Project: PUMA XR Runner Groundhog Day!

By - September 6th, 2007

PUMA is taking a less serious note to the normal holiday inspired sneakers with this humorous Groundhog Day inspired XR Runner. In addition to the fur and grass like materials, one shoe will have a shadow and one shoe will not. Groundhog Day or Groundhog’s Day is a North American traditional holiday dating back to the 1800s…

“In traditional weather lore, if a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day and fails to see its shadow because the weather is cloudy, winter will soon end. If the groundhog sees its shadow because the weather is bright and clear, it will be frightened and run back into its hole, and the winter will continue for six more weeks.” – Wikipedia

Groundhog Day is celebrated February 2nd, expect these near the celebration. Details on availability to come near the release date.
