PUMA NYY NYK
01.07.2015 | PUMA
Straight from the heart and soul of the New York team sport culture, we bring you the New York Yankees and New York Knicks (even Hova aka Jay Z likes to let you know that he’s chilling court side) where we have taken inspiration to this highly anticipated pack.
From two different sporting arenas…Yankee Stadium and Madison Square Garden, and both as famous as each other, PUMA pays homage to New York City's most iconic sports teams, and presents the fan and collector alike with the PUMA NYY NYK pack in colours as unique as the teams themselves.
Of course the inspiration for the PUMA NYY NYK pack would come from the team colours themselves…The New York Yankees, based in the Bronx rock a grey, blue and white colour scheme on the diamond and The New York Knicks, from the heart of Manhattan in NYC orange and blue uniform when hitting the hardwood.
Each team’s colours are channelled through our R698 and Blaze of Glory silhouettes. Additional technical detailing is created through a mesh vamp and the use of suede and leather overlays creating clever blocking on the Trinomic midsole. It is in these details that the iconic colours of the New York Yankees and Knicks are brought to life. The colour palette and material play is mimicked across both of the classic PUMA silhouettes to create a coherent and impressive pack.
The PUMA NYY NYK pack drops at PUMA Select Cape Town and Johannesburg – Blaze of Glory: R1 700 and R698: R1 600.
