With World Cup fever continuing to build, Puma introduces the Tekkies “World Cup” Pack. In seven country-specific designs, the Tekkies provide a unique way to cheer on some of the best soccer teams in the world. They’re a great summer shoe as well, featuring a totally collapsible, lightweight canvas upper with frayed edges, plus a four-line stitched version of the iconic PUMA formstripe and a woven PUMA logo label on the heel. Each style is colored up to correspond to a specific country — Ghana, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Germany, Brazil, Italy, and South Africa — featuring graphics with a “painted-on” feel.
Where can you get ’em? They’re on the ground in the US exclusively at PUMA City NY at the South Street Seaport, where they retail for $45. And, let’s be honest, the Tekkies’ relevance will surely continue long after the final goal’s been scored. (Whether they’re in or they’re out, you’re still a fan, right?) They’re truly a unisex style, too, available in men’s sizes 5.5 to 13. Anyone looking to score a pair is advised to get to PUMA City before doors close on July 11.
