Supra’s first women’s sneaker collaboration is with none other than JUNQUI fave A-Morir .
Michael Jackson’s Thriller has inspired many things from music, videos, trends, dancing and now SUPRAS. Supra presents two new sneakers that take a bit of a premium fashion approach in terms of design and material use.
“SUPRA has created two styles, red and black, of Jim Greco’s classic Thunder that evoke the archetypical 80’s MJ look. The upper is created from soft and sumptuous kidskin leather, and the inside of each shoe is lined with visa terry. Unique features include a fully functional retro 80’s zipper on the outside of each shoe, as well as the custom “Thriller” print on the sock liner, and a custom “Thriller” hang tag.”
“For Fall 2011 Supra goes above and beyond the original Henry boot, with a more rugged, outdoor-focused offering. Take the Douglas (front) which features tough metal eyelets, woven rope laces and heavy-gauge stitching with waterproof uppers and neoprene lining, meaning they’re both comfy, easy to pull on and off, and keep you dry.
Second up to bat (the back 5) is the Skyboot, a piece of footwear that takes the highly-recognizable Skytop silo and mates it with a heavy-duty lug outsole (and moccasin style stitching) to give birth to a weather-ready outdoor stomper. The addition of raw leather laces finishes the look, further enunciating the traditional boot lineage they’ve attempted to harness.
And yes, Muska fans, the “stash pocket” remains intact.”-via Highsnobiety
