R.I.P Supra
« on: September 25, 2019, 12:45:51 PM »
A little bird flew upon my windowsill and ever so gently mentioned to me that, sadly, Supra is to be no longer.

200 + employees informed of their immediate termination during lunch compliments of KSwiss. Highly vexing and very unfortunate.

Really hope not true. I know they're not to everyone's tastes but some of their shoes are sick. I've had quite a few pairs over the years. Best quality shoes. They last forever. I've got some Cuba slip ons that I've been almost wearing every day for three years no joke. Still not worn through the bottom

I was with some homies over at the DC Stevie Williams shoe release in LA a week or two ago and overheard industry heads saying the same thing while i was there

definitely didn't expect it seeing as how well their spring 20 catalog was executed, it seemed like they were about to start killing it again. Looks like the Muska 2000 will never see the light of day

Maybe they're riding it out until the end of Holiday since that's about to drop and production likely already happened? I heard that the layoffs happened a week or two ago so they probably already had plans for lizards shoe regardless?

If these niche brands are lucky & good enough to establish an identity they're never able to evolve beyond it.

There was an interview with TK, when he was a plumber. He got asked if he gets recognized on the job and his response was "No. Plumbin in disguise." Everyone on SLAP thought he said "put him in the sky"

I'm sure TK saw this coming a mile away

Supra's IG pages tell a different story tho...Not dismissing your OP...yo how in the fuck are there 200+ employees at Supra? That sounds like overseas factory staff? Maybe US staff idk...lunch for 200+ people to tell them they're getting fired is hard to picture.

I think he meant it was during their lunch...

Also I couldn't even give away my pair of grecos so that just shows how people react to supra.

That's not how I interpret "lunch compliments of Kswiss." I can't imagine corporate US staff, 200+ people eating lunch together at the same time, they would need a huge cafeteria at corporate, which is weird af. Factory workers in China or wherever the shoes are made eating at the same time makes a lot more sense. If they're made in China, they could be producing out of a different country to avoid tariffs.

I always thought they sold enough Skytops to keep the company going . And they always have interesting riders imho.

I've never been shy about being a fan o' their shoes and team, just today I was talking on here  about the red Cuba's i got. If this is true I'll be very sad to see them go, their shoes have always fit and worked well for me. Wearing white Hammers RN.
I'm going to argue that Placebo owes their entire career to a Canadian dude's skate video part. Appleyard should be getting royalties for this shit.

If you put the Deathwish logo on a pair of shoes you've manufactured well you know how it goes.

Christ man I think you're reading too much into the wording. It's a post on a message board not an official press release. I got more bad news for you, a little bird didn't actually ever so gently tell him the news either. Sorry.
