Supra Footwear introduces its new line of boots with two rugged, yet modern interpretations of a classic boot silhouette: The Douglas, and the Skyboot.
The Douglas is a powerful outdoor boot constructed with a waterproof, full-grain leather that ensures your feet remain warm and dry. The boot’s strength is enhanced with heavy gauge stitching, tough metal eyelets, and woven rope laces. The Douglas is built atop a heavy-duty Skywalk® lug outsole for added durability and the interior features a gusseted tongue to keep the weather out, a flexible neoprene lining and neoprene collar.
The Skyboot is inspired by the popular Skytop silhouette, and, like the Douglas, is also built atop a durable Skywalk® lug outsole. The heavy weight moccasin-style stitching around the toe box conveys a traditional boot heritage, while the distinct lines of the Skytop are nicely integrated into the upper pattern. Raw leather laces complement the sturdy eyelets and trim. The gusseted tongue protects the foot from inclement weather, the polyurethane sock liner provides all day cushioning, and the internal tongue “stash pocket” keeps valuables safe and dry.
Overall a strong entrance by Supra into the boot market. It makes totally sense in our opinion. Personally we are not big fans of the Skyboot, but we do really like the Douglas.
For Fall 2011, the Douglas comes in three styles, and the Skyboot comes in five. Supra boots are now available at SUPRA retailers worldwide.
