Do You Approve Of Lil Wayne’s SUPRA Chimera Sneakers?
Lil Wayne and SUPRA are officially in business. After months and months and months of rumors and speculation, Weezy and SUPRA held a launch party in Miami last week to celebrate Spectre, the new line that Wayne and SUPRA are collaborating on. And all we have to say is that it’s about damn time! We’ve been waiting for this line to drop for awhile now, so it’s good to see that it’s finally getting off the ground. But we have to admit: We’re not really sure about the first offering from the line. In fact, we’re a little bit worried about the direction that Wayne and SUPRA are headed after seeing the first official Spectre sneaker, the Lil Wayne x SUPRA Chimera.
As you can clearly see, Wayne and SUPRA wanted to make a statement with their first collaborative sneaker. So they pulled out all the stops with their head-turning, high-top sneaker. And we do mean all the stops. The SUPRA Chimera features a crazy design on the heel of the sneaker, an oversized padded tongue, and a super chunky midsole that features SUPRA’s patented SupraFoam. All in all, there is a whole hell of a lot going on within this sneaker and we’re really not sure what to make of it just yet. We know Wayne can be a pretty weird dude. But is this what all of his SUPRA sneakers are going to look like?
For now, we’ll assume that Wayne and SUPRA wanted to come out swinging by creating a sneaker built to grab attention. Hopefully, their next collaboration won’t be quite as bold as this one and will be a little more, er, “normal.” It’s not that we don’t appreciate the risks that Wayne and SUPRA took here. It’s just that we don’t see ourselves copping a pair of these when they drop on Friday, May 17.
What do you think about the Wayne x SUPRA Chimera sneaker? Are you planning on picking up a pair? Or do you think Wayne has officially lost his damn mind? Check out some additional photos of the Chimera below and then let us know.
