Hypebeast Crew teamed up with German brand Puma offering us the ‘Hypebeast x PUMA “The Dim Sum Project” Blaze of Glory OG & LTWT’ pack inspired by the Hong Kong food culture.
For anybody familiar with Dim Sum, Har Gao (shrimp dumplings) and Siu Mai (pork dumplings) are mainstays of any outing and are integrated into the aesthetics of the white “Har Gao” Blaze of Glory LTWT and the yellow “Siu Mai” Blaze of Glory OG.
The “Har Gao” version features a subtle shrimp camo beneath a thin translucent layer, mimicking the wrapper skin of a Har Gao. Furthermore, the “Siu Mai” is a more simple affair with high quality suede and leather clad in a tonal yellow that also represents the wrapper of a Siu Mai.
The Hypebeast x PUMA “The Dim Sum Project” Blaze of Glory OG & LTWT pack will release on Wednesday, May 8 at 12 pm EST through the Hypebeast Store with a retail price of $155 USD each, or both pairs for $300 USD. Each pair comes with a custom dustbag and specially created pair of commemorative chopsticks. An APAC-region release will take place on Friday, May 10 and globally through select doors on Friday, May 17.
