Streetwear brand Chinatown Market and mega brand Puma have teamed up to create two new spins on classic sneaks from the 80s. How fortunate is that?
As you know Puma needs no introduction so let’s talk about Chinatown Market. Known for their NYC canal street and local bodega inspired graphic t-shirts, Chinatown Market clothing has earned a few breakthrough mentions on Hypebeast, Highsnobiety, LacednLit and other notable streetwear blogs. The brand was created by New York City native Michael Cherman, tapping inspiration from his local surroundings and the latest trends in street fashion.
Not only did Puma x Chinatown Market collaborate but they also did this amazingly sleek, black leather version for the legendary Ralph Sampson that features a really sic multi-color Velcro Puma logo. If you are unfamiliar with Mr. Sampson, he was one of the Houston Rockets Twin Towers. The other was Hakeem Olajuwon. If you don’t know who he is either, LMGTFY.
