Really it's the old news that's the new news. Did that make sense? Not so much but my point being that you only need a few random words to fully embrace the concept of gibberish. Befuddled yet? Hopefully not. You see what you are looking at below according to the fine folks over at Skateboard.com is a sneak peek of Terry Kennedy's new pro shoe from Supra.
Now, I could probably pick up the phone and call a few people to confirm but at press time (and I use that term in the loosest sense possible) I don't really care all that much. Supra is kinda a weird one for me because not being entrenched in the Hollywood crap of skateboarding I don't get shiny shoes and bright colors. I'm not sure who it was but I was once told that my view of skating was too "blue collar." I'm not quite sure why nor do I really give a fuck but this shoe looks like another high top from hell. But, hey these guys get paid and supposedly have some input. Take a glimpse ...
Like I said: high top from hell. At a glance it looks kinda, sorta like a leather high top but with a gum sole and some crazy strap flopping off the top like ski boot. Ah well whatever, Terry can rock all the crazy shit and try to get his rap career off the ground. At any rate it's a more sedate than some of the shoes they currently have in the collection. Take glimpse at some of these winners that are probably selling out much to my dismay...
Muska's shoe the skytop if nothing else looks like nothing else in skating. However you can also argue that every turd you lay is unique.
Yup, that's a gold shoe or as I like to call it a "Punch my face please" card.
Erik Ellingtons new shoe or Elton Johns footwear circa 1978? You decide.
Didn't Vans originally make this shoe? Didn't Emerica copy it and do it in purple already?
Linoleum is the new pleather
The Vulk low actually skated OK being one shoe of theirs I tried. However at this point just go buy a pair of half cabs. So there you have it ... Supra. But skating in all it's carbon copy glory has something for everybody claiming "individual" status. Supra might be your bag.
