The Suede 50 party keeps it poppin’ as Global Sports Brand Puma, honours its hip-hop heritage, with the Suede 50 Breakdance Cities Pack.
The silhouette broke into the breakdance toolkit in the ‘80s as the culture bubbled all over New York. With its plush suede, cool colour ways and thick rubber soles with grip that doesn’t slip on dance floors, cardboard and concrete, it became a B-boy and B-girl style essential #ForAllTime.
The Suede 50 Breakdance Cities Pack pays respect to the four most influential breakdancing cities worldwide: New York, Berlin, Paris, and Seoul. Puma give props to these cities that has kept B-boy culture alive, tracing back to the Bronx, its birthplace, across the pond in Paris where the subculture went onto mainstream media then finding the breaks in Berlin. Eventually, the culture permeated to the Far East, making a major splash in Seoul.
In distinct colour ways, each Suede Classic is embossed with a graphic treatment that celebrates its respective city and each pair has a matching tee. All come in junior, preschool and infant sizes as well. Complementing the kicks are Breakdance Tees each bearing the city name.
Suede Classic New York is all swag in a plush orange suede upper and Formstripe with blue lining that pops while keeping it classic atop a thick white sole. The fat laces come in orange, white and blue, add the gold 1968 lace locks are they’re certified fresh. Suede Classic Paris keeps it clean with a blue suede upper, liner and Formstripe to sit pretty on the chunky white sole. Set it off with fat laces in white, blue and red set in place nicely in gold lace locks. Suede Classic Berlin is bold in a red suede upper and a black liner on that big white sole. Fat laces (black, red, yellow) are eye-catching with the gold lace locks. Suede Classic Seoul is refined and ready with a birch suede upper and liner atop that timeless sole. Fat laces (birch, white and blue) are polished with the lace locks.
