SLAMFam Bobbito Garcia is a world-renowned sneakerhead. He’s written a book about sneakers and hosted a TV show about the subject, too.
The New York native has just teamed up with PUMA for two new pairs of Suede Mids and Clydes. Here’s more from the brand:
Bobbito Garcia is the critically acclaimed author of ‘Where’d You Get Those? New York City’s Sneaker Culture: 1960- 1987’. The Suede Mid takes inspiration from the book and Garcia’s basketball experiences with a certain gold touch etched on the mid upper when many people on the block would ask “Where’d you get those? ” Typical outdoor b-ball slang has been applied to the innersole and upper quarter of the Clyde, continuing this theme.
The sneakers are available now in limited quantities at select PUMA spots. Check out pictures up top and a video of Bobbito talking about his inspiration below.
