PUMA Announces Suede 50th Anniversary Campaign

On this day in 1968 at the Summer Games in Mexico City, American athlete Tommie Smith broke the 200m world record in PUMA spikes. When he walked to the victory stand, he wore Black socks and carried a single PUMA Suede on his left hand.

Today marks 49 years since the Suede’s first and greatest moment in sport culture and PUMA is officially kicking off the year-long celebrations through its 50th Anniversary in 2018.

To honour the Suede’s legacy, PUMA is partnering with brand and icons in music, fashion, street, and pop culture to introduce 50 unique drops of the classic silhouette as well as re-releases of beloved OG styles and brand new iterations.

Fittingly, kicking off the celebrations is the remarkable gentleman who started it all, PUMA’s long-standing Track & Field athlete, Tommie Smith.

PUMA Suede 50th Anniversary Release Date

Look for the PUMA Suede 50th Anniversary to release on November 4th at select PUMA locations and PUMA.com.
