Santa Cruz “Screaming Hand” Puma First Rounds
Prior we reported on the Santa Cruz “Screaming Hand” Puma First Rounds, but we now have recieved some better detailed shots. The Screaming Hand is perhaps the most iconic & legendary graphic to emerge from skateboard culture over the last 30 years. Created by Jim Phillips, legendary rock poster artist & art director for Santa Cruz skateboards from 1975 ??? 1990, this release is a tribute to Jim, our friends at Santa Cruz and all the skaters that rocked PUMA???s back in the day.

First unleashed in 1987, the Screaming Hand graphic became an instant classic within the skate community and counter culture in general.
During the same year, the PUMA First Round made an appearance on the cover of THRASHER skateboard magazine. 33 years after Santa Cruz’s inception, PUMA takes a look back to honor Santa Cruz, perhaps the most credible skate brand of the 1980’s and today and pays homage to the skaters wearing the PUMA brand between 1987 ??? 1992.

The First Round Hi features a blue nubuck upper with a glossy 3D screen-print highlighting the black line-work found on the Screaming Hand graphic. The heel has a molded silicon Screaming Hand graphic and the sockliner sports an enlarged version of the graphic. Other features include a pearlized patent formstripe & collar, blood and veins leather lining, embroidered Santa Cruz logo on the tongue and 4 lace options. Barcelona based heads can get their fix of these from Limiteditions. Word around the web is that these will release early next month, but stay tuned for more details.
