PUMA and Santa Cruz Celebrate 50 Years of Suede
PUMA and Santa Cruz are following their 2008 First Round Hi collaboration with another screaming sneaker. This time, they're linking up to celebrate 50 years of the Suede — a sneaker that stepped off the basketball court to permeate a breadth of subcultures. Some adopted the shoe for its style, but others eyed-up the Suede’s durable uppers, facilitating its transition from hardwood to plywood.
Honouring that pedigree, Santa Cruz’s colab pairs the Suede with one of skating’s best-known symbols: Jim Phillips Sr’s 1985 ‘Screaming Hand’ design. The logo is embroidered in the heel, while the scream itself is represented in red lines billowing across the midfoot.
The Santa Cruz x PUMA Suede ‘Screaming Hand’ will be available in PUMA accounts any minute; check your local for availability.
