Supra goes to the big city with the Suprawood variant on its Vaider shoe. We’re worried about the Vaider. Ever since getting to Suprawood, it’s been not returning our calls, staying out late, and hanging with a bad crowd. Last week we spotted its badass star-perforated uppers on Cobrasnake, doing shots with Steve Aoki. We hear TMZ has a tape of its beautiful gold accents doing terrible things. We just want Suprawood to come back home to FACTORY 413, who tell us that they’re expecting to see this starstruck shoe on April 24th, 2010.

"We went to London to tell the story of pirate radio – secret urban studios that transmit music from concrete tower blocks to the city, and met with DJs, and station managers, rappers and MCs. We met with DJ Scratcha from RINSE FM, MC Flirt from old school KOOL FM, J2k, Jammer, and Logan Sama. We uncovered how they stay underground and away from the authorities, while still setting the new music standard across London. We sailed to the source, where it all started – massive concrete and steel forts that sit at the mouth of the Thames River. We met the people who pioneered the spirit of pirate, and played the music that London wanted to hear. They set the standard, and when the authorities shut them down, pirate sounds went into the urban underground."
Super Dope fly futuristic shit you can love to. Partake!
