The Suede hit the scene in 1968 and has been changing the game ever since. From the courts to the curbs, from ‘80s b-boys to today’s hustlers, it’s been worn by the icons of every generation – and it’s stayed classic through it all. Its style? Legendary. Its attitude? Unwavering. The Suede is for all time.
In honor of the Suede’s 50th anniversary, Puma is releasing exclusive Suedes over the course of the year. Our collaborators: the legends of the music world, the streets, the fashion industry, and pop culture. Robert “Bobbito” Garcia has been a major player in the NYC street scene since the early ‘90s. A DJ, a basketball culture expert, and a streetwear connoisseur, he brings authenticity and street cool to everything he touches. His take on the classic Suede appears in OG PUMA colors, with his signature stamped at the heel and “WHERE’D YOU GET THOSE?” embroidered at the insole. Both colors of the Puma Suede Classic x Bobbito releases May 12 at selected retailers such as Hanon.
