Evolution of Suede
The PUMA Suede: 45 Years Fresh #ForTheStreet
Music genres, hairstyles, and fashion fads come and go, but the PUMA Suede has evolved and grown as a true street icon for 45 years, and in 2013 its lite little brother, Future Suede, is born.
Backtrack to 1968 when the Suede was ignited and worn by athletic greats such as the track’s Tommie Smith and basketball’s Walt ‘Clyde’ Frazier. It rose to new levels of fame in the early days of hip hop, B-boys and funk beats in the 70s and favored by the New York City Breakers and the Rock Steady Crew who wholeheartedly adopted its sweet tread and smooth, classic look. As the underground music scene rose to the street surface, so did the Suede’s popularity.
To celebrate its 45 years of rich heritage and to kick off the ‘Evolution of Suede’, PUMA is inviting their fans from all around the world to be a part of the ‘Evolution of Suede Instagram Contest’. By participating this contest, fans can become part of the timeline with other fans, worldwide.
