To celebrate the premiere of the final season of LOST tonight, Supra teamed up with ABC to create an exclusive sneaker paying homage to the series. A total of 50 pairs of the ‘LOST’ Vaider were produced and given to cast and crew of the show except for a small run of 17 pairs that will be available to LOST and Supra fans exclusively through Factory 413 later this afternoon. The Supra x LOST package comes complete with a pair of ‘LOST’ Vaiders in white and gold colour featuring cracked leather, ‘Expose’ crew mug, and a numbered copy of an original LOST script signed by writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz.
The theme around the project was centered on the news program ‘Expose’ – a fictional program that appears numerous times throughout the LOST series as a show-within-the-show. In true LOST tradition, the shoes are covered in clues and references taken from the episode in which Expose first appears (the 14th episode of the third season – hence the 17 pairs releasing today). From the ‘Razzle Dazzle’ on the heel to the ‘paralyzing’ insole, fans of the series will be sure to understand the meaning of all the subtle hints included in the shoe’s construction.
More after the jump.
