Beautiful, elegant, passionate, yet with a bit of mystery, the ancient Chinese believed people born in the Year of the Snake have personalities not of the snake itself, but that of a snake charmer. Similarly, designers at PUMA also created a special collection with many of those personalities in mind. Aptly named “CNY: Year of the Snake”, the collection encompassed three classic silhouettes, including the PUMA Mid seen here. Designated as the PUMA Mid Snake Commercial with its vibrant leather upper and lush suede formstrip, the design celebrates elements of the Snake Year in its snakeskin pattern ankle collar. In addition, branded on the tongue tag is the word “snake” in classical Chinese script.
While Chinese New Year celebration will not be till February 10, 2013, you can start early with your PUMA Mid Snake Commercial “Year of the Snake” edition when its available on January 1st.
