Thursday, August 30, is the release date of the Supreme Nike SB Gato.
This is yet another example of how profit is nearly always made by both Supreme and its resellers who take advantage of the margin between the retail and resale price of items that sell out quickly.
It’s no wonder then that sneaker and streetwear fans as well as resellers are going after this hyped release, which is an indoor soccer shoe, and are wondering how to buy the Supreme Nike SB Gato, as well as the many others that have released in the past, like the many Supreme New York clothing items that made up this $10,000+ profit streetwear month.
If you’re new to Supreme, you might be wondering…
Why is Supreme New York releasing an Indoor Soccer Shoe, and how is it so successful at doing crazy stuff like this?
Although Supreme is a skateboard brand, it has branched out everywhere, from suitcases with Rimowa (which have had resale value that meant thousands of dollars in profit) and an extravagant partnership with Louis Vuitton with $8,000 resale pricetags (double its $3500 retail price).

Branching off to other items seems to have been profitable in the past for Supreme, and this time they are leaking into the world of indoor soccer and still creating hype.
What to expect with the release of the Supreme x Nike SB Gato
With a retail price of $110, the Supreme x Nike SB Gato is on the cheaper end compared to Nike Air Jordans, and for resellers, this means a smaller investment with easier margins to be made.

Not only is the Nike SB Gato created for comfort, it’s well crafted for performance on both the soccer field and even for skateboarding with its flat and wide gum sole that gives it grip and stability.
A leather constructions with a splash of colors and subtle Supreme branding are all part of what makes this shoe a winner.

So be sure to set a reminder for yourself, whether it’s an alarm on your iPhone, something in your Google Calendar or your actual physical calendar, that a Supreme release happens every Thursday and that money can be made from it every week.
You have to be quick to grab a Supreme item, which often sell out in seconds.
If you’re a fast typer, and you combine this with knowing the release date and time beforehand, you now have a high chance of securing a pair of shoes like these SB Gato’s.
The Supreme Resale Bible goes through more clever tips that have proven profitable for many of its readers.
