Rappers have been teaming up with sneaker companies for decades, creating a way to blend both music and fashion. It is genius really, every fan wants to dress like their favorite rapper, or support their merchandise, so the demand is always there for the supply to be created.
Big Sean and Puma teamed up for a joint suede sneaker project back in March, and now they're back with a second collection of footwear. The PUMA x Big Sean Drop 2 collection return with three custom fashions. Just like in the first collection, the second offering puts a spin on the Suede, Suede Mid, and Clyde shoe styles. Big Sean customized each pair in a different colorway.
The Suede Mid comes in a luscious "Jelly Bean" green, while the Suede comes in a stunning "Melon" colorway. The Clyde comes in black premium leather, and a pair of PUMA Leadcat slides which feature a molded rubber footbed and a suede strap round out the new collection. The collection has been thematically tied to Barbershops, which is a nod to the culture.
The PUMA x Big Sean Drop 2 collection will be available on Puma.com and in Puma retail stores and globally on May 26.
