Jim wanted to combine the comfort and protection of a cup sole with the nimbleness and board feel of a vulcanized sole in his signature Hammer. It was accomplished with a SUPRAFOAM midsole that is thicker in the heel and thus provides more cushion, while tapering to a thinner depth at the toes. The result is a light, comfortable skate shoe that has the best elements from a cup and a vulc sole. This new style is made of burgundy suede and twill with a padded tan mesh lining, and it's built on a white SUPRAFOAM midsole with burgundy speckle and a white outsole with gum traction. The Hammer is available at better skate retailers worldwide, and suprafootwear.com.
