You needn’t look any further for proof of the success of the Supra Owen than the ads promoting DC Shoes’ brand new Unilite Trainer. The Crown brand let the cat out of the bag when it comes to skate brands making a serious impact in the casual-running space, and their game-changer is back with a new colorway that implies a combination of lengthy history and (the potential for) great wealth. The grey and gold ‘Gilded’ Owen reminds us that even if the late 1800s allowed every man to potentially become the next Andrew Carnegie, all the money in the world couldn’t have bought him a pair of shoes this comfortable for the summertime. And if we follow the thread of time changing the status quo, how much more should we expect from Supra as the brand continues to expand its throne? Let us know what you think about the Owen and this new ‘Gilded’ drop after you’ve had a chance to check out the images below and grab your pair straight from Supra.
