#SNEAKERHEADS: PUMA Brings Fresh Vibe with Moroccan Oasis-Inspired Pack


PUMA takes us to Morocco for a sneaker pack inspired by the grandiose gardens created in the 1920’s by French painter, Jacques Majorelle. Famous for its marble fountains, raised pathways and luxurious vegetation, the garden is composed and coloured like a painting. Many of the features were painted in a rich and vibrant blue with yellow and green hints, creating a perfect harmony with the soil, climate and plants. After years of neglect, the garden was taken over and restored in the 1980’s. It is now one of the most visited sites in Morocco and hosts an archeologic museum, as well as the Islamic Art Museum of Marrakech.



PUMA applies the many vibrant colours of the garden to two classic styles, the Blaze of Glory (R2 299) and Clyde (R2 499). Both shoes feature a plush, nubuck upper in vibrant blue with perforated details that adds texture and provides breathability. The upper is complimented by an all-white midsole. Look a little closer at both styles and you can see that the outsoles as well as the footbeds are detailed with a tiling pattern that symbolizes the traditional Moroccan tiles that adorn the garden.



The PUMA MJRL pack is available at PUMA SELECT Bree Street, Cape Town and Braamfontein, Johannesburg and X-Trend Stores.
