PUMA Drops Their 2016 “Black History Month” Pack

During the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City , African-American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos – after having won gold and bronze in the 200 meters respectively – took to the podium in and bowed their heads and raised their black-gloved fists in silent protest during the playing of the national anthem, an act meant to “stand up for human rights and to stand up for black Americans.”

The pack includes the two editions of the PUMA Suede and a PUMA Sky II High, all three pairs are decked out the multicolor prints constructed with premium materials.

Check out the full detailed images below and look for the PUMA 2016 Black History Month Pack available now at select PUMA retail stores, including Sneaker Politics.
