In the late ‘90s, SNEAKERSNSTUFF founders Erik Fagerlind and Peter Jansson traveled to New York on adventures to find the sought after and exclusive sneakers, later returning to sell them in their Stockholm store. The Puma X SNS collaboration is inspired by these trips and the two things that was always with them during these trips – their big black duffel bags that they used to carry home the sneakers and their passports. There are 2 shoes in this release: An XS850 and an XT2. (Images courtesy of Sneakers N' Stuff)
The Sneakersnstuff x PUMA XS850 ”Peter” is inspired by the black duffel bags they used to carry home their sneakers in from New York. The bag is made in a thick ballistic nylon upper with premium suede details and a super soft leather lining. The quality of these sneakers really stands out. Tonal black details on the whole upper. To make them a little bit more personal Peter put his name on the sticker on the insole and his initials on the heel tabs.
The Sneakersnstuff x PUMA XT2+ ”Erik” is inspired by the old Swedish Passport. Premium navy leather upper details as well as the lining is from the cover of the passport. The soft leather turquoise combined with turquoise premium suede takes its inspiration from the passport pages that is also represented on the light yellow midsole. The numbers on the right shoe is the birthdate of Erik and the numbers on the back of the left shoe is Erik’s old passport number.
Both sneakers will be available in limited numbers Saturday October 23rd online at Jiberish.com as well as in-store at the Jiberish LoHi Boutique in Denver while supplies last.
