SUPRA announced last June its collaboration with American rapper Lil Wayne, here is the first model colab, a new Stevie Williams S1W with a colorway by Lil Wayne. The collab represents not only the friendship between Wayne and Stevie, but also a synthesis of skateboarding and hip hop.
“I asked Wayne if he wanted to do a colorway with my shoe,” Stevie said, “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.”
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.

“It’s dope,” said Lil Wayne about the collaboration. “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.”
