Puma Suede Tommie Smith “Mexico City Olympics” Silent Protest

Puma Suede Tommie Smith Back View

Fight the power! I am not sure I would have done it, and I am not even sure it was the best place to do it either, but it sure made an impact in the rough and tumble 1960’s.

What am I talking about?

Tommie Smith, an Olympian for the 1968 Olympics, won gold and while on the medal stand, he put of a fist and bowed his head. I am sure there are pictures on the net somewhere

1968 Olympics - Silent Protest

Anyway, these are on sale at Mita (never shopped there before, but may have to in order to get these sneakers). I do not know if they are limited or if they will show up in other shops.
