Media Release | Get Creative And Lucky In Braamies With Puma

























The Basket -- Hailing from the basketball courts of yesteryear, this shoe is a leather version of PUMA’s classic Clyde. It’s reissued here, from 1971, in all its original glory – minus the sweatbands and handlebar mustaches.

The First Round -- Inspired by the big hoop dreams of basketball draft picks, the original silhouette was issued back in 1987. This shoe maintains its signature high profile, padded collar and smooth moves.

Fans will be able to head down to the PUMA store in Braamfontein from 30 May to create their one-of-a-kind sneakers. Manufacturing and shipping will take approximately 5 to 10 weeks from the date of order. The PUMA Basket retails for R999 and the First Round for R1 199.

The true after-hours athletes might also be lucky enough to spot the mobile unit at the PUMA Social Club in Jozi where it will occasionally make an appearance on Friday nights.

While you’re down at the Braamfontein store, why not enter PUMA’s Instabraam competition through the channel hipsters know best, Instagram. All you have to do is get down to the PUMA Braamfontein store (Cnr De Korte and Melle Street) on a Saturday, take a photo of any item of clothing and post it to Instagram, tagging PUMA (@PUMA) and including the hashtag #Instabraam. Get all your friends to like your post and by the following Friday the person with the most likes will win the item of clothing they photographed. The competition runs from 1 June – 31 July.
