Before his recent passing in March, LA rap legend Nipsey Hussle‘s The Marathon Clothing and Puma were working together on a special collab. Now it has been announced the collab will still be released in honor of Hussle’s legacy.The rapper born Ermias Asghedom, was the epitome of laid-back California cool, so the collection focuses on his easygoing style with touches of co-branded takes on the Puma California sneaker and a full set of apparel that was created using measurements of his body.
Each shoe combines textiles with clean smooth leather and a slightly glossy midsole for an inherently classic look. Co-branded details adorn each shoe’s midfoot and hangtag. From an apparel standpoint, there’s a red sweatsuit that’s an ideal match for the white pair, while the black tracksuit provides a perfect pairing for the black pair. Black and tan workwear-style jumpsuits and five different t-shirts then complete the co-branded offerings. Hussle’s love for community-based activism was well known, so 100% of net proceeds from the collection’s sales will go to the Neighborhood “Nip” Foundation to enrich the lives of local LA youth. Check out the entire project below and stay tuned as the release date nears.
