Supra Greco History
In 2006, Angel Cabada partnered with professional skateboarders Jim Greco, Chad Muska, Erik Ellington, and Tom Penny to launch the shoe brand Supra. It started as an underground idea that eventually led to much success for the group. The brand is known for releasing signature models from popular skaters. Due to Supra’s use of flamboyant designs and colors, many music artists have also been drawn to the label’s kicks.
Co-founding member and skate legend Jim Greco himself has released several pro models with the brand, such the low-top Supra Greco. It is the 7th signature shoe that he has collaborated on with Supra. For this model, he took inspiration from his passion for vintage dress shoes.
As a result, the sneaker’s silhouette contains the sophisticated design and smooth lines of a dress shoe. It is then combined with the features that a modern skate shoe needs for performance. At its affordable price, this shoe could be an excellent option for transitioning between everyday activities.
- For the shoe’s upper, the seams are turned to enhance durability.
- It has a leather sock-liner that keeps the foot protected.
- A cleatie construction is also used in this model to keep the foot secure and locked-in.
- Another convenient feature is the ultra-thin cup sole, which offers unrivaled board feel and comfort.
