PUMA celebrates the 50th anniversary of its Suede silhouette. Also on this day in 1968, at the Summer Games in Mexico City, American athlete Tommie Smith broke the 200m world record in PUMA spikes, who then walked to the victory stand carrying a single PUMA Suede on his left hand.
To honor the PUMA Suede silhouette, they are having a year long celebration through 2018 and is partnering with different legends in the field of music, fashion, and pop culture to introduce 50 different drops of the silhouette.
Obviously, the first collaboration starts with PUMA’s superstar athlete Tommie Smith.
