For any living self-respecting sneaker head, Supra is one of those brands you are very aware of and you admire. Since 2006, Supra has been making waves throughout the sneaker community with their innovative design and style. Along the way Supra reinvented how people saw a pair of kicks, with their release of the Skytop sneaker in 2006. The Skytop revolutionized the sneaker design from the ground up. Inspired by Chad Muska, the Skytop has produce 4 different editions of the style including the latest Skytop IV.
“The Skytop IV is something completely new,” Muska said. “It’s pushing footwear design into the future, it’s merging worlds, and different genres—its high fashion meets high performance athletic footwear. We really wanted to create a shoe that you could go skate with the homies in, then come home, put a fresh pair on, and go out at night in—one to skate, one to chill.”
The Skytop is as much a shoe as it is a philosophy. Since it’s inception in 2006, it’s been a reflection of Chad Muska’s passion for art, creativity, and progression, while at the same time it embodies the spirit of a skateboarder rebelling against traditional mainstream culture and anything the masses consider popular and safe. Chad, it can be said, is on a journey, and the path he walks is in the Skytop IV.
The black Skytop IV is available NOW worldwide, and the red SUPRATUF Skytop IV will follow on December 24. The first two limited edition models that are being pre-released for the holidays are outfitted in black-waxed suede and red pig suede. A short list of the many features include:
*Short eye stay with a long, clean vamp
*Ribbed padding on an extra tall tongue and heel inset
*Black TPR inset pad that accepts pyramid rivets for affixing removable padded shroud. Shroud is available for these two styles only
*Industrial-style arm bar with hexagonal rivet detail
*Durable heel pull
*Padded mesh lining
*Lightweight SUPRAFOAM midsole with a ridged heel accent and unique sidewall line
*Translucent rubber outsole
I had the great honor of having the Skytop IV weeks before it was released, and they have a similar look to the Yeezy’s but of course with Supra’s unique touch. This shoe will bring back the admiration people had for the Supra brand again, it won’t bring back everyone but it’s a good start. The show fits true to size and goes great with straight leg pants, sweats and leather pants as well. The Skytop IV is currently SOLD OUT after only one day, congrats Supra!
