Kiss frontman paul stanley rocks the suede
Celebrating Both Icons' Rock Star Status in Culture
Rock music’s enduring influence on fashion makes a comeback for the Suede’s 50th anniversary celebrations. Global sports brand PUMA proudly teams up with Rock Icon and member of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, KISS front man Paul Stanley to pay homage to both his legendary multi-hyphenated career and the iconic Suede’s legacy with the release of the Suede 50 x Paul Stanley sneakers.
Exploding onto the music scene in the early 1970’s, KISS began their 45-year run as a Rock music and pop culture phenomenon in no short due to Paul’s creative and musical vision for the vast majority of their most popular songs, trendsetting stages, album covers and costumes. With an unstoppable “Can Do” attitude, his influence continues in fashion trends and music across generations. In addition to 100 million recording sales with KISS, other successes include a New York Times best-selling autobiography, ”Face The Music,” which has been translated into 6 languages, and a passion for painting which has amassed sales of over 10 million dollars. A visionary and trendsetter #ForAllTime, it all comes roaring to life in this special iteration of the Suede.
Drawing inspiration from both the black and white makeup that is synonymous with his signature stage persona and KISS’s multi platinum album Animalize, the Suede base material is debossed with zebra print and silver leather Formstrip. Rendered with red leather heel tab and off-white outsole, these sneakers are sure to define those who make tracks whethersome punk with Paul Stanley lace hoops.
The Suede 50 x Paul Stanley sneakers drop globally on PUMA.com and select PUMA stores on September 27th.
