Kelly Oubre turned heads with his on court attire on Tuesday night. There wasn’t anything special about the uniform he wore, it was the standard red, white, and blue Wizards unis that they wear on the road. The kicks that he wore on his feet weren’t anything to write home about, either.
Instead, Oubre wore a shooting sleeve on his right leg. He’s known for doing this, but this one was special, as it was a Supreme shooting sleeve that is a collaboration between the company and Nike (who now are the official outfitters of the NBA).
Here is a look at a few pictures of Oubre rocking the Supreme sleeve on his leg from the game.
The sleeves are available on Supreme’s site (although presently sold out, as tends to happen with Supreme merch), and are sold in red and black. Both feature the Supreme logo, the Nike swoosh, and the famous NBA silhouette of Jerry West dribbling.
This may not be the only collaboration coming between Supreme and Nike, as High Snobiety reports they may team up on uniforms.
According to sources, Supreme is set to collaborate with NikeLab on a set of three NBA jerseys alongside the shooting sleeve that surfaced in Supreme’s FW17 lookbook.
Supreme jerseys would certainly be quite the venture by Nike, which took over the production of NBA gear earlier this year. While they won’t be for teams to wear on the court, if they end up being put on the market the jerseys would assuredly sell like wildfire.
