Shoe Pick #27 – Supra

Supra Backwood
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…Supra 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.

Available at Supra – £80


About Tom McCluskey

My name is Tom, and this is my blog! I'm 19 years of age, and just beginning my 2nd year of a BSc/BA Product Design degree at Bournemouth University, UK. Otherwise, I live at home in Romford, London (not Essex!) during the summer period. Design is something I'm taking ever more seriously in life. Starting my degree, hoping to explore a field I had dabbled in with GCSE Graphics at school, design has gradually become something of an obsession. Shoe/Trainer/Sneaker design is something that particularly interests and inspires me, I'm quite the "sneakerhead", and I plan on using this blog to showcase my journey through university, and beyond. When it comes to extracurricular activities, I'm a big fan of sports, football and badminton in particular. West Ham United are my team, and you'd struggle to find a more passionate fan. Just ask my girlfriend, I was absolutely delirious when we won the play off's final against Blackpool earlier this year, COYI! Anyway, I hope you enjoy what I've got to showcase here in my blog, thanks for dropping by. Tom.
