The PUMA Select OG

Say hello to Nathier Schroeder. Original Gangster, resident sneaker advisor, playa, and wouldn’t you know it, selecta at the PUMA Select Store in Cape Town, Nathier knows sneakers.
The self-titled “Guy from PUMA whose name you can’t pronounce”, Mr Schroeder’s cred is known far beyond the solipsistic confines of the Bree Street fashion precinct. That’s why it was only natural that he was the perfect fit for the PUMA Select Store.
Because of his vast experience in observing closet hipsters in their natural habitat, we knew it would be interesting to find out Nathier’s favourite PUMA Select item in the store. Being quite the hipster himself, he blindsided us with a choice not even available yet… the hipster hunter becomes the hipster.
PUMA: What is your favourite item?

Nathier: My favourite sneaker is PUMA x BWGH XS850 due to be launched later this year.

PUMA: Why do you like it?

Nathier: I dig that they have developed this fast for such a young brand doing collaborations with Kitsune and more importantly Ronnie Fieg.

PUMA: You know you’re going to cause issues talking about kicks that aren’t even in stock yet right?

Nathier: *looks menacing*

PUMA: Ok… sorry Mr Schroeder, please get back to drinking free coffee and using our complimentary face-melting wifi sir. No, no… don’t worry we’ll pack the stock room for you. OK no, you’re right we’d probably mess it up. We’ll go.
Luckily, fresh product is our game and let’s just say next week’s drop is about as exciting as it gets. While you wait for the Select original gangster’s choice to get in stock.
The PUMA OG ’93 Pack       
The PUMA Select Store Bree St drops two hot new pairs from the PUMA OG ’93 Pack. The OG is on the block. Respect is mandatory. The OG ’93 Pack is rich with history of athletic and lifestyle footwear. Over two decades have passed since these epic silhouettes were first released.

After being involved in a few packs and collaborations, the PUMA R698 is getting ready to release in another fresh colourway. This time around, the silhouette will arrive sporting a black mesh, leather, and suede upper with hot pink prominently placed about the inner lining, heel, and sole.

A mix of leather, mesh, and rubber build the upper and an uber-soft neoprene bootie assure that comfort is on deck. While black and grey make for a muted base, the orange and blue hits almost guarantee that elitist passers-by will have to give your footwork an envious and inquisitive glance.

The kicker is these kicks are super limited edition, so kick up a fuss while they’re hot (dropping Wednesday) so you don’t kick yourself.

All this and more available (soon) at your friendly neighbourhood PUMA Select Store - 137 Bree Street, Cape Town, 8001.
