Danny Ainge Wants A Drop Of Terry Rozer’s PUMA ‘Drip’

Taking full advantage of the NBA’s removal of color restrictions on sneakers, Celtics guard Terry Rozier played in the bright “Red Blast” iteration of the PUMA Clyde Court Disrupt in Boston’s 115-112 win over the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday.

For Rozier, wearing such bright shoes was just all part of his “drip.” Plus Rozier could care less if you don’t like his kicks because he’s going to keep doing what he wants to do.

“I’m trying to have some drip, come out with some drip — mainly for the young kids,” Rozier told reporters on Monday. “Nike and adidas are everywhere but being different is something that I take pride in. Puma’s the new wave. You can get on the train or get lost. It don’t really matter to me. It don’t help me out or nothing. I’m gonna still come through with the drip regardless”

While he may have just been talking confidently, Rozier actually does seem to be inspiring others to get in on the PUMA wave as Celtics general manager Danny Ainge tweeted at the reserve guard asking if he could get just one drop of his drip. Quite amused by Ainge’s request, Rozier hilariously told the general manager that he will hook him up with some PUMA golf gear.

For comedic purposes, let’s hope Rozier actually honors Ainge’s request because seeing the Celtics general manager in some brightly colored PUMA sneakers would simply be amusing.

Jeremy Sallee Has Been Sketching Some Awesome Puma & Adidas Concepts

words // Nick DePaula:

Over time, Instagram has proven to not only be a platform where photographers can showcase their work to a widespread global audience, but it’s also become a growing home for artists and designers to highlight their latest concepts and ideas.

After suffering an unfortunate Achilles tear, footwear designer Jeremy Sallee has been posted up and posting a spree of sketches on his page, narrowing in primarily on new concepts for Puma Hoops and Adidas Basketball. With Puma’s grand return to the NBA and basketball space for the first time in two decades, his designs explore potential twists on bridging the brand’s past through a modernized lens.

The Adidas concepts are simply awesome, delving into some new branding options for The Three Stripes. Sallee formerly worked at Reebok, where he cooked up the recent Fusion DMX and Alpha standout models during his tenure with the vector. He’s currently the Design Director for Ralph Lauren footwear, with projects soon on the horizon.

You can keep up with Jeremy’s work and his playfully dubbed #AchillesSeries on his @jermsal10 Instagram account — best of luck with the rehab and recovery!

PUMA Brings West Coast Vibes to Its Iconic California Silhouette

Foraying into sneaker culture 35 years ago, PUMA‘s classic California silhouette is now receiving a modern makeover. Originally conceived for tennis, the model made a swift transition to the streets, becoming an instant wardrobe staple for its laid-back fashion cues. Now for a new generation, the German-imprint looks to artists like Nipsey Hussle to help sustain the California’s original essence while imbuing popular West Coast vibes.

Subtle backdrops and casual styling reminiscent of Southern Los Angeles complement the model’s motifs. Featured in red and black, the upper contrasts suede and nylon with tumbled leather underscoring the heel and lace guard, all paired with a nubuck formstrip. Embellishments, like the gum sole and accents emblematic of the brand, swathe the shoe to complete the offering.

Scroll through the images above, and to shop for the classic kicks, head over to PUMA’s website.

PUMA RS-0 “Play” Pack // Closer Look

With the reboot of its vintage running shoe, PUMA releases the latest iteration of its RS-0 line with the “Play” pack — a continuation of its exploration into cultural genres.

Inspired by the video game culture of the ’80s, the German footwear imprint, for styling versatility, utilizes translucent padded inserts and a tri-color outsole, while creating contrast with a subtly painted upper — coming in black, grey, pink and white. These motifs serve a referential purpose, as they connect to the fanfare and joy created by the retro consoles, controllers and notable characters that enchanted many enthusiasts. Final touches, like an embossed Formstrip and RS-logo on the tongue and outsole complete the offering.

Retailing at $ 100 USD, shop the collection at select retailers and PUMA’s website.

Marvin Bagley III Becomes 1st NBA Player To Sign With Puma In 20 Years

At Duke, Marvin Bagley rocked Nikes and became one of the top players in his class and will be a top pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. Bagley however, will switch from the Swoosh to PUMA once he actually enters the NBA.

That’s right, Bagley is going to be hooping in PUMAs in the NBA. Bagley will become the first player to wear PUMA since 1998, when Vince Carter played in them. But Bagley isn’t just going to be playing in PUMAs, he also is signing a massive deal with the company.

According to The Athletic’s Jon Krawczynski, Bagley will sign a five-year deal with PUMA. Bagley’s deal with PUMA will be the largest rookie sneaker contract since Kevin Durant with Nike.

Durant’s first deal with Nike was for seven years, $ 60 million. So while Bagley’s deal is two years fewer than Durant’s and not yet disclosed, he apparently is going to be making a lot more money per year.

Krawczynski also reports that PUMA is “negotiating with other draft picks” and may possibly sign a few more soon-to-be rookies to sneaker deals. If that happens, then perhaps PUMA may be the next big sneaker player in the NBA landscape.

PUMA x FUBU – Streetwear Legends Collide For All Time Collection

 

The Suede hit the scene in 1968 and has been changing the game ever since. From the courts to the curbs, from ‘80s b-boys to today’s hustlers, it has been worn by the icons of every generation – and it’s stayed classic through it all.

Its style? Legendary. Its attitude? Unwavering. The Suede is for all time.

In honor of the Suede’s 50th anniversary, PUMA is releasing exclusive Suedes over the course of the year. This celebratory run includes the legends of the music world, the streets, the fashion industry, and pop culture.


Before Russell Simmons had Phat Farm, before Diddy had Sean John, before Jay Z had Rocawear – there was a brand that was made for the culture, by the culture – FUBU.

FUBU was born in 1992 by Daymond John, J. Alexander Martin, Keith Perrin and Carlton Brown with a line of hats made in John’s house in Hollis, Queens that were sold on the streets of New York for $ 10 each. When John sold $ 800 worth in one day, he knew he was onto something. Almost overnight and with little hesitation, risks were taken, bets were made, and long hours of relentless hustle ensued en route to building one of the biggest brands in fashion.

Following the success of the hats, the crew began selling screen printed T-shirts and made their mark with stitching the FUBU name to hockey jerseys and sweatshirts loaned to rappers for music videos. Numerous music videos during the 90’s and 2000’s featured artists wearing FUBU giving the brand unmeasurable visibility and organic earned media.

There was even a nationwide GAP commercial that featured LL Cool J wearing a FUBU hat and incorporating “For Us, By Us, on the low” into a 30 second long rap that GAP reportedly spent $ 30 million promoting on TV.

A quarter-century since its birth, billions of dollars in sales worldwide, and paving the way for an industry of fashion and entrepreneurs, FUBU has made its mark as an icon.

With 25 years of history for FUBU and PUMA celebrating 50 years of the Suede, what better time for the two brands to connect with one another for a collaboration with a very meaningful story (more on that soon) and great way to celebrate milestone anniversaries.

The quintessential hip-hop clothing brand, FUBU got its start in the early ‘90s and has been a streetwear legend ever since. Today, streetwear legends collide in the PUMA x FUBU collaboration. This capsule collection pays tribute to the iconic FUBU and PUMA track suits with bold colors, hits of velour, and a requisite dose of swagger.

Stay tuned for more looks of the collection, stories that connect the two brands, and exclusive interviews counting down to the release of the FUBU x PUMA collection on Friday, January 26th.
