  1. As for the rumors about Puma getting into the skate industry, they had a little division of the company called Puma S (S is for Skate) and released three skate shoes, including the Puma Suede Skate, just slightly altered Suede for skateboarding specifically. They only had one rider to rep them and that was Joey Brezinski. According to Joey, Puma was purely doing it for a cash grab and they ignored his requests on how to appeal the shoe to skaters or other improvements. Eventually, the whole project was a flop and Joey left after only about a year. Nowadays, they are low-key about it and they still have the skate version of the Suede here but it's no longer being made https://us.puma.com/en/us/pd/suede-skate-sneakers/369241.html

  2. I dig the history videos on these sneakers. How about a vid on the sneaker wars of the mid to late 80โ€™s? BKโ€™s, Reebok, Nike, Adidas, Troop, Lotto, Cons, LA Gear, Fila, Ellesse etc…. that would be a great vid.

  3. Jesus man, to think that the Suede and All Star were both made by two competing former Nazis, and both went on to be arguably the two most iconic early hip hop shoes of all time…

  4. big fan of puma here, thanks for the video, very informational. I actually never owned a Suede, but had plenty of Clydes and Basket

  5. Bryan your heaps more comfortable on camera bro n boys I gotta ask for more air max,tn,jailwind or something video please just want more

  6. These are so relaxing to watch, like damn I donโ€™t even like the puma suede but Iโ€™ll still watch the video.

  7. they started adidas and then rudolf snitched because he chose quantity over quality… thats why i dont wear puma

  8. Nobody called suede pumas, "Puma Suede". That's a 2010's thing. And the cheaply constructed "Puma Suede" are hideous. The OG's, from the streets of NYC, were the Puma Basket, Clyde, and the classic suede pumas (model 90681).

  9. YOUR Channel is AMAZING i LOVE the content please keep up the great work!For real plz school us on every sneaker designed by Tinker Hatfield.I know that his vid will be long but he is a legend.YOU guys are inspiring me to buy older sneaker models that are filled with history THANK YOU SO MUCH.GOD BLESS

  11. i've been buying puma suede's for years. today i got a new pair and when the package came i wasn't pleased to find that the tongue wasn't the original leather and overall the shoe was softer. i got them from zappos, so they're definitely not fake. i'm just wondering if these are the new edition or something ?

  12. Kinda cool, but not enough gangsta. Fits for fighting for equality, but not for beating the shit out of a snitch.

  13. I remember that. One of the guys puma pick up was joey brezinski. The dude rock pumas alot and skated with alot of dope colorway

  14. First ever shoes I remember having when I was 2 years old in New York was black Puma suedes with a red stripe ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘

  15. Puma Suedes and Hip Hop – you mention the weeknd, Big Sean and Rihanna and manage to leave out the entire line from Yo! MTV Raps and you fail to mention the Suede 50th anniversary B-Boy special editions?
    Research, Jack.

  16. Loved the shoutouts to Tommie Smith and breakdancing culture! I got 3 pairs, probably one of my all time favorites. Great video as always!

  17. I barely have any Pumas in my collection and in Zambia it's hard to find them outside of major retailers like TotalSport and Studio88 who tend to sell them at resale price equivalent to the USD. I usually have plugs who do the job and sell at thrift prices which is how my collection grew except for Vans and chucks which are very much affordable here at retail price. Zambia's sneaker community has grown massively through the years and your videos have helped my passions grow further. Hoping a sneakerhead from my side of the world also sees what you guys have done!! Definitely need to cop more pumas especially the suede. I'd love to see a video on the Adidas Gazelles or DCs maybe even the rise and fall of Supra that would be epic!!!

  18. Do a show about the canvas Ivan Lendl adidas, that was iconic but what happened to them and why are they impossible to get now? Almost like they never existed.

  19. Hey Brian, good to see you in a video again.

    Nacho and yourself have only elevated the quality of your videos since I started watching.

    Good job, thank you.

    Bless
