Three years on, PUP are proud to announce the launch of their first womens streetwear pack: two sneaker designs and three pieces of apparel featuring silhouettes and colourways that work with busy lifestyles. The PUP pack drops today at 7pm!

The pack consists of limited edition sneakers in two colourways and three items of apparel; the t-shirt / the long sleeved t-shirt / the sweatshirt, designed for city-living women by city-living women.

PUMA BLAZE OF GLORY SOCK FRESH FOR SS16


PUMA is proud to debut its new Sportstyle silhouette, the Blaze of Glory Sock Fresh.

All-new for 2016, PUMA have reinvented the iconic Blaze of Glory, a famed silhouette running classic of the 90’s that made its way onto the sneaker scene through the forward style and use of Trinomic technology, taking the iconic running style to the streets.

I loooooove the refresh PUMA has given the BOG for SS16. This is going to to be such a summer staple - the subtle, easy to wear silhouette is giving me heart eyes all over again!
Innovation of the upper sock comes in a suede/leather combination with use of elastic around the heel. Colours, Glacier Gray White and Black Asphalt Line are highlighted with fluo-pop tones, peach and punch, marking this the perfect fresh silhouette to kick off the summer season. Taking design cues from PUMA’s classic BOG sneaker, refined to be more on the pulse of todays sneaker trends.

The PUMA Blaze of Glory Sock Fresh dropped today and is available online now at retailers including End Clothing!
