Earlier today Sneaker News gave you a look at some upcoming colorways of the Supra Chimera designed by Lil Wayne as part of the budding Spectre by Supra line. The future of this interesting new line has a lot more to celebrate beyond the Chimera because Supra expects this new endeavor to flourish as it takes on the street/skate scene with full force. Supra held a special unveiling party in Miami on Friday night, with a load of notable names like Bun B, Stevie J, Don Cannon, Mack Maine, skaters Chaz Ortiz, Stevie Williams and Chad Muska, French rappers Booba and Gato and, of course, Lil Wayne and the new Chimera sneaker. Along with a special display for the Chimera and other upcoming shoes, indoor vert ramps were installed for the skaters to put the shoe into action, tattoo artist BJ Betts provided complimentary tattoos, and of course, there were loads and loads of women (it’s Miami, would you expect any less?). Check out the full event recap for the Lil Wayne x Spectre by Supra unveiling below and stay tuned for a release of the Chimera on May 18th.
