PUMA and the Pink+Dolphin label have once again collaborated on a line of apparel and sneakers that motivate men to explore the full color wheel from solid, earth colors (green, blue, black, brown) to colors of the sea (pink, light blue, aqua, gray). National lifestyle apparel and footwear retailer, #footaction continues to be the store which highlights this collaboration with the line appearing in stores on September 23rd.

They had a launch party at El Toro Blanco, Mexican Restaurant and tequila bar at 257 Avenue of the Americas, Lower Manhattan, in New York City. Pink Dolphin's owners, Cena Barhaghi and Neima Khalia were in attendance at the event.

Finally, the usual graphic tees give many options to combine with denim jeans, khaki shorts, white shorts, etc.  #pinkdolphin #streetwear
