Supra has offered respectful nods to Nike in a variety of ways since it was established just a few short years ago, everything from classic Air Jordan design elements to unmistakable classic colorways. The Supra Skytop III even has the vague appearance of a basketball sneaker design you might have seen in the late ’80s/early ’90s, and these latest two colorways evoke a couple of classics from around the same time period. One of them is a fairly obvious reference to Marty McFly’s Nike Air Mag from Back to the Future Part II and eBay mega-auction fame, while the other is less direct, though certainly similar in its color combo to the ‘Olive’ Air Jordan IX. Check em both out after the jump and look for these at select Supra stockists.
them shits with the clear soles are nice. i think the skytop 3s are underrated. i feel like the skytop 2s got more love, and i personally prefer these. better than skytop 1s? possibly not sure
Not bad. Mcflys would hava looked so much better had the plastic side panel been the same shade as the rest of the shoe.
Supra is one of the only brands that can get away with sampling styles from jordan and have it still look original.
you forgot the cap off the outsole its from the AJ21 and they got the idea for the 4 lacece holes from the AJ5. but the shoes great though seemed original in the beginning except when justin bieber started wearing them ughh... i cant stand his music sound's like a 12 year-old lesbian that has been found begging in the street's
