PRESS: PUMA States x Denim Sneaker


The PUMA States has a legacy of funk beats and fanfare stitched into its signature sole - with a tongue that speaks the strongest of British slang. In the 80s, the PUMA Suede became the 'it' shoe on the hip hop scene in New York City. As the music moved across the pond, the style did, too. 

The Suede cleared its passport papers and debuted in the UK, aptly re-christened 'The States' after its birthplace. Through the 90s, the States was adopted by UK trainer aficionados and football fans hollering from the terraces. It was also spotted sticking to the floor of many an acid jazz club.

The States X Denim retains its predecessors' slim last, slick style, and hip hop roots, but opts for premium, lux denim rather than suede. Antique copper foil and hardware sit atop this refreshed silhouette, making it newest and best State of choice for khakis and smooth moves.





The States x Denim will be available in PUMA stores in November 2012 and will retail for R999.
