The RISE X PUMA BLAZE OF GLORY NEW YORK IS FOR LOVERS is designed to raise people’s awareness of HIV and AIDS.

The cause is very close to RISE co-founder Chase Ceparano’s heart, as he lost his father to the disease when he was a child. The upper is constructed in a combination of bright premium leather, suede and mesh, which is broken up by the black plastic lace stays and lining. The black continues onto the midsole, with red branding and speckling to tie in perfectly with the upper. Finishing touches include embossed RISE branding on the heels, lace dubraes that feature the AIDS ribbon and ‘NYIFL’ on the left and right foot respectively and die-cut hearts at the heel, with reflective material underneath.

Whilst the shoe calls attention to the cause for education about HIV and AIDS, RISE and PUMA are going one step further by making a joint $15,000 donation to the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amFAR). Good causes aside, the combination of red and black will never get old, so we think these will prove popular.

The RISE X PUMA BLAZE OF GLORY NEW YORK IS FOR LOVERS drops on TUESDAY 1 DECEMBER (World AIDS Day) at a special pop-up store in NYC. Keep checking back with us for updates on if and when these will receive a wider release.
