August 24, 2010 5:00:00 PM PDT

Gourmet Footwear keeps pumping out fresh styles. Their latest offering that has been receiving a lot of attention is Gourmet "The 28". It features a huge smoothed out air bubble outsole, which was modified from the Nike Cortez-like tread used on the popular Quadici model. The 28 also sports a chukka-style upper, which many think was inspired by Clarks and visvim, mesh wrapping around the ankle, and leather laces.

Supra Bullet Tie Dye

May 18, 2010 5:00:00 PM PDT

Supra Footwear has been doing quite a good job at maintaining a nice stream of solid releases. Supra dropped a few tonal canvas version's of the Bullet which were nice, but obviously didn't include any sort of outlandish design or premium fabrics which many Supra fans have come to love with releases like the Tie Dye Skytops or animal print Supra NS models. The Supra Bullet "Tie Dye" skateboard shoe which looks to be a suede based Bullet features a black and white tie dye pattern throughout the entire upper, a style which has become one of the most popular within the Supra line, most notably on the Skytops. With the incorporation of the tie dye pattern the Supra Bullet skateboard shoe becomes one of the most loudest releases yet.

Supra Strapped 2

April 26, 2010 5:00:00 PM PDT

Supra continues to add to its non-skate sector. In addition to the Assault and the Cuttler, Supra will also unleash the newly-designed Supra Strapped II. Supra's Strapped model, which debuted around this time last year, is Steve Aoki's signature lifestyle shoe. The second version of Steve Aoki's signature sneaker obviously possesses a few different design elements from its predecessor. First off, the silhouette as a whole contains a higher cut than the Strapped. Also, the Supra Strapped II lifestyle shoe owns a lower-profile vulcanized sole than the original Strapped. On the contrary, Supra stayed with the four-strap midfoot design giving the shoe the most distinctive look in regards to the structure of this shoe. The Supra Strapped II is eloquently balancing the line between tennis shoe and casual shoe., Shoes  Retail, Norwalk, CA
