Samantha Ronson x Supra NS Indy


A friend of Supra since their beginnings, Samantha Ronson was offered a chance to create her own rendition of the brand’s Indy NS model for the Fall 2009 season. The shoes are given a black/gold colorway with a distressed suede upper amongst the signature NS platform. These special Indy’s are now available through Factory 413. Additionally, Supra will be throwing an official launch party this Saturday, August 8th, at Angels & Kings in Chicago with a live DJ set by Ms. Ronson and performance by the GZA of Wu-Tang fame. Overall I think Sam could have done a better job. Black and gold is a wildly popular color combination, and I feel that this design is way too simple. As a potential customer, if I wore a black and gold shoe I would want the gold to be placed somewhere unexpected, such as the bottom, to give it an extra kick.
