Right as the skinny jean era was booming, Supra took a chance with an all-gold high-top for its head-skater-in-charge Chad Muska. The result? A shitload of metallic sneakers populating the streets. The Skytop immediately became a favorite for rappers like Lil Wayne, and blew up even more when it was erronessly reported that Jay-Z wore them in Rihanna's "Umbrella" video. More than any celebrity co-sign, the sneaker represented Muska's knack for flossing with clothing items that stood out. The Skytop would go on to have a bunch of different successful colorways, but this was the exact model that set the whole craze off.
