Aren’t you happy other brands are definitely getting into the picture? After PUMA’s push for PUMA Social and FAAS, this is definitely a great way to get the true sneakerheads into the picture. Since April 2011, PUMA and UNDFTD (Undefeated) created a special collection centered around PUMA’s most iconic shoe, the Clyde. If you’ve been following the collection, Undefeated has definitely lent their design and style know-how to the Clyde. They’ve used premium leather and canvas, both materials PUMA has yet to use on the Clyde. For this coming weekend’s release, they are using Ripstop Nylon on four different colorways.
“Undefeated pushes the envelope and is a leader in starting and spotting new trends throughout the sneaker and lifestyle community,” said Jay Piccola, President of PUMA North America. “This partnership allows us to apply these influences to the most significant shoe in PUMA’s archive, the PUMA Clyde, and make it new, fresh and appealing to a whole new set of consumers that we know will adore each and every style.”
“We worked closely with PUMA’s design team, and were very collaborative in every sense of the word,” said Eddie Cruz, Co-Founder of Undefeated. “We shared ideas, brainstormed and pushed each other on the design language because we really wanted to make something great together. The end result of the UNDFTD Collection with PUMA is just that – something great, forward thinking and cool – and we are excited to build on the momentum of this collection for seasons to come.”
On Saturday, September 24, Puma will be dropping the PUMA x UNDFTD NRC (Nylon Ripstop Clyde) Pack at Titan and Crate. There is an open to the public exhibit at the Secret Fresh Gallery from 2pm-10pm. Not only will there be a display of the PUMA x UNDFTD collection, but also the history of the Clyde. You can cop the collection at the Puma pop-up store during the launch or at Titan FORT and Crate (G/F LRI bldg, N.Garcia, Makati). These Clydes retail for 4,950 php. See you all on Saturday at RONAC!
