Paying homage to one of Chinese cuisine’s mainstays, the guys over at Hypebeast teamed up with PUMA to work on a special release entitled “The Dim Sum Project” Blaze of Glory pack. Comprised of the “OG” and lightweight “LTWT” Blaze of Glory, both shoes feature subtle design elements inspired by the Chinese dish. The white “Har Gao” Blaze of Glory LTWT features a subtle shrimp camo beneath a thin translucent layer, mimicking the wrapper skin of a har gao, whereas the yellow “Siu Mai” boasts a high quality suede and leather, representing the wrapper of siu mai pork dumpling.
The Hypebeast x PUMA “The Dim Sum Project” Blaze of Glory OG & LTWT pack will be available via the Hypebeast Store on Wednesday, May 8 at 12 p.m. EST, retailing at $155 each, or $300 for both pairs. Each pair comes with a custom dustbag and commemorative chopsticks. The pack will see its APAC region release on Friday, May 10 and a global release on Friday, May 17.
