The Bunyip is Loose!

  • Written on:

Talk of a rare sighting kept the streets and the sneaker universe abuzz as Sneaker Freaker and PUMA finally release their latest collaboration, the Bunyip, in Melbourne last Saturday.

Sneakerheads were in for a wild jungly treat at the Carlton’s Hasti Bala room that looked like a cross between “Where the Wild Things Are” and Bush Tuckers dinner. The setting looked every bit like a Bunyip’s lair, except for the free flowing drinks, cool kids hanging out and Hans DC on deck. Everyone was just raring to get a glimpse and try on the suede beast. Catching everyone’s attention besides the Bunyips was Bigfoot jumping around menacing people. Random but something you would expect for this kind of party. Shout out to Acclaim Magazine for tagging along 13th Witness and Ricky Powell to the bash. It was definitely a night of rare occurrences. As a closing treat, a couple of Bunyips were given out in a lucky draw.

Sneaker Freaker’s main man, Woody, personally showed the Bunyips around and spoke about how rad the specs are. It’s true - only when it’s in its natural habitat that you truly appreciate the majestic splendor if this exotic creature.

The Sneaker Freaker x PUMA Bunyip footwear, wind jacket, and tee are available at select PUMA Stores and stockists in Asia-Pacific starting May 2012.

Special thanks to Woody and Sneaker Freaker.
