The PUMA Suede made its debut back in 1968 at the Mexico Olympics as the shoe of choice for sprinter and civil rights advocate Tommie Smith. Ahead of the sneaker's 50-year anniversary next year, Japanese retailer Billy's have teamed up with the Big Cat to rework this iconic silhouette. And, as the Suede approaches the big 5-0, it's decided to let its hair down and leave the laces at home. Donning a black and silver colourway, this laceless make-up also features a durable rubber sole and reinforced stitching throughout the upper.
The Billy's x PUMA Suede 'S' Model will release through Billy's online store and at select international retailers on September 15. This is a limited release, so act quickly if you want to get in on this Suede celebration.
