Bobbito Garcia is your favourite sneakerhead’s favourite sneakerhead. The dude is a revered source of sneaker knowledge who quite literally wrote the history of New York sneaker culture.
Here, PUMA honour him with a colab on two sneakers: a PUMA Clyde and Suede Mid. To complement the notable OG silhouettes, Garcia has dressed the shoes in tones redolent of the retro era. The Clyde is covered in grey-blue with a disrupting olive green Form Stripe, above which ‘GUARD UP’ is printed in gold. The Suede Mid has the same green Form Stripe slashing an upper of dark brown suede – and the title of Garcia’s last book, Where’d You Get Those, is printed on the medial heel.
The Bobbito x PUMA pack is available now from Politics.
