HAPPY 20th BIRTHDAY TO THE PUMA DISC SNEAKER

IMG-20140923-00574

Had to rock this t to celebrate the 20th birthday celebration of the Puma Disc Sneaker

The DISC SYSTEM sports shoe was launched in 1991

Did some background research on the shoe and this is what I found out

  • The initial marketing used the slogans “Turn it on” and “Win. Lose. Never tie.”
  • PUMA used the Trinomic sole cushioning system in the Discs that was first introduced in 1989 in their first move away from a foam sole
  • PUMA released their futuristic disc system in response to Reebok’s Pump system sneaker. Someone at the German sneaker manufacturer said “hey, lets ditch the laces!”

S/O to the guy who said “Ditch The Laces” x its happy anniversary to Disc
