Puma City – Boston

leave a comment »

Yesterday I was lucky enough to visit Puma City, in the Boston ports, for its final day of operations in the country. Puma City is a mobile shop/ bar/ lounge from Puma that was in Boston for almost a month to support the Puma Ocean Racing team.

Composed completely of shipping containers, Puma City has won a slew of awards for the functionality, mobility, and innovation of the structure.

The bottom two floors act as a retail space while there are bars, lounges, and decks on the upper two floors.

Great signage all over the place.

Volvo was another sponsor of the event and outside they had a full to scale model of a Volvo made completely of Legos.

Yesterday was the last chance to catch Puma City in Boston but the containers should be shipping out to other ports around the World now as this was the only stop in the US.

Some stats on the award winning piece of mobile architecture…
Number of Containers: 24
Height: 40 Feet, 3 stories
Weight: 3000,000 kgs (660,000 lbs)
Square Feet: 11,000 square feet
Number of Bolts: 3,700
Number of Usain Bolts: 1
Number of Screws: 15,000
Assembly: 2 weeks, 2 cranes, 1 forklift, 1 scissor lift, 20 workers, 6000 man hours

Bodega x Puma Spy Hi x SwaggerDap -Round2

with 6 comments

1st allow me to appologize to you, the readers, for the weekend hiatus … i mean 1 post? damn we slacked off.
But we had a good excuse, the trip to Boston for the Bodega x Puma Spy Hi

As you saw, we we’re there dumb early to be in front, but the line grew steadily all morning….

this is about 30 minutes before open

all for this shoe:


couldn’t just stop at 1 tho……

(as always, you can click the pics for the larger & detailed images)

Overall, I’ve got to say, Boston was great (minus the roads), Bodega and all the staff there were really great, and you know the shoes are greatest of the year so far! The detail on them is ever crazier in person.

Boston, we will be back very soon (morse code books ready) …. and hopefully we picked up a fan or two already
