While most Supreme drops are notoriously tough to cop at launch as it is, unfortunately, there's now a solid chance your next grail might sell out even faster than usual. Supreme owners VF Corp are reportedly facing supply chain issues that are set to affect the New York brand on a global level.
The news comes following a report by Bloomberg that details the issues Vans, another VF Corp owned brand, is facing due to the new Covid-19 restrictions within some of its supply chain countries such as Vietnam.
With Supreme's seasonal weekly drop model purely reliant on a steady source of production and scheduled releases, this could mean a few issues might arise for the brand. For instance, we could likely see a drop in quantities available, meaning the drops become more limited than before.
Alternatively, there's a chance we may see some scarcity in the drops themselves with fewer styles on offer in comparison to previous collections.
With Bloomberg reporting an inventory drop of a whopping 33%, things aren't looking great for Supreme. It remains to be seen how exactly the upcoming scarcity will affect Supreme's hype and standing on the resell market, but we can only imagine a price hike might be on the way.
