Just because Supra does not release basketball shoes, doesn’t mean they can’t get apart of the action. Sitting down with Bun B and H-Town Sneaker Summit, the three will release the Supra H-Town Trill Star Pack.
In the Supra H-Town Trill-Star Pack is the S1W, Stevie Williams signature shoe representing the East (blue) and the Stacks, Terry Kennedy’s sneaker in red for the West.
When Bun B was asking about his involvement with the H-Town Sneaker Summit he said:
“My involvement,” has been purely as a supporter of this movement of guys who like sneakers, girls who like sneakers, kids who like sneakers, and families who like sneakers. And it’s in a comfortable and safe environment for like-minded people to come together and talk about, and show, and look at the things that they love, you know, which are shoes—some classics, some new—it’s an incredible place to meet new people and I’ve always enjoyed the experience.”
Bryan Angelle who founded H-Town Sneaker Summit and had his input on the two shoes said:
“Originally when we talked about the project,” “Matt [Fontana, SUPRA VP] brought out the S1W and the Society, which is the TK high, right? I said, no, we gotta do the Stacks. That’s what the Summit is: it’s about trying to offer something for everybody. So I wanted to have a high top and a low top. And then since we were releasing it All-Star weekend, it was Bun’s idea for it be about the East vs. the West. And we pay homage to Bun on the tongues of each shoe: they say ‘Trill Kennedy’ and ‘Stevie Trilliams.’”
The SW1 East features blue leather, blue pig suede, padded blue mesh lining, ice sole, custom East sock liner and “Stevie Trilliams” on the tongue.
The Stacks has “Trill Kennedy” on the tongue, red leather, red pig suede, basketball inspired toe box, red mesh lining, ice sole, custom West sock liner and gold accents.
Releasing Sunday, February 17th from 3pm-7pm at the H-Town Sneaker Summit. You can also grab the Supra H-Town Trill-Star pack at Uprise (Chicago), Factory 413 (Los Angeles), Supra NYC (New York), Alive and Well (Seattle) and Nice Kicks (Auston).
