Throwing It Back With PUMA

Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped-turned upside down, and I would like to take a minute just sit right there, and I'll tell you how I became the Fresh Prince of...

Yes, this is totally the Fresh Prince's theme song, but when the 90's are revived you pay homage to Will Smith's greatest role.

So I have to admit, it’s been a while since I threw it back to the old school, but the 90’s are back in a big way, and I found myself being drawn back to my roots.

I was a huge fan of PUMA back in the day, and when I happened to find myself amongst their fall line I was totally into it. 

Things are not just as they were, but tailored, tapered and modernized in a way that I can totally get on board with.

Not to mention the fact that sports apparel has become super acceptable as normal daywear.

I am not necessarily a huge fan of trends as I think you should find what works for you, experiment here and there, and hone your style to your personal taste. But this is a trend I am definitely for!

My style has always been slightly influenced by the 90's, I mean it's when I grew up. So to see it's dominance this year has been a fun fashion trend in my opinion.

I have been donning my gym sneaks with my jeans since I was in college, and lets just say some of my more fashionable friends did not approve. However, as a man on the go and an athlete, I really wasn’t worried about what was on my feet.

Now sneakers have taken on whole new categories, and truly become a fashion staple. So when the fashion industry decided to combine comfort and fashion, I said, “count me in!”

Here are some of my personal favorites from PUMA’s recent revival, and collaboration with some cool cats.
