We’re delighted to announce that über-cool brand Supra is coming to Schuh. Supra footwear was founded in 2005 by Angel Cabada, a devoted skater based out of Orange County, California. Angel took the knowledge he gained from working at the skate brand KR3W Footwear, and used it to start his own brand, Supra. The ultimate skate hi top, these trainers have become a huge hit on the skating scene as well as securing a plethora of celebrity fans including Jay-Z, Lil’ Wayne and Justin Timberlake. Supra means ‘above and beyond’ in Latin and the brand’s meteoric rise to fame certainly echoes this sentiment.
January sees the first of our Supra styles hit the stores with the Skytop. This simple hi top design with its clean lines and single colour upper is pure, unadulterated cool.
Next up is the Skytop II, higher than the original Skytop and with an outlandish tongue, this shoe is perfect for skaters as it has rubber sidewalls in skate sensitive areas around the toe box. Not that we’re suggesting non-skaters won’t love it too!
The third generation of the Skytop is a little bit different with its mid top silhouette. The Skytop III boasts a contrasting outsole designed for increased flexibility and has a distinctly ‘skate’ feel. We’re seriously excited about this brand.
