Good news! The first two pairs of shoes from Supra Footwear’s collaboration with The Hunger Games are now available for purchase. Boasting two different colours and styles, tributes can choose to support the rebels or the Capitol depending on what sneakers they buy.
On The Capitol Skytop IV sneakers, Supra says:
Representing the extravagance of Panem’s ruling class is the Capitol Couture Skytop IV. In a white upper of supple, full-grain leather, the shoe rests atop a metallic silver SUPRAFOAM midsole and white rubber outsole. Molded rubber Capitol branding adorns the tongue while black leather provides interior comfort.
These District 13 Vaider shoes are described on the website as:
a combination of matte black nubuck, black SUPRATUF, and black carbon fiber-embossed SUPRATUF reminiscent of the chest protectors worn by the rebel warriors of District 13. Tonal mockingly details adorn the heel quarter, and flame print mesh supplies interior padding. The shoe rests upon a traditional black vulcanized sole with white foxing.
I’m not too big of a fan of these types of sneakers in general, but at least now we know that it’s cheaper to be a rebel!
Do remember: this is only their “first release”, so I expect more shoes will be made available closer to the release of the film. If you definitely want to buy a pair, but aren’t too sure about these first two styles that have been revealed, just wait a bit to see if they release something closer to your own personal style. 🙂
What do you think? Will you be getting a pair?
