SUPRA just launched its newest skate silhouette, The Shifter, and is kicking it off with two signature colorways concepted by Lucien Clarke and Dane Vaughn.
The Shifter is a low-top cup sole skate sneaker designed in an unconventional silhouette. The upper features a warping construction with an asymmetrical lace design; this helps avoid getting laces and other materials getting caught in a trick and helps keep high abrasion areas intact.
Other features include perforations for breathability, a stitch and turn seam for reduced blowouts, flex grooves, and a new “s” reach for reduced weight, increased flexibility and longer life. The upper rests atop an internal EVA “crash pad” for impact protection and a tar toecap for extra durability.
Lucien’s signature colorway retails for $80 and includes reflective 3M polka dots for a striking flash for nighttime sessions. Dane’s retails for $75 and is a clean cut off-white and black silhouette and is his first signature shoe with SUPRA.
