German Sports Brand Puma celebrates 50 years of the ‘Suede’ ushering in unique drops that represent the varied cultures that the iconic sneaker has been a significant part of – from music, fashion, street and pop culture. This month, the party kicks it with the B-Boy Pack.
It may have started as a warm-up shoe, but the Suede got busy off the court when hip-hop was born in the Bronx. Smooth suede, fly colourways and a rubber outsole for grip: an instant B-boy essential. The Suede danced in the streets and hit stages around the world, remixed by new school legends solidifying its status as certified fresh #ForAllTime.
To pay homage to B-boy culture, Puma introduces the B-Boy capsule pack that consists of PUMA Suedes, T7 Track Suits, Tees and Accessories in OG styles and colourways.
Guys, girls and kids can gear up in three colourways. Fellas can pick from Black, Flame Scarlet and Forrest Green-Peacoat. Fly girls can choose from Red Dahlia, Spiced Coral and Blue Indigo while kids can kick it in Black, Flame Scarlet and Forrest Green. All B-boy Suedes come with the trademark thick grippy rubber outsoles perfect for power moves in dance battles. Fat laces fastened by gold name-plate locks make these babies legit breaker material. The kicks arrive in a special edition Suede 50 shoebox with metallic gold details and branding.
To compliment the sneakers and make a bold statement, the pack comes with the iconic PUMA T7 Tracksuit in Black and Flame Scarlet with signature 7-inch stripe down the side. The Suede Name Plate and Laced Tee give serious hip-hop swag. A mean Bucket Hat, a stuntin’ staple Suede Cap and classy Suede Backpack make the B-boy uniform complete.
Get the B-Boy Suedes and gear at FootAsylum from November 16th.

NikeLab has partnered with the Japanese designer brand COMME des GARÇONS to recreate a classic Nike silhouette and following its showcase at the COMME des GARÇONS Homme Plus show last October, the “invisible” Nike Lab Dunk Hi is finally being released.
Dubbed the ‘invisible shoes’, the Dunk Hi appears to draw inspiration from Hans Christian Andersen’s cult classic tale about a sorely misled emperor in search of a new wardrobe. The new release aims to address the common misconception that invisibility and transparency are one in the same.
An edgy mix of black leather and clear PVC paired with accents of comfort foam, the shoes are designed with holes for ventilation to ensure maximum breathability. While not completely “invisible,” the side panels and toebox of this NikeLab Dunk Hi allow for some serious look at what’s inside, so be careful when choosing your socks in the morning. What’s great about this feature is, this transparent look allows for those crazy patterned pairs in your drawer to shine through.
The collaboration with COMME des GARÇONS is the second basketball collaboration from Nike this month, released exclusively at the COMME des GARÇONS store in New York.
