Whether you connected with the late Nipsey Hussle’s music or adamancy on the future of cryptocurrency, his legacy lives on. One of the many manifestations of the Los Angeles-native spirit has been his The Marathon Clothing (TMC) line, which entered into partnership with PUMA in 2018. On May 7th, TMC is set to launch its first-ever PUMA Suede alongside a t-shirt carrying Hussle’s spirit.
Akin to in-line iterations of the low-top model, the forthcoming joint-effort indulges in a tonal grey throughout its high-quality suede upper. Branding on the lateral mid-foot maintains its standard arrangement, but logos on the heel and sock-liner have either been replaced with shimmering gold “TMC” insignias or a re-worked puma created specifically for all collaborations with Hussle’s company. Although the accompanying t-shirt forgoes any of the luxurious touches that the PUMA Suede features, it includes co-branding on the chest, as well as TMC’s mission statement on the collar tag: “…Life is a Marathon.”
