The best re-gift we've ever seen.

Words by

Kirsten Biacsi

Some things should never be re-released. From clothing hybrids (jeggings, we mean you) to Willow Smith’s hair-whipping horror, some things are best left to the past.

German legend Puma’s Boris Becker OG Sneaker, however, is not one of these things.

As far as we are concerned, these babies should be re-issued as often as they like, if it means we get to attend more Puma launches like this.

Tennis legend Boris Becker wore a pair of these kicks during his Wimbledon win 30 years ago. Flash forward to January 15th 2015, and guest of honour, Becker himself, celebrates the re-release of this very shoe at what promised to be a kick-ass event. Vintage Puma rereleases are a big FJ hit; where chic events and classic fashion collide, count us in.

Tennis-vintage themed, with astro-turf and PIMMs  (yes please), this warehouse launch set Puma’s winter ’15 lifestyle range off to a effortless and damn impressive start. Vintage Puma rereleases are a big FJ hit; where chic events and classic fashion collide, count us in.

The classic Becker sneakers are available at Platypus Shoes and selected sneaker stores.
