"I don't want to look like everybody else," says Prodigy of Mobb Deep in the promotional clip for his new Backwood and Bandit collaborations with Supra.
The Backwood is shown in a grey-scale camouflage color way that is inspired by Mobb Deep's early affinity for army attire. The boot-like look also references the New York centric tradition of work boot fashion. The Bandit is more sneaker than boot, but also draws on the camouflage style. However, with a white trim on the sole, The Bandit has a cleaner, more refined style.
The collaboration with Prodigy of Mobb Deep and Supra is another step in the colliding worlds of hip hop and skate culture. With Supra being a long established skater brand, it is fitting they collaborated with Prodigy of Mobb Deep who is a veteran in hip hop.
