Nike SB Delta Force Vulc History
In the year 1986, Nike debuted the Delta Force. This hoop shoe flaunted a silhouette that closely resembled the design of the classic Nike Dunk, which was released around the same time. The Delta Force, however, did not get as much exposure as its sibling the Dunk.
16 years after, global giant Nike thought it was high time to cross over to the equally technical world of skate shoe manufacturing. Nike SB, short for skateboarding, was established and the first shoe under this line, the SB Dunk, was introduced. A modified version of the 80s b-ball shoe, its padding was increased, its insoles were replaced, and its traction pattern was altered to meet the demands of skaters.
Fast forward to the year 2004, Nike SB decided to give the Delta Force a chance to shine. With the help of renowned NYC skateboarding shop and clothing brand Supreme, the Delta Force was turned into a skate-worthy piece of footwear known as the Supreme x Nike SB Delta Force ¾.
Made with a chunky silhouette and a work boot-inspired ankle collar, the SB Delta Force ¾ was released in three colorways. Although a product of Supreme x Nike collaboration, which has been known to produce instant classics, this particular model didn’t get much attention. In fact, it is among the most underappreciated creations of this team up.
