The Marathon Continues and PUMA Celebrate Nipsey Hussle's Legacy with the RS-X3 and Ralph SampsonRelease: 17 December 2021
The Marathon Clothing and PUMA's ongoing tribute to the late, great Nipsey Hussle is continuing with new kicks inspired by his 'The Marathon' mixtape and a footwear and apparel capsule dubbed 'The Hussle Way | Mogul' that's inspired by his entrepreneurial spirit. Though Hussle passed in 2019, his influence is still felt in the world of hip-hop and his Los Angeles hometown, so each piece serves as a wearable tribute.
'The Marathon' mixtape served as Hussle's breakout project when it was released in 2010 and is represented by a duo of new takes on the RS-X3. Arriving in black and white, both shoes feature premium leather and suede construction, specially branded details and a vivid red toebox.
Elsewhere, 'The Hussle Way | Mogul' consists of a new take on the Ralph Sampson plus a special tracksuit. The former is dressed in a dark navy shade that PUMA calls 'peacoat' and features special gold detailing. The latter is inspired by the custom-designed Groovey Lew tracksuit Hussle was often spotted in the lead-up to 'Victory Lap', his 2018 magnum opus, and is also accompanied by a collaborative T-shirt.
You can expect all these The Marathon Clothing x PUMA pieces to release on the PUMA webstore December 17. The RS-X3s are priced at $150, while the Ralph Sampson and its corresponding apparel range in price from $40-$95.
