Supra and pro rider Spencer Hamilton have been working together to bring out fresh skate shoe designs. Spencer's first signature colorway with the crown brand is a traditional black Cuba. It's a slip-on skate shoe dropped in 2016 as part of the Coalition Crown edition. In the same year, Spencer introduced the Supra Flow that showcased a hybrid leather and canvas slip-on arrangement. As an ode to his Canadian roots, the shoe was covered in all-white with red detailing. Two years later, the American label and Canadian skater unveiled the Supra Elevate, presented in blinding white cupsole design that's equipped to offer high-impact support.

Supra, a California-based brand, was formed in 2006 by Angel Cabada, through partnerships with pro skateboarders like Chad Muska, Erik Ellington, and Jim Greco. The brand has been rocking the skate circuit through releases of skate shoes with street-style elements. Some of these kicks are signature models of team riders. Just a year after the establishment of Supra, it launched Chad Muska's flagship signature model, the Skytop. This drop was succeeded by other fast-forward designs with skate-specific construction like the Supra Elevate. 

  • Spencer Hamilton's mug and name are stamped on the footbed, his signature on the tongue.
  • Supra logo detailing is peppered throughout the shoe.
  • It bears the Supra tread pattern that grants grip.
