Last in this collaboration project to be honored is MC Shan. The only Clyde to come in the classic suede upper, this is for sure also one to check out. But we have to admit, out favorite piece is the MC Shan collaboration has got to be the hat. It’s great to see Puma going into such details. It’s the kind of product that is hard to sell, but at the same time it makes this collaboration much more complete and authentic.
MC Shan can be credited as one of the most remembered B-boys back in the day. He broke through in 1983 as part of his cousins Marl’s Juice Crew All Stars. His classic hit “The Bridge” provides inspiration for the shoe. The sneaker features the Queensborough Bridge in gold embroidery on the body of classic Suede’s. Mixing pairs was Shan’s trademark look, and to pay homage to him, PUMA has designed the shoes in 2 different colours – one red, one blue, with a white patent leather PUMA form stripe, “MC” on the right tongue and “SHAN” on the left, a special YO! shoe lace, and the YO! logo on the back of each heel. The look is completed with a red, white & blue zip-up top and red bucket hat, honoring the original PUMA track jacket and hat featured on Shan’s album cover ‘Down by Law’. A red-shirt depicting MC Shan striking a pose completes the set.
Also coming to stores September 15th. Make sure to check out after the jump the sneakers, the clothing and the sick hat.
