The German giant and the artistic director of the brand Harmony are collaborating again on the occasion of the Puma x David Obadia sneaker pack.
The pack is composed of two silhouettes both available in two colours. Inspired by the modernist designs of the mid-20th century, this pack offers an artistic vision of the Puma brand’s iconic models. David Obadia’s creations have a timeless and contemporary character in line with the simplicity and spontaneity of his work. For this collaboration, the artist has reworked two emblematic silhouettes from the Puma Running range while maintaining the basic aesthetics of each pair. Thus he creates the RS-1 CC, faithful to the original RS model.
Launched in 1985, the latest version consists of a vintage nylon upper and superimposed suede parts. The first silhouette is available in two colours, Cordovan-Puma and Glacer Gray-Inca Gold, and is based on a midsole with Running System technology.
The second silhouette of this pack is a Puma Crack, originally released during the Summer Games in Mexico in 1968. This pair will be remembered, particularly for Tommie Smith who, on the podium, made one of the most powerful gestures in history by raising his fist in front of thousands of people in protest against racial inequality. The name “Crack” comes from the German language, and describes someone who goes beyond his limits, especially in the world of sport. The Puma Crack is none other than the big sister of the iconic Puma Sweden. 50 years after its first appearance, the Puma Crack is about to make its comeback in a series of classic colours, as well as in a special packaging, created by David Obadia.
The Puma x David Obadia pack will be available on February 12 instore and on the Puma website as well as at a selection of the German brand’s usual dealers.
Another sneaker will make a comeback, the Air Jordan 6 Infrared that Kith honored with a capsule.
