Supra has so widely expanded their range of colorways and models over the past year or so that the only logical conclusion would be expanding beyond their skateboarding beginnings. We got the earliest hints of this movement from the Crown brand’s boot offerings, and now their first non-skate athletic release offers a solution to the most fundamental sport. The Supra Owen is a low-cut runner with a silhouette that’s somewhere between the Jordan CMFT 10 and one of Nike’s LunarLon drops, and though it might not have the technical advantages of the world’s leading running shoe manufacturers, the breathable and super-lightweight 9oz build all but guarantee a comfortable ride (especially for casual purposes). Check out the first four colorways courtesy of early recipient Ben Baller, and stick with Sneaker News for updates on all the 2012 Supra sneakers.
