When we were in Berlin in the beginning of the summer in 2011 we sat down with Matt Fontana and his crew from SUPRA to start to work on a project together. During the meeting we saw the first samples of the SUPRA Owen and we felt right away that this was the silhouette we wanted to work on. It was clean, it was something new from SUPRA and it looked great on your feet. We can call it love at first sight!
The different versions of the Owen that we saw where made in mesh and synthetic materials and we felt that we wanted to do something else. We decided to put a leather upper on this lightweight shoe. Well, not just leather, we’re talking premium curry colored full-grain leather. We added some nice details to our Owen like the embossed SNS/SUPRA tongue label, the SNS engraved metal aglets and eyelets, and of course the Tre Kronor (Three Crowns) made of three SUPRA crowns on the back of the tongue to represent Sweden. Included in the package is also a full-grain leather phone case.
