Local menswear bloggers style the Puma Suede
Inspired by Puma brand ambassadors, Rae Sremmurd, rocking the Puma Suede in Brooklyn, The Way of Us equipped five bloggers with a pair of the iconic sneakers and asked them to come up with their own interpretation.
One retro sneaker style worn five ways – this is how you do it.
“Because we like wearing things, we jumped at the opportunity to do something fun. We missed the deadline by a minute but we came through with something dope and the opportunity to f**k around with a classic silhouette was much appreciated.” – Luke Doman
“Instead of creating one look, I went with two looks that best represent my daily style. Both looks are minimal and represent the items of clothing I am most comfortable in.” – Ernest Mojela
“Instantly recognisable by its silhouette and suede finish, the iconic Puma Suede Classic has been a firm favourite for decades. Perforations for added breathability, a padded collar for cushioning and a rubber outsole for optimum grip complete this heritage design that’s set to become the shoe of the season. Get into how I styled mine for the day out in my city!” – Gemaen Jordan Taylor
“To start off with, my outfit features my favourite artist and a bit of family history. I got my T-shirt from MOMA in New York and it showcases Keith Haring. My jeans were passed down to me by my father – he used to go adventuring in them over 40 years ago. To give my look a bit of my character, I added a little Jurassic feel; my bonsai named Pterodactyl and my little old Triceratops. I also added in a very special part of my life a film camera. I don’t go anywhere without some sort of photographic equipment.” – Deji Dada
“I got these rad sneaks from Superbalist as part of the Puma Suede collection that is out in the streets right now. I love the pair I got because it goes with my visual aesthetic of black and white. They are the perfect sneaks for running the streets.” – Ndu Donsa
