This spring/summer 2015, PUMA reissues the iconic Match 74 and Boris Becker shoes from its Tennis archive, to inspire its future and celebrate the brand’s rich sports heritage of being Forever Faster.
The Match 74 is updated with added off-court appeal – panels that were originally added to prevent players slipping on court now feature premium suede colour pops.
Along with this release, the new PUMA Boris Becker is crafted with soft rich leather and imprinted with red details. It was originally introduced in the mid 80s and was one of Becker’s signature shoes on the court.
A distinct character on the tennis court, Boris Becker signed on with PUMA in 1985 and became the youngest and first unseeded player ever to win Wimbledon. In 2015, PUMA celebrates the 30th anniversary of this unprecedented win and the brand’s heritage of unmatched on-court glory and off-court style.
“PUMA’s desire to be Forever Faster is long established. The brand’s rich tennis heritage has seen some of the games most celebrated athletes stalk the baseline in their PUMA Tennis shoes. Whilst the innovations that helped PUMA redefine tennis product and performance throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s may have been eclipsed the timeless silhouettes continue to endure off-court,” said Adam Petrick, Brand Director.
The Match 74 (SGD129), Match Lo (SGD99) and the PUMA Boris Becker (SGD220) are available at PUMA retail stores and selected wholesalers.
