Surviving the times and shifting gears, PUMA has reintroduced the iconic GV Special. First fashioned as a true tennis shoe, the model became a cultural staple for those along the I-95 corridor. Beloved by communities in Baltimore, DC, Philly and Atlanta, the shoes’ subtle detailing made it a fan favorite in urban and hip-hop fashion, catching the eyes of Yo Gotti and Meek Mill over the years.
Digging in the crates to bring it back, the German footwear powerhouse dubs the sneaker as a summer essential. Retooling the model with a chunkier sole, the model first relaunches in tonal black and white takes with tumbled leather canvassing the upper, complemented by perforated leather on the toe for breathability during hot times. Going easy on embellishments, iconic branding on the upper and tongue cap off this summer staple.
