Today, Supra introduces Chad Muska's latest signature high-top — the Skytop 4. Aimed at purists, the model returns to its ultra-high cut with several callbacks to past designs.
"The Skytop IV is something completely new,” Muska told Supra. “It’s pushing footwear design into the future, it’s merging worlds, and different genres—it’s high fashion meets high performance athletic footwear. We really wanted to create a shoe that you could go skate with the homies in, then come home, put a fresh pair on, and go out at night in—one to skate, one to chill."
Since its inception in 2006, the Skytop has been a reflection of Muska's passion for art, creativity and progression. The first limited edition colorway of the Skytop 4 being pre-released for the holidays sports a deep, black waxed suede build. Other features include a short eyestay with a long, clean vamp; ribbed padding on an extra tall tongue and heel inset; a black TPR inset pad that accepts pyramid rivets for affixing removable padded shroud; an industrial-style arm bar with hexagonal rivet detail; a durable red heel pull; padded red and grey mesh lining; a lightweight black Suprafoam midsole with a ridged heel accent and unique sidewall; and a translucent rubber outsole.
The black Skytop 4 will be released at Supra retailers worldwide and suprafootwear.com next Friday, November 29.
