May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Once a taboo subject has become the focal point of mainstream conversation within the last handful of years. The topic at hand has evolved to the point that athletes and sneaker brands are playing their role in advocating and raising money for mental health in one way, shape, or form.
The Trevor Project x PUMA Sky Modern was created in PUMA’s mission for inclusivity in sports partnered with The Trevor Project’s relentless work as one of the top crisis intervention and suicide prevention organizations for young people who are LGBTQ. A detail worth noting is the pair’s price. The shoe will retail for $180, which represents the 1.8 million LGBTQ youth who seriously contemplate suicide every year. 100% of each sale will go towards The Trevor Project.
Take a closer look at the pair below. The pair will be available for preorder starting May 27 on PUMA.com. Stay tuned for everything PUMA here at Nice Kicks.
