Rapper Lil Wayne and SUPRA team up to produce the Chimera, a fitting name to say the least. What the shoe doesn’t say with its relatively simple colorway choices it makes up for big time with its shape. The shoe features a super-sized heel and midsole panel as well as a hefty padded tongue. Adding to the hodgepodge implications of its namesake is the variety of materials used across different colorways. For example, the tonal black edition uses mostly synthetic materials while the grey edition incorporates suede onto its side panels. By far the sleekest of the three, the white and pink edition uses a combination of smooth and pebbled leather. For a closer look at the Chimera and its different styles, check out Sneaker Freaker’s Issue 27 here.
