Camoflague & White
Supra was conceived in 2006 as a part of the Krew Clothing Group; and to be honest it has never done much for me. Their roots are in skate footwear, an area I have never had an interest in; too big and bulky nine times out of ten. However they came to my attention not so long ago with their ‘Owen’ sneaker, a shoe based on the classic running silhouette I love oh so much. Then I found the Backwood…
Marketed as an “All-weather boot/athletic-shoe hybrid”, the Backwood looks nuts! The shape is elegant but not too in your face; the camo print is subtle yet stylish (especially at this current time of camo love), and the white midsole (made from their own in house developed SUPRAFOAM®) really sets these off. Being influenced as a boot also means that it should last longer than you will; no more worries of scuffing your new sneakers with these!
They’re available from the official Supra store in a variety of different colours, the black & white alternative also looks sweet. PLUS there’s a digi camo version if you’re feeling experimental; a tad too brash for me though.
