Puma is set to honor late LA rapper and community activist Nipsey Hussle this September with a highly-anticipated capsule collection that’s centered around three takes on the Puma California — one of which is a just-revealed white/blue friends and family edition. Created in partnership with Hussle’s The Marathon Clothing, each shoe projects crisp Cali cool with a leather/mesh upper, co-branded Puma/TMC detailing, and a special hangtag.
Both the white/red and the black/red colorway will see a full retail release, but the blue-equipped pair — a palette that was near and dear to Hussle’s heart — is reserved for those that were closest to him, as they’ll be gifted to members of his inner circle.
The tremendous trifecta of shoes will also be accompanied by a full TMC x Puma apparel collection. Each shoe and garment was specifically signed off on by Nip himself, and 100% of proceeds from the collection’s sales will be donated to the Neighborhood Nip foundation, a charitable organization that aims to enrich and empower local youth in Hussle’s South Central LA neighborhood. The collection will release exclusively at Puma.com, the TMC e-shop, and the Shoe Palace web store/their retail locations . Get your most thorough look at all three pairs below, and prepare yourself for their September 5th date of arrival when you’re done.
