Supra Skytop III

supra skytop iii 3 00 Supra Skytop III

Supra‘s introduction of the first Skytop in 2007 helped to divert attention from technical specification and instead to functionality. Those very notions have since replicated beyond skateboarding sneakers and into footwear designs for other sports. Now, 4 years later, skater Chad Muska hopes to inaugurate a new design sensibility with his new signature footwear, the Supra Skytop III. With lead Supra designer Josh Brubaker, Muska envisioned a design that incorporate many technical aspects unavailable back in 2007, aspects from seamless stitching to sonic welding. Yet, it must adhere to the Skytop’s original directive of simplicity. All those ideas resulted in what Muska called “part tech-runner and part basketball shoe, mixed in with the lines of the original Skytops…” The very first noticeable difference is the cage-like rubber overlay around the midfoot. Next, a thicker vulcanized sole in contrast white, but from what Muska mentioned, it is to be lighter too.  Comes in a variety of constructs, including suede and Supra trademarked SUPRATUF, the new Supra Skytop III (3) is set to make its debut this summer. via: SF
