Like I said before with the Donatelo Dunks that poped up earlier this year....Nike has offically took control over the game!!! Seriously!!!! I can't describe how sick this pair is!!! They got the Turtle Green Suede on the sides plus the spackle of what it seems to be Orange along the mid-sole. But on the cool the color looks Red to me so maybe they are the Rafael Dunks??? Idk. We gonna have to see a better pic of these but I'm really anticipating a Ninja Turtle Pack from Nike sometime this year!!!

These are all patent leather to you uninlightened!!! Which are sick!!!! But peep the catch....they don't have a release date damnit!! Because I would surely get these with the quickness!!! These shits are beautiful!!! So damn swell looking that I would 1 and done these and put them in on ICE!!! Real Talk.....I'd say if they do come out be prepared to drop about $125-150!!! They well worth it!!

Yo if you dont know Tommie Smith is you need to copy and paste his name from this post and Google him....like ASAP!! Dude was a Gold Medalist in the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City and he was stripped of his Gold Medal in the 200yd dash(19.83 sec) because he rasied his fist in protest of the war in '68 during the playing of The Star Spangled Banner(see pic above). He was accompanied by John Carlos who was also stripped of his medal.
Thank me later for the history lesson....but here is where Puma comes into play. Tommie and John both protested barefoot to represent the poverty in Black society. All you can do is wow at the symbolisim of the these two men and the shoe. In a way this isn't enough to me.....these men have yet to recieve their medals and thats sad. These men ran the race and competeted to represent their country...not for Puma's!!!(No offense lol) But I honestly think they deserve what they earned after all these years. It's inspiring but sad to me. But shout out to Puma for showing their respect to these two men. Although John Carlos doesn't have a pair....the presence is still felt. And if you pay close attention to the sneakers....it's little black fist printed all over the shoe!!!! Kudos to Puma!!!! They are doing it big already. And just in time for the summer Olypics this year. Look out for them in August!!!
Here is a lil something from Nike. Just a couple plain colorways to stop all the hypebeasting for a minute!!! Because the past year I have never seen Dunks so high in demand. I swear at one time I felt alone rocking Dunks then "Attack of The Hypebeast" came and here we are today lol lol. No hate on hypebeast tho....if it wasn't for them Nike would be cranking out massive redundance of AF1's lol lol. So Nike owes atleast 500,000 people a free pair of kicks lol. But I like these....especially the "Laker" colorway and no I'm not a fan(Go Cavs!! We Believe!!) but the gum bottom is hot!! Not to mention that it Ostrich print on the sides of all these. Man I swear once again I'm nicknaming Packs agian.....Somebody tell Nike to holler at me!!! lol
