While all of skateboarding collectively anticipates Stevie’s next video part, we have our eyes on his next pro model for Supra Footwear. Since his S1W model, so much has changed in skateboarding. Many people aren’t quite as understanding of a paneled toe cap so Stevie took towards the direction of a one piece toe cap. As an ambassador of paneled toe caps, it pains us to see another pro’s 90’s preferences bite the dust. Before he was seen skating in his DC pro models and later in Nike SB Dunks, Stevie skated the most beloved paneled toe cap of all time. How much longer before the tides change and we get those priceless panels back? Kinda sick of the deco stitching illusion…more distracting than anything.
His new pro model, the Estaban, is due out for Fall of 2014. With not much time between then and now (yes, we’re trying to get a Stevie episode), the marketing campaign for this shoe should be debuting soon. Video part, a stylish front nose ad or all of the above, we’re looking forward to this shoe.
From the few details that have leaked, the shoe is sitting on top of the famous Skytop 3 sole. Many agree that since that particular sole has been discontinued, along with the Skytope 3, much of Supra’s skateboarding appeal has faded along with it. Obviously we couldn’t be happier to see it back in production considering our results from skating in it. Aside from the fashion-forward appeal, we believe the Estaban to be a hit in the making. Not only do they look great to skate in but they also accommodate the casual side of things. Also, you can notice the notable unique lacing system. Lace high to reduce the chance of ripping laces or use the lower option for a more stylish effect.
We have no confirmation on a price as of yet but if we had to guess, the Estaban could easily go for $85-95 or higher. If they’re like the Skytop 3’s in terms of durability, the price is more than justified.
