This kick's streamlined upper features a dual texture that is constructed from suede and canvas. Its clean one-piece toe design is purposefully utilized for fewer seam blowouts during skateboarding.

The shoe is also equipped with the brand's Suprafoam insole for added in-step protection and comfort. Finally, it all sits on top of a vulcanized sole that offers flexibility and great board feel.
Supra started out in 2006 and was founded by long-time skater Angel Cabada with several other pro skaters namely Chad Muska, Jim Greco, and Erik Ellington. The brand was created initially for manufacturing sneakers for skateboarding but it got the attention of famous musicians due to its stylish colorways and sleek designs. Some notable individuals who were spotted rocking a pair of Supras were Jay Z, Steve Aoki, Lil Wayne, and Justin Bieber.
Cabada had an idea to create a footwear brand to provide sneakers that would go well with his clothing business called KR3W, but more importantly, he was motivated to take the sneaker game up a level. Hence, the name ‘Supra,' which loosely translates to "above and beyond" in Latin.
One of the brand's casual-inspired offerings is the Supra Stacks Vulc II, an offspring of the Stacks II. This kick's outsole, as its name suggests, has a vulcanized construction while maintaining a contemporary skate style.
