Some of them had even journeyed to Sydney from inter-state to the official Supply ” Pop Up” Store installation space – thus inadvertently becoming the personification of Nike’s most fundamental principle: ‘Just Do It’.

All those in line were in high spirits, hoping to have their Abloh x Off-White iterations of the Nike “Top Ten” kicks autographed by Virgil
