Supra | Skytop IV Origins Video

19 December 2013, 08.43 | Posted in Skateboarding, Sneakers | 2 comments »


We’ve been pretty harsh on the new Skytop IV so thought it would only be fair to give Supra a chance to explain what the hell they were thinking when they came up with the new design. Unfortunately, once they brought Star Wars into the mix they lost us. The Force is not to blame for those ear muffs.

SUPRA SKYTOPIV RED Press 3000x2000 Stack2 Supra | Red Skytop IV
Seeing this picture of the new Skytops rocking their furry little Christmas ear warmers makes us think we finally understand what smh means. Why Chad Musksa, why? We don’t even think you’d wear these things, leave all that craze to Jeremy Scott, please. To those so inclined, there are more looks after the jump.

Following up the dope Hammer Snake release comes another pair of kicks from Supra that we are feeling. The Wolf is a shoe/boot hybrid with super clean lines and one of the best names for a shoe on the market. Peep the black after the jump and get a pair here.

snake hero Supra | Hammer Snake
While we weren’t blown away by Supra’s last big release, the Skytop IV, we gotta give it to them for following strong with the Hammer Snake. Even though you’d think trying to make a faux snakeskin skate shoe could end up being a disaster, Supra nailed it with this simple yet ultra detailed remake of Greco’s signature kick. Look for them only at Supra’s 250 Crown Coalition retailers. Full detailed looks after the jump.

Supra Skytop IV

SKYTOPIV BLK HERO 1800x1200 Supra Skytop IV
On Black Friday Supra is set to release the Skytop IV, the latest iteration of the Chad Muska inspired sneaker that literally changed the template for skate shoes. Debuting in a clean black waxed suede and red colorway, the IV’s have a nice slightly more chill look than previous Skytops, at least until you put the “shroud” on it and then it looks like one of those horrible Spectre Chimera’s, so we don’t recommend doing that. Full looks after the jump.

Emerica Westgate G6

EM WESGATE LAUNCH MRKTNG 67185 540x405 Emerica Westgate G6
There’s no doubt about it, Brandon Westgate fuckin rips, but we aren’t bugging out over his new Emerica pro model G6. Although it promises higher quality construction, a necessary upgrade in the days of shitty skate shoes, the overall look seems to be too much of a throw back on one hand and too modern tech on the other resulting in a shoe without a distinct identity. It doesn’t mean Westgate isn’t still gonna rip the hell out of them, we just might not. What do you think of them? Peep the commercial after the jump.

Vans x DQM | Herringbone Twill Collection

05 DQM Vans Edit 756 540x360 Vans x DQM | Herringbone Twill Collection
DQM has just released the lookbook for their rad Holiday 2014 collabo collection with Vans. The simple beauty of the shoes speaks for itself but DQM’s description includes some fancy language that is actually pretty fun to read: “The DQM/Vans footwear collaboration takes design cues from the WWII HBT and gives them a twist. Using a unique enzyme process created specifically for this project, we wanted to make a subtle camo using the highs and lows that the enzyme process created. The reference for the colors are Jungle, Desert and Ocean. The eyelets have a saltwater patina finish and the shoes utilize a syped bottomplate, as a nod to Vans’ nautical past, and for the functionality of the tread on wet surfaces.” The Collection will only be available at DQM General in NYC and Boston and online. See the full lookbook shot in the Rockaways by Gerhard Stochl after the jump.

Even people that hate on the big sneaker companies coming into skateboarding have got to have a hard time hating on Lucas Puig’s Stan Smith Ltd’s.
