PUMA and Trapstar have reworked the classic PUMA Disc. The Disc x Trapstar White Noise features the Trapstar signature ‘white noise’ graphic design all over the PUMA silhouette making this iteration an ultimate key look ahead of the of the main collection. In the same ‘white noise’ print, another piece being released is the Trapstar Leadcat.

It is produced in the same soft engineered jacquard with rich dry-cell technology as any other football tee, replacing the logo’s with Trapstar emblems. The ‘white noise’ print is featured in inserts, linking in with the footwear to bring the three pieces together as a strong capsule range that gives us a taste of what is to come from PUMA x Trapstar.

Coming Soon: Air Jordan Retro 10 ‘Charlotte’

AJ9-Charlotte-Blog-1

At the time of the Air Jordan 10’s initial release, the man behind the Jumpman retired from basketball to compete on the diamond. When you flip the shoe over – the sole gives nod to some of His Airness’ most memorable achievements on the court. In 1995, Jordan Brand took the story-telling concept a step further with the ‘City Series’ Pack. Decades later, the city inspired pack continues with the Air Jordan 10 Retro ‘Charlotte’. The white, blue and purple throughout the shoe was borrowed from Charlotte’s basketball team while the stitched ‘Cha’ is yet another shout to the city. The sole reveals a white Jumpman over on the Charlotte’s team colors that captures His Airness’ achievements from 85 to beyond. Look for the Air Jordan Retro 10 ‘Charlotte’ to drop this Saturday, June 18th.
