Just by the very nature of what the word is expressing, a ‘kamikaze’ should be a one-and-done kinda deal. And from the looks of the above pictured release, it’s clear Reebok isn’t the only brand reaching into its archives to find inspiration from an earlier mission. The Supra Skytop II ‘Kamikaze’s Revenge’ is based on 2008’s Skytop ‘Comakaze’, itself borrowing heavily from the Crown brand’s initial collaboration with Brooklyn Projects. So you get the zebra-striped overlay common to both of those atop the black and red Comakaze Skytop motif and applied to the Skytop II. A nice little history lesson on the brand, Supra‘s latest special edition will release in a 413-pair limited run this Saturday, exclusively at Factory 413.
