Tommie Smith Puma Suedes

Tommie Smith Puma Suede

In 1968, one of the most iconic images of the complicated times that are known as the Civil Rights Movement, was Tommie Smith raising his clenched fist, covered by a black glove, while receiving his gold medal in the Mexico City Olympics. 40 years later, Puma pays tribute to Tommie Smith with a pair of Puma Suedes.

Each colorway of the Suede receives a subtle all over print of the clenched fist image that made such a huge statement forty years ago. The heel tab also features the a gold colored “Mexico 1968″ which pays tribute to the athletic accomplishments of Tommie Smith in those Olympic games. A well executed and appropriate tribute to one of the most memorable statements made, in the name of human rights.

These are available now at Mita.
