The 260-page, full-color book is an immense catalog of the influential sneaker company’s designs. SUPRA showcases everything from the early skateboard shoe designs to the rare and limited edition sneakers that became the preferred footwear of some of the world’s top celebrities. For anyone that is a fan of SUPRA, sneaker history, or even pop culture, this book is an essential part of any collection.

“[SUPRA] singlehandedly invented an entirely new breed of sneaker,” Woody, editor of Sneaker Freaker, writes in the book’s foreword, “that jammed fashion, skate, and street together in a way that had no precedence or right to work.”

SUPRA was, and still is, a skateboard footwear company and thus the book includes insightful interviews with many of the team riders who helped create the legendary signature silhouettes that made SUPRA a global sensation, such as Erik Ellington, Jim Greco, Terry Kennedy, Lizard King, Tom Penny, and an extended story with Chad Muska about the origins of the iconic Skytop—the shoe that started it all.

The SUPRA reach has been far and wide, and it’s all included in the SUPRA book. It’s available now at suprafootwear.com.
