Mexican blanket designs are defiantly not unfamiliar to the sneaker industry. We’ve seen the patterns put to use over the years by everybody from Nike to Vans to New Balance. Even Supra Footwear went South of the Border with their Cinco de Mayo tribute, the Supra Skytop II “Cinco de Drinko”. And apparently that was just the beginning for them.
Gearing up to release later this year is the Supra Thunder “Mexican Blanket” which shames the Skytop II’s in terms of colorfulness. The entire upper, including the tongue, is completely covered with the Mexican blanket material while a white, black pinstriped, rubber sole unit sits beneath. Defiantly a little too vivid for my personal taste but for those who were feeling the Cinco de Drinko Skytop II, these may be right up your alley.
We haven’t an official release at this time but we’ll be sure to keep you posted on any further details. Via: Taobao
