Seafaring sneaker themes have been growing in popularity with the success of models like CNCPTS’ stellar New Balance 999 ‘Kennedy’ and the general success of boat shoes (-inspired sneakers) in all corners of the fashion landscape. Supra has dabbled in aquatic themes ranging from all-over nautical prints to esoteric references to specific salmon breeds, and now their most direct use of a Neptune muse to date. The Supra Skytop ‘Fishscale’ has a highly textured black leather build instead of the opalescent shades you might expect from the name, their aggressive scales the kind of thing that will catch your eye from afar and still have you staring up close trying to figure out exactly what you’re seeing. More photos follow the jump below, and you can find the Supra ‘Fishscale Pack’ available now at Kith.
Ripped idea or not, these are pretty fresh. Should've gone with some dark grey soles tho instead of white
