Nipsey Hussle’s Posthumous “The Marathon Continues” PUMA Collection
LA rap legend Nipsey Hussle‘s The Marathon Clothing store and Puma were working on a special capsule before his passing. The collection encapsulates his easygoing style with a duo of co-branded takes on the Puma "California" sneaker and a full set of apparel that was created using measurements of his body.
Arriving in both white/red and black/red, each shoe combines textiles with 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 a 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.
