the perfect addition to a stylish wardrobe of winter whites. The LV belt, in Taurillon leather with a gommato finish, is subtly embossed with the LV monogram. A matte buckle in the shape of the iconic LV initials completes the tonal look of this white Louis Vuitton belt.
