It’s Supra’s 10-year anniversary and the skate brand is beginning to celebrate. The Decade X pack is actually a series that will include one special execution of each of Chad Muska’s four signature silhouettes from the Supra Skytop line. The brand will be releasing a single celebratory shoe each month from now until the end of the year.
“I think doing anything positive consecutively for 10 years is worth celebrating, especially in business,” said Chad Muska, professional skateboarder and co-creator of the Skytop. “So we decided to do a few special edition products to celebrate this milestone. Seeing as the Skytop franchise is an iconic piece of Supra’s history, we decided to create a special shoe in all the current models from the 001 up to the IV.”
According to Supra, the Decade X series releases are inspired by Muska’s artwork and creative process with a focus on several key themes. The first Decade X drop is the Supra Skytop 001 ‘Layers’, done up in white printed leather and inspired by Muska’s creative space. Coming themes include the Skytop II ‘Transitions’, Skytop III ‘Reflections’ and Supra IV ‘Textures’. I’ve seen what’s coming and it’s definitely worth paying attention to what Supra and Muska have cooked up…
“The idea for layers comes from a wall in my studio where I have been painting for years,” said Muska. “I paint on it awhile then it’s painted white over top of the colorful layers to reflect the continuous buffing and painting that occurs on our walls in the streets and studio through time, which I felt was a good representation for this collection and for SUPRA. As we progress, we’re constantly changing, but the first designs and advertisements will always remain and be a part of whatever we do next.”
This first Decade X drop sits atop a translucent outsole — through it, a myriad of colors can be seen. The pink sole is painted and is complimented by matching foxing tape. Notable details include the “Forever” mark on the EVA footbed and a boldly stitched “X” at the heel. If I remember correctly, each Decade X ‘Layers’ Skytop is unique.
The Decade X ‘Layers’ Skytop retails for $150 in US men’s sizes 7 to 14 and is available now here.
