Skate brand Supra is expanding its popular Skytop franchise for the first time since 2013 with today’s launch of the Skytop V, the next iteration of the iconic pro-model series developed by skate team rider Chad Muska.

According to the company, the unisex style combines the technical capabilities of a skate shoe with the comfort of a running style. “Our Supra franchise has been an innovative and collaborative partnership with skate legend and icon Chad Muska,” said Supra brand President Cape Capener.

The Skytop V has a completely skateable midtop design, constructed with a four-part, rubber-encased, full-length EVA midsole for comfort and a TUF sandwich mesh vamp for increased durability and breathability. It also features a used toe wrap for added stability, multipiece rubber tread pattern for grip and a cement cup sole construction for improved flex, shock absorption and durability. In addition, it incorporates a neoprene and Lycra-based bootie for easy access and strong ankle support.

“I really wanted to push the envelope on what’s considered a skateable shoe,” said Muska. “The Vs are definitely disruptive in the best ways possible.”

The style is available globally at select retailers and online. Three colorways kick off the launch — white, dried herb and black. Each retails for $125. This spring, a series of bold pastels will be added, followed by the fall addition of a series of tonal mixed prints.
