STAMPD and Puma will be dropping the STAMPD x Puma Suede 88-18 this weekend. The special iteration of the Suede is the latest release to celebrate the model’s 50th anniversary.
“In 1988, 20 years after the Suede launch, I got my hands on my first pair,” Said STAMPD creative director, Chris Stamp. “The brands I’ve been fortunate to align with are brands I grew up idolizing – brands that inspired me. This one hit home and it was important to make it special from the sole to laces.”
STAMPD has remastered the Suede with clean sophistication. The STAMPD x Puma Suede 88-18 takes on the characteristics of two shoes in one; the upper designed with smooth, premium suede while the lower mirrors an unfinished design with rough edges and a textured soul. Stamped on the side: everything you need to know about this one-of-a-kind piece.
“The Suede simply represents what we at PUMA stand for as a brand,” says Helmut Fischer, PUMA’s chief archivist. “Taking a standard and making it a must-have. Being iconic.”
The STAMPD x Puma Suede 88-18 will be available for pre-purchase at STAMPD.com and at STAMPD’s Los Angeles boutique on July 28th ahead of the global release, August 4th.
