Supra Flow History
A scion project of the 2002 KR3W Denim Company, Supra came to life in 2006 in South California. It aimed to cater the skateboarding community with shoes that would perfect for them at first but Angel Cabada, the founder of both KR3W Denim Company and Supra, soon realized there was so much more to the industry of sneaker than just the skateboarding community. He realized that there was more to the brand than just being a skateboarding brand.
Translated from Latin, Supra means “above and beyond,” a slogan that the brand has taken to heart and lived by. The arrival of this particular brand to the sneaker industry could not have been any better. Supra came at a time when everyone was looking for something new, something fresh, and something innovative. With a good grasp of what needed to be done, Supra released a slew of trendy sneakers that could be worn beyond the world of skateboarding; Supra began releasing lifestyle sneakers. Slowly, musicians became interested in the brand and started sporting its sneakers. The brand quickly caught onto this and collaborated with world-renowned musicians such as Steve Aoki, and hip-hop artist, Lil Wayne.
With more than a decade of knowledge, expertise and experience under its belt, Supra’s new sneakers have been shaking up the market, and the Supra Flow is set to do another shakedown. Inspired by the Supra Cuba, one of the brands famous silhouettes, the Supra Flow is a sneaker that is a breath of fresh air, being a hybrid slip-on vulcanized low top with optional laces. It’s such a good blend of being a skateboard and lifestyle sneaker; it’s hard to resist not getting a hand on and adding to the collection.
