PumaCity2-WorldCup-SampleSaleShop

The World Cup invasion has begun, and Puma is taking over the Big Apple this summer with their Puma City. We caught up with them yesterday down at the South Street Seaport and with a little persuasion from SampleSaleShop we were able to get an exclusive sneak peek. From June 11th-July 11th, it’s gonna be football by day, and parties by night! The big Puma City launch is this Friday, June 11th and it’s going to be a party you don’t want to miss! Peep through our gallery to see the shots we took of Puma’s soccer fields, merch, the photobooth, schedule, and more.
