puma-icra-trainer

There was a Puma shoe that was very popular with graffiti writers in DC in the early 90s. It was worn by those who didn’t wear gazelles or had moved on from gazelles, and came in an assortment of colors. I think our friend Roger Gastman had purple? From the look of this Icra Trainer model, Puma might be bringing that shoe back. Or maybe this is that shoe? 20+ years of footwear leaves holes in the memory.

In an effort to reduce widespread foreign name scratching on the Great Wall, Chinese authorities are establishing designated ‘graffiti’ zones in towers close to popular stretches of the famous monument. As far as how an “electronic graffiti board” would be helpful… who the hell knows? Those screens can be etched too.
