Mobb Deep’s Prodigy Designs Supra Sneakers [PHOTOS]
The status of Mobb Deep may be in limbo, but Prodigy is still making moves. The “Keep It Thoro” rapper recently linked with footwear and apparel company Supra and added his design touch to a couple of the brand’s sneaker models.
P hooked up the Backwood and the Bandit models with an Infamous aesthetic. The latter features a black ballistic nylon (and green camo) upper on top of a white outsole while the former features black/grey arctic camo on the upper, a SUPRAFOAM midsole and a rubber lug outsole. While the Bandit is a sneaker (it’s pro skater Tom Penny’s signature shoe), the Backwood is more in the boot/sneaker hybrid lane.
Both styles will be available at the usual Supra retailers shortly and are available online now. Check out Prodigy talking about his Supra collaboration below . “That’s just how I am, I don’t want to look like everybody else,” says Prodigy. “I want people to look at me like, ‘Oh, what he got on?’ Follow my trend. Supra just goes right along with my whole style and I like to bring something new to the table.”
Earlier this year, Supra announced a forthcoming collaboration with Lil Wayne. Check out images of the Mobb Deep pack of kicks in the gallery. You coppin’ a pair?
