The story behiond their creation is told by their maker, Benji Blunt:
"Around five years ago I took up a new hobby. I had been a teacher and DJ and found myself as a stay at home dad with a young boy and a baby boy. Always needing to be doing something creative, like an itch that needs a scratch; I painted an adidas Superstar 80s in my size.
I had chosen the Trojan Records label as my theme as I was a great fan of the iconography and the output of the label. It was my intention to wear them, but I was always too scared to. I really liked them and that made it hard to put a crease in them.
Ultimately, I decided that I should give them to someone who would appreciate and wear them.
I managed to get the guys at eatmoreshoes and Trojan to come together and raise a few quid for charity, by auctioning them.
I made a few more last year on different silhouettes, and the Pumas are one of those pairs.
I painted the canvas vamp and added details to the heel badge.
I made a new tongue with Jimmy Cliff centre, guns blazing! Even printed up some 7" slip mats. My mate at BboyLaces came through with some extra laces that I put custom aglets on. I have stored away my paintbrushes now, in favour of hammer and pliers.
I'm retraining as a bespoke shoemaker and I'm hoping to make some handmade Trojan shoes in the future.
Hopefully I won't be too scared to wear those!"
