Supra Officially Unveils the Skytop III

As the third installment in Chad Muska’s groundbreaking, and now classic, line of SUPRA footwear, the SKYTOP III is being hailed as the most stylistically and technologically advanced offering in the collection thus far. The SKYTOP III continues the tradition of fusing skate with fashion, but in a slightly lower profile. The shoe features a molded TPR cage highlighted by lines that hearken back to the original SKYTOP. This version offers a modern rubber cup sole with full-length, blown EVA throughout the forefoot and heel.

The skate sensitive areas are reinforced with rubber sidewalls. Inside the shoe a fully enclosed mesh booty provides breathable support and increased comfort. Lift the footbed to discover the removable EVA pod with an encapsulated air pocket that provides extra heel impact protection. The tread pattern was carefully designed to give greater flexibility and increased board feel. And, finally, in keeping with Muska tradition, there’s a stash spot behind the tongue. Or, as Chad himself simply described the SKYTOP III, “It’s part tech runner and part basketball shoe, mixed in with the lines of the original SKYTOP.” Initial offerings at launch are available in white (Gunny TUF), grey (suede), red (suede), and black (nubuck).
