The fourth generation of Chad Muska’s signature skate model is upon us with the impending release of the SUPRA SKYTOP IV and it is a welcome return to the high cut that gives the shoe its name. What is abundantly clear from the design of the IV is the amount of thought that has gone into the shoe’s real-life usage. Technical skate features like the long, one-piece vamp and short eye stay (no broken laces here) meets a high-fashion aesthetic with allusions to some very well-known silhouettes.
Muska has recognised that previous iterations of the Skytop have been seen as regularly on the feet of skaters as on the likes of some hi-profile celebrities and he’s fed that into the design of the IV. In his words, the new Skytop is ‘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’.
The SUPRA SKYTOP IV in the Black colourway is available now and can be found via the link-through below, with the Red colourway scheduled to drop on Christmas eve. We’ll also be stopping by the Launch event this evening and will be rounding it up in the next couple of days so stay tuned.
