“The shoe is dope,” Stevie said about the S1W. “It’s so dope I don’t want to skate in it. But even when the laces are torn up and the sole is kickflipped out, it actually looks like a dope shoe.”
Stevie Williams’s first signature shoe from SUPRA, the S1W, is a state-of-the-art expression of contemporary footwear fashion and performance. The mid top combines modern design with traditional accents and is rich in advanced technologies. The stylish upper, for instance, is constructed atop an innovative, cored-out cup sole that features a lightweight SUPRAFOAM footbed with impact protection. The molded footbed is thicker in the heel, yet thinner towards the toe for better board feel. The stylish, side-gill design and cushioned ankle pod, which is perforated for breathability, provide extra protection and support. The padded heel-pull insert delivers both functionality and added comfort.
“Whether you want to wear it just for lifestyle purposes,” Stevie said, “or you want to wear it for skateboarding and look cool at the same time—either way you wear it, the shoe looks good on and off the board.”
“What sets it apart,” Erik Ellington said about his sixth signature shoe from SUPRA, “is if you walk into a store today, pretty much every shoe looks like a slip-on. [The Ellington] has that feeling of being simple, but at the same time it’s got a lot more technical features.”
According to Thrasher Magazine, “The best thing to come outta Napa Valley since Pinot Noir,” is Walker Ryan. They continue to state that, “Walker Ryan is an absolute stud on the stuntwood. Steady stompin’ nollie flips like grapes in a barrel”. Check out the video below and let us know what you think.
