Following on from the Suede 50 drop in 2018, PUMA and renowned visual artist Bradley Theodore team up again to create a strikingly vibrant collection for 2019. The collection features Bradley’s signature colour-laden graphics with strong brushwork technique, PUMA silhouettes are enhanced with hand-painted symbols like skulls, hearts and hashtags.
The collection features three silhouettes, including the PUMA Thunder Bradley Theodore, PUMA Capri Bradley Theodore, as well as the PUMA Clyde Bradley Theodore. It features a mix of classic and progressive PUMA styles and highlights the artist’s hand-painted, all-over graphics, strokes and colour blocking with the text, ‘CREATIVITY IS CULTURE’, printed under the tongue. A rubberised patch of his signature skull-icon is featured throughout the collection.
The PUMA Thunder Bradley Theodore, a progressive fashion-forward running silhouette, was designed with a soft leather upper and contrast mesh lining, which also features its signature chunky sole that’s decked with neon colour-blocked TPU inserts. The PUMA Capri Bradley Theodore is a classic vulcanized silhouette built with a soft leather upper, which includes hand-drawn effects of tonal glossy graphics on quarter panels. The look is completed with the famed ‘NEW YORK’ script printed on the shoe’s outer panels. For the classic court silhouette, the PUMA Clyde Bradley Theodore, the artist works with his colourful hand-drawn graphics on quarter panels and a debossed ‘BRADLEY THEODORE’ signature on the medial side.
The PUMA x Bradley Theodore collection is set to drop in South Africa on 25 January 2019 and will be available at PUMA SELECT stores, Archive, Madaiza, X-Trend and selected retailers nationwide.
