Notable Features

With its water repellent leather upper, the Supra Oakwood is appropriate for any weather, whether rain or shine. Its hiking-inspired outsole also provides optimal support and comfort for various terrains. The upper has a straightforward design that is reminiscent of outerwear cleats. Other practical features include a leather mudguard that blocks dirt and a gusseted tongue that keeps the shoe free of debris.

There’s a zipper on the sneaker’s medial side that allows easy wearing. A pull tab helps in sliding the foot inside. There are also metal hooks for the laces to enable convenient access to the model’s interior, which is lightly padded for comfort. Supra branding can be found on the heel and tongue. The brand’s trademark crown can also be seen near the midsole at the side of the heel.

Supra Oakwood History

Launched in 2006, American footwear brand Supra was founded by Angel Cabada along with a few professional skateboarders. The company grew from an underground idea into an explosive business that has made its mark in the skateboarding world and beyond. With a goal of creating innovative skate shoes, the Los Angeles-based company looked towards the styles of its skate team on and off the board.

As a result, Supra shoes are well-balanced in terms of function and looks, creating versatile kicks that are ready for hitting the skate park or the streets. With such collaborations as with Jay-Z, Steve Aoki, and Lil Wayne, it’s clear that the brand is interested in different cultures and fashions beyond skateboarding. Many legendary models from the company’s catalog have been well received for such conjunctions.

One model which follows this trend of balancing between style and practicality is the high-top Supra Oakwood. It’s a hiking-inspired sneaker that combines the look of a premiere high-cut shoe with the performance of rugged outerwear. This sneaker’s water-resistant material and dirt repellent features enable the wearer to do more and go anywhere in any weather.

At the same time, its cleat structure and smooth style are ideal for everyday wear. It has trademark Supra details that elevate the shoe to urban sophistication. It’s perfect for men and women who are looking for a different high-top style that will also provide all the comfort and support that they need for daily activities.
