SUPRA Proudly Presents The "PARIS" SKYTOP
JULY 12, 2011
Did we ever thank the French for the Statue of Liberty? Someone said, “Thank you,” right? That would be very rude if no one sent a card, or flowers, or anything. Because we’re very fond of our Lady Liberty. And here at SUPRA, we have a special connection to France: it is the home of our European headquarters, located in Biarritz, as well as the home of our European showroom, located in Paris. So as a belated “merci” for the statue, and to commemorate the opening of our Paris store, we’ve created a SKYTOP in the colors of the French flag. The shoe’s upper is blue tumbled leather with red, white, and blue eyelets, the upper has "PARIS" embroidered tonally, the heel applique is also red, white, and blue, there are two different colored footbeds each featuring custom “PARIS" artwork, and they come with an Eiffel Tower hangtag. We’d like to think Rimbaud was wearing a pair of these when he was walking the streets in the city of light and wrote, “Plus léger qu'un bouchon j'ai dansé sur les flots.”1 But he was probably just drunk. This is one of the most limited edition products SUPRA will have ever made available to the public. Strictly limited to 100 pairs (sequentially numbered on the inside of the tongue), they will be available on Saturday, July 16 at 11 a.m. at SUPRA Paris.
