Since the passing of Michael Jackson on June 25th, 2009 we have seen quite a few tributes to the King of Pop in the sneaker industry. No company has actually released a tribute design to the King but numerous sneaker customizers have laid down their skills on various templates to bang out sneakers carrying designs inspired by the iconic fashion style of Michael Jackson. Back in June, a day after the passing of Michael Jackson, our friend Matt from Sole Brother hit up us to tell us that hes getting getting a ton of requests for Michael Jackson tribute sneakers and that him and his team would be designing a pair of Thriller inspired Supra Supranos.
Finally we can now give you a glimpse at the final design. Ever since the Thriller video debuted on December 3rd, 1983 the glossy red leather jacket which Michael wore has become a sought after item for Jackson fans around the globe. When speaking about Thriller, or even thinking about the video, its hard not to picture Jackson dancing in the streets, doing his signature dance moves in that bright red leather jacket. I have to admit, even i wanted one as a young kid in the late 80s. The Supra Suprano with Sole Brother designed sticks to the theme of that very jacket with a glossy upper in a red and black color scheme. As some added features Sole Bother printed Thriller across the strap of the sneakers and added MJ’s initials to the heel as well as his life span, 1958-2009.
The King of Pop may be gone but he will forever be remember through his family, friends, fans and artwork like this. If your interested in the Supra Supra ‘Thriller’ custom sneakers hit up Sole Brother Customs now to put in your order. Act fast though cause sizes are limited.
