Usain Bolt, Winnie Harlow, Elaine Thompson Models Puma At NYFW
Usain Bolt, a sprinting hero, debuted on the Puma runway on Tuesday as New York Fashion Week got began, adding runway model to his long list of accomplishments that now includes star athlete and music producer.
Along with Elaine Thompson-Herah, the holder of the 200-meter world record, and Jamaican model Winnie Harlow, Usain Bolt put on his or her fiercest modeling persona as they walked in the June Ambrose-curated digital creations.
The Puma event called the “Futrograde,” drew on several celebrity collaborators like footballer Neymar who scanned his sneakers to get into the event.
According to the powerhouse sports brand that’s well-known for its athletic wear, the latest line showcases Puma’s diversity, sustainability, unisex wear, and the metaverse as the country shifts into its 75th year of being established.
During the runway walk, Elaine Thompson-Herah switches up her gait from her typical record-setting run on the track to a graceful Gazelle walking almost in slow motion. Walker-Herah keeps her face serious as she struts in a green bodysuit with matching gloves, a navy blue cut-out windbreaker, and thigh-high boots that lace up at the front.
Usain Bolt also was seen in a line of models that included Winnie Harlow. With a smile on his face, Bolt also stopped to strike his now trademarked “To Di World” sign that became iconic after his Olympic world record race in Tokyo in 2008.
“Country Yute at @Puma New York Fashion Week #PumaFutrograde #nyfw,” Bolt wrote on his Instagram account.
The event was held at Cipriani and has since gone viral due to the experiential elements featuring the new 3-D Nitro NFRNO and Nitro Fastroid sneakers.
The limited-edition physical sneakers and “Black Station,” which includes NFTS, are the first of the fashion company’s footwear to reach the metaverse, according to the statement.
Several Jamaican celebrities, like Cham, who wrote, “Watch E Walk!!! Blood Clxxt!!,” Charly Black, Ding Dong, Beenie Man, and others, praised Usain Bolt in the meantime.
Winnie Harlow also savored the moment she walked with the Jamaican sprint legend.
“Can’t believe I got to walk with you legend!! What a blessing! Career pinnacle I could’ve never dreamt of,” she wrote under his post.
