Supra Decade X Skytop III “Reflections”

By Jay Casteel  |  10/21/2016

Supra's 10-year anniversary collection, Decade X, continues, with this special edition Skytop III.

Dubbed "Reflections", Chad Muska incorporated literal and figurative elements of this concept into the Decade X Skytop III. Composed of silver foiled leather, the sneaker's upper is covered with black distressed paint to complement the reflective theme and rugged athletic construction of the shoe. It also feature a black SUPRAFOAM midsole, elastic vamp band, flat-waxed laces and a custom embroidered Decade "X" hit on the sides. Finally, a translucent iced outsole reveals an underlying "Forever" print within the sole construction to tie back to each of the Skytop's that has dropped thus far.

"I work with a glass-like resin in a lot of my art," Muska said. "It reflects its surroundings much like a mirror, so I wanted to somehow use that sort of idea with this shoe. We achieved the reflection by using a 3M light reflecting material, then painted over top of it with distressed black paint, which allows cracks of the reflective material to break through. I wanted to signify the idea of shining through the darkness and reflecting light."

The Decade X Skytop III is available now online for $140 USD.
