PUMA X HELLY HANSEN Teams Up For 90’S Appreciation Collection


PUMA X HELLY HANSEN join forces with their first collection full of 1990’s vibes. The collection is the perfect combination between PUMA’s sports heritage and casual DNA combined with the highly technical knowledge and outdoor expertise of HELLY HANSEN.

Founded in Norway more than 140 years ago with the creation of waterproof clothing for sailors, HELLY HANSEN is a leader in sailing and performance ski apparel, as well as premium workwear. Through bold designs, HELLY HANSEN technical and protective outerwear left its mark on 1990’s hip-hop subculture and streetwear. The PUMA X HELLY HANSEN collab takes inspiration from the vibrant 90s era, infusing it in this multifaceted new collection. While the collection pays tribute to the heritage of PUMA and HELLY HANSEN, it also incorporates a modern twist by adding outdoor-inspired details and elements.

Coming dressed in PUMA Black, the PUMA X HELLY HANSEN Nitefox kick features a transparent heat cut TPU formstrip, zig zag stitching, round laces and bungee cord. The PUMA X HELLY HANSEN apparel collection includes a cozy, reversible jacket with all-over-print graphics as well as logo graphics at the back. The jacket also features water repellant fabric to protect from wind and wet conditions. The collab extends to co-branded apparel with PUMA X HELLY HANSEN graphics on a hoodie with kangaroo pockets, pants with warming fleece and a tee.


The PUMA X HELLY HANSEN collection drops at PUMA Select stores and PUMA Sandton City on 3 October 2019.

First Look: Air Jordan 4 WMNS Retro - 'Mushroom'


Celebrating 30 years of Jordan 4s, the latest release sees a mix of tan shades and supple suede, that looks more luxurious lifestyle, geared towards casual wear but elegant enough for formal situations as well. The upper’s accents are provided by black trim and detailing on the signature wings, the laces, and the heel tab, as well as under the midfoot/throat netting.

A bold black leather tongue patch then presents an iridescent Jumpman for a compelling but not distracting deviation from the earthy palette, mirroring the stylings on the heel.

First Look: Nike Air Barrage Mid - Black/White-Aqua

 Every inch of the design from the chunky construction to the bold branding and vivid accents practically screams ’90s, with the heavily-layered upper using both stark black and airy white tones.

Aqua accents are spread across the rubber tongue badge, lacing system, tongue, and heel, while the shoe’s most noticeable details arrive via the double-Swooshed midfoot strap and the block letter AIR branding on the midsole.
