The Solemart entrance line.
SUPRA is proud to have hosted SOLEMART 2013 in Paris yesterday. The annual sneaker event is growing beyond everyone's expectations as yesterday's attendance was enormous. It gets better every year mostly because of the quality and quantity of rare and exclusive sneakers that are being exchanged, but also because of the support of industry figures like Solebox co-founder Hikmet Sugor who was there with his family. In short, it was an amazing event and it seemed as if no one in the flourishing Paris sneaker scene missed it.

"The sneaker game is alive and thriving," said Michael Dupouy (La MJC co-founder) about Solemart 2013. "It was amazing to have that many people attend in a single day. Everybody was there, the old timers and the new generation. It was beautiful and a huge success—probably the best of the last four years in Paris."
A lucky few were able to get their hands on a pair of La MJC Owens.
The highly anticipated La MJC Owen, a collaboration between Michael Dupouy and SUPRA, was also released yesterday and the limited number that were available were quickly snatched up. A small quantity were held in reserve and are now available online in both men's and women's sizes at Club 75.
