The Suede 50 campaign has another new release as Puma honors its hip-hop heritage with the Suede 50 Breakdance Cities Pack.
The Suede 50 Breakdance Cities pack pays respect to the four most influential breakdancing cities worldwide: New York, Berlin, Paris, and Seoul. Puma says it is “giving props” to these cities that has kept B-boy culture alive, tracing back to the Bronx, its birthplace, across the ocean 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.
The silhouette broke into the breakdance toolkit in the 1980s as the culture bubbled all over New York. With its plush suede, cool colorways and thick rubber soles with grip that doesn’t slip on dancefloors, cardboard and concrete, it became a B-boy style staple.
In four distinct colorways, each Suede Classic is embossed with a graphic treatment that celebrates its respective city and each pair has a matching T-shirt.
Suede Classic New York is 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.
The Suede 50 Breakdance Cities Pack is available in all Puma stores and select sneaker retailers across the GCC.
