Originally designed to be a lightweight running shoe for performance purposes, the PUMA Bluebird became a staple in terrace culture and holds a special place in the heart of Cardiff City FC’s passionate fan base. Because of the Bluebirds blue/yellow colourway and reference to the clubs nickname ‘The Bluebirds’, the shoe soon became a part of the lifestyle in and around ‘Ninian Park’ in the early ’80s.
The reissue here stays true to the original, with a full suede upper and ‘gum’ style colour injected into the PVC outsole unit. There’s two colour choices, a royal blue and a cranberry, with both utilising yellow accents throughout the upper. Both shoes are seriously striking and really carry the classic PUMA style.
Celebrating this much anticipated re-release, size? recently put on a special launch party in Cardiff. The shoe itself will be exclusively available at the size? Cardiff store from today, Saturday 13th August, and releasing on the size? website the following Saturday (July 20th), with a capsule collection and matching apparel to accompany it.
