Sports giants Puma is launching a special limited-edition Manchester City trainer collection with retailer size? tomorrow, 4 October, in celebration of the football club’s 125th anniversary.
The “MCFC Pack” delves in to the Puma archive collections to stay true to the brand’s roots, and was designed in collaboration with the club’s fans. Sneaker styles are being re-issued in a way that remains sympathetic to original styles.
The four footwear styles aim to honour iconic moments in the club’s history, as well as one of its best-known terraced stands, the Kippax at the old Maine Road ground. The names given to the four styles include the Puma Blue Star “Kippax” and the Puma Bluebird “Whitworth”.
To celebrate the launch, Puma and size? hosted an event in Manchester last night for fans and special guests. The event featured an exhibition of limited-edition products to bring to life four moments in City’s history, and a selection of football shirts recreated by author and self-confessed “kit-head” Neal Heard.
There was also as an exhibition of portrait photography by Dean Davies (main image) depicting youth fans authentically styled for match-day while sporting product from the new MCFC Pack.
