The 2014 Soccer World Cup brought with it a football fever almost as euphoric as when the mother content hosted the tournament in 2010. My headspace is right in the middle of festivities happening in Brazil right now. The same goes for my threads game too, which is why I am looking to PUMA’s bang-on-trend key items currently available in stores.
The items here below are bursting great references and should definitely top most, if not all lists of must-have and must-wear pieces.
In 1970, the Brasilian national team changed football history. This season, PUMA honors that world victory and legendary football moment with the Brasil 70 Windbreaker. Made up of water resistant fabric, this windbreaker also features removable sleeves and a gradient take on national colors.
The Brasil Grip Bag refreshes an iconic silhouette with vintage PUMA and a vibrant yellow formstrip. It features a luxurious cotton webbing shoulder strap and a spacious main compartment adorned with PUMA heritage lining.
The Brasil Track Jacket was first zipped on a German football pitch in 1981. It made a name for itself with its comfy materials and smooth, form-fitting style. This season’s Brasil Track Jacket style keeps that football legacy in check by honoring Brasil with graphic elements inspired by Brasilian street clash. The jacket’s tread pattern pulls inspiration from the iconic PUMA Brasil, staying true to its sport heritage roots.
To pay homage to the bar reset by the national football team of Brasil in 1970. PUMA honored that triumph by introducing the the PUMA Brasil: a state-of-the-art suede with a clean toe and durable cupsole for drills, all wrapped up in green-yellow-and-blue. It became the go-to style for athletes warming up on the pitch and chilling out. This season marks the re-issue of the original Brasil with its vintage looks intact. The name and style remain synonymous with some of the greatest football ever played and the PUMA Brasil sentiments still translates no matter the country or decade: Eu sou brasileiro, com muito orgulho, com muito amor (I am Brasilian, with great pride, with love).
