PUMA x STATES "DENIM" PACK - EXCLUSIVELY AT J2
Early hip-hop attire conjures up a number of iconic images, from LL Cool J and his chest-protruding track suits to Run DMC draped in all-black leather. At the time however, the sneaker game was nowhere near what it is today, as only a few brands were noted as accepted footwear choices. One model in particular, the PUMA Suede, received international praise as it made its way to Europe alongside the rebellious music genre. Under a different moniker, the PUMA States became the chosen model for not only early hip-hop aficionados in the UK, but also football fans that were seen cheering for their club in the terraces. In an effort to pay homage to a pioneering silhouette, PUMA presents “The List” States “Denim” Pack. Retaining its predecessor’s slim style and hip-hop roots, this timeless model is reworked with premium denim rather than suede. All three colors are now available in-store at J2 in limited quantities.
