SUPRA SKYTOP 2
This is not one for heads as such but we dig the Skytop and that's that. With the original already in the Hall of Fame, it was an interesting move for Supra to create a second version of their most notorious model. With such high stakes to play for, the brand went way out of their way to keep the shoe a secret, even sending execs around the world with them handcuffed to their wrist! After months of horse whispering, the design was finally revealed and it was clear that the second Skytop entailed a slightly fancier level of panelling and a fresh skyhigh tongue that even Gene Simmons would be jealous of. Once again, Supra have it just right, staying one kickflip ahead of the imitators. The initial gradient colorway looks perfect, and dare we say it, more like an '80s runner than a kneetop skate thrasher.
