Plenty of sneaker brands have tried workwear or otherwise blue collar-leaning colorways over the past couple years, and even though that connection is referenced in the Supra Pilot ’Utility’ nickname, the design (and previous explicit ‘Workwear’ drops from the Crown brand) require that we think another layer deeper to make sense of what’s going on here.  At first glance, this is just a tonal black shoe with a white sole, but a closer look reveals that a combination of rugged cotton twill and soft microfiber are not only providing depth of color.  There’s also a statement here on the kinds of materials that were once geared toward the average American workday (denim for hard labor) as compared to today’s decidedly more white-collar population (microfiber to clean your LCD or smartphone display).  Supra has subtly packed in a satisfyingly thoughtful theme into this unassuming hightop skate shoe, and you’ll find them available now directly from the source.
