It’s easy to forget amid the popularity of the Dunk and Air Force 1 Highs, Jeremy Scott’s ’80s basketball throwbacks for adidas or even the Crown brand’s own Society, that Supra’s first Skytop represented a huge departure and helped to spark a renewed interest in hightops and beyond. So this is a brand who recognizes the value of making a definitive aesthetic statement, and yet, they’ve never produced anything quite like this new model we’re showcasing today. The Supra Falcon has more of a lifestyle look to it than serious skateboarding, thanks to premium leahter uppers lacking any simblance of ollie reinforcement, and instead focusing on a molded look in the neighborhood of Kanye West’s Louis Vouitton collabos or last winter’s Batman-ish Puma Urban Swift. Let us know what you think of this stand-out design after you examine the Falcon in greater detail below, and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for word on the US debut.
