PUMA Suede “Since ’93” Pack
You’re looking at one vibrant throwback pack from PUMA. The classic Suede silhouette, that launched in 1968, gets some early-90’s inspiration to create this October release of the PUMA Suede “Since ’93” Pack. The Suede profile was made popular throughout the decades by athletic greats, like basketball’s Walt “Clyde” Frazier and track’s Tommie Smith, and by gracing the evolving hip-hop culture. It is even regarded as the original b-boy shoe after rising to fame among the break dancing crews. Of course, there have been many changes and renditions of the Suede since it was born into the sneaker industry, but now the original classic model is back but with an exciting and energetic twist in the “Since’93” Pack, which will be available in-store and online.
The dynamic duo of this pack bears bright hues, one in a blazing orange-teal combination, and its counterpart switching it up with a shock green, black and blue color way. Of course, the upper is composed of a smooth suede and features little embossed shapes throughout the shoe to express the old school vibes. This all-over graphic pattern comes from the lining of the original PUMA Disc Blaze from 1993. This animated upper is set atop the iconic stark white outsole, making these retros worth a double take. In addition, continuing the Suede tradition, these “Since ’93” kicks come with three sets of laces, including the throwback fat laces with a matching signature branding.
Mixings of fashion trends throughout the decades can be, either, a bust or a great success that leads to new ins for the future. Let me take the liberty to say that this PUMA Suede “Since ’93” Pack look falls under the category of the latter. PUMA picked and chose from its past to make something that looks different and new, while still being familiar enough to maintain emotional and nostalgic reactions; it’s beautiful and they will both be available at UBIQ Walnut and at UBIQlife.com. More details to come.
