SUPRA Releases “S1W” Sneakers By Lil Wayne & Stevie Williams

SUPRA have just released their new footwear called “S1W“, which is a collaboration shoe from Stevie Williams and Lil Wayne. In the video above, Weezy F Baby speaks on his new sneakers, how it feels to be involved in a shoe with Stevie Williams, and goes skating at a skate park with the SUPRA team.

“I asked Wayne if he wanted to do a colorway with my shoe and he said he was up for it. Just supporting Wayne skateboarding, and having his name on my shoe, it just shows how big this skateboarding thing is. I’m excited about it.” – Stevie Williams

“It’s dope, it’s super dope. Stevie’s a legend, so to even be involved in anything Stevie’s doing is crazy, man—and then to be part of his shoe? Come on, man.” – Lil Wayne

The high-performance S1W mid top is lavishly constructed with red pig suede and red full-grain leather. The shoe has custom “PRESIDENT” (left) and “CARTER” (right) sock liners, white accents, padded red mesh lining and tongue, and it’s built atop a white, lightweight, cored-out sole that features a new SUPRAFOAM footbed with impact technology.
