The late Nipsey Hussle was hard at work on his brand, The Marathon Clothing, right up until his untimely death early this year. Among the outcry of support from fans, his family confirmed that they would continue working with PUMA to bring Nipsey’s unique vision to life, with a forthcoming collection designed in partnership with Nipsey himself, prior to his passing.

Though more collaborations may be on the way, this eagerly-awaited range serves as a fitting capstone to Nipsey’s work with PUMA, even if it’s the final collaborative effort. From tracksuits to work jackets, the entire collection was cut to serve Nipsey’s measurements, making for a collection literally tailor-made for the late rapper.

The aforementioned work jackets, offered in black and beige, come with matching pants that also sport “MARATHON” embroidery, making for a hardwearing counterpart to the red sweatsuit and black/red tracksuit, all emblazoned with PUMA and The Marathon Clothing logos, side by side. T-shirts embroidered with the latter brand’s mission statement accompany co-branded graphic tees and other marathon-indebted imagery, a sporty counterpoint to the two distinctive PUMA California sneakers, executed in black and white iterations with thematic red accents.

All The Marathon Clothing x PUMA goods will exclusively be available on Shoe Palace’s web store and physical outposts September 5, with all profits donated to the newly-established Neighborhood Nip Foundation.

Meanwhile, Nipsey’s protégé Buddy honors his late mentor in the latest HYPEBEAST Magazine issue.

Our team is proud to announce that our first collaborative capsule with Puma drops on September 5th 2019. Nipsey spearheaded this project from concept to final product over the course of last year, flying to meetings, reviewing samples, bringing in material references he liked, and most importantly ensuring that it reflected his style authentically with no compromise. Each detail from logo placement, fit, colorways, and materials was thoughtfully done. His signature style and DNA can be found in each garment that’s part of this collection from the khaki suit to the tracksuit. This project is very special to our team and we’re handling it with the utmost care to ensure it’s delivered exactly as Nipsey envisioned it. It’s a privilege for us to honor his commitment and carry out this project for people to receive a personally curated collection by Nip Hussle Tha Great.
