Puma has been on a roll of late, and continues to enrich the streetwear offerings with the introduction of the all-new Breaker silhouette. The sneaker debuted in the AW’17 lineup, breaking the mould and entering new territory. It also takes design cues from other classic court iterations such as the Puma Suede and Clyde, while advancing the style with a new tooling. The new sneaker will be worn by Puma ambassador, Big Sean.
While the new Breaker Knit Sunfaded may be based on the classic court sneaker, it features a progressive design and modern materials, keeping the same court styling yet refreshed with a bold new look. The sneaker may be based on the iconic sneakers of the 70s and 80s, but draws upon the counterculture of the New York and London punk scene. As with many subcultures of yesteryear, the punk scene too is back in full swing, with huge influence on modern fashion and streetwear. The Breaker boasts aggressive dimensions, elevated platform outsoles and much more. From the brutal architectural elements with the stark oversized tooling to the new knitted material, the Breaker Knit Sunfaded. The fully-knitted sock-like upper is complimented by the Nubuck leather surrounding panels and hidden lacing construction for ultimate comfort and sleek styling.
The Puma Breaker Knit Sunfaded is currently available in two colourways, Black and Pebble, at various Puma stores across the country, The Cross Trainer, and selected Sportscene stores, and will retail for R2,499. The drop is a first in the chain, which starts now ahead of the Festive Season, with additional iterations and colourways going into the New Year, including the Breaker Mesh.
