PUMA x Bobbito Garcia

August 12, 2016

As we begin to move in to the new season, PUMA present two appropriately Autumnal reworks for AW16, as they link up with world-renowned DJ and sneaker icon Bobbito Garcia to put his creative direction towards the PUMA Suede Mid and PUMA Clyde low silhouettes.

Drawing influencer from Bobbito’s various life inspirations including playground basketball and street culture, both pairs arrive with a premium suede applied to the entirety of the upper, all the way through to the tongue and formstripe branding. Utilising earthy tones such as grey and olive greens on the Clyde, and a rich brown colour application on the Suede Mid, each pair sits on top of a stark white sole unit and is accented with subtle gold foil branding. Referencing Garcia’s ‘Where’d You Get Those? New York City’s Sneaker Culture: 1960- 1987’ book, the words ‘Where’d You Get Those?’ have been etched in to the heel of the Suede Mid, while the Clyde’s feature “Guard Up” embossed into the medial, both in a contrasting gold print.

The PUMA x Bobbito Garcia will be landing in store on Saturday 13th of August at 08:00am Be sure to follow our social media pages for regular updates on releases and news from within the store. You can check out our current range from PUMA HERE
