The reawakening of the Puma Boris Becker is complete, as the eponymous tennis legend himself toasted to the re-release of the OG in Melbourne last week. An array of sweet drinks were on deck, including a strawberries and cream cocktail popsicle that almost no men were comfortable enough with their sexuality to try, except for one Sneaker Freaker squad member. There were many super fit guests in the house other than Der Bomber that are also awarded stacks of polymer for running around on grass, including football players and Olympians. And we had DJ Yo Mafia counting the tempo on the ones and twos, dropping some throwback '80s tracks that Becker surely popped bottles to when he was collecting trophies like stamps back, back in the day. Boom Boom Becker also got up on the mic and dropped some lines about the shoe's history, then mingled with guests a little bit, then stood with wifey and watched a projection of highlights from his career – many meta photos were snapped of 'Boris watching Boris', it was a beautiful moment.
Peep the pics from the great night above. The Puma Boris Becker OG is now available at Platypus Shoes and select Puma retailers worldwide. Read our interview with Boris Becker here.
