The Supra Society pictured above is a brand new combination of colors and materials, but we wouldn’t blame you for thinking it looks familiar. More countries in the world use the red, white and blue trio than any other color combination, a third of the teams set to begin spring training for Major League Baseball share the same colors and we’re currently in the leap-month of an Olympic year where the host and the Games’ historically dominant nation both rock this familiar look. How skateboarding has yet to earn a spot as an Olympic sport is mindboggling given the inclusion of events like ballroom dancing, rhythmic gymasics and snowboarding, but this almost USAB-style ‘Midnight’ Society gives you that five-rings look until the IOC recognizes what’s likely the most significant new sport to emerge in the past half-century. Let us know how these compare to the litany of similarly colored kicks we’ve seen over the years, and grab your ‘Midnight’ Society straight from Supra.
