Muallem about his work:

"When first taking a close look at the simple white colored Adidas Century I instantly remembered the old school days. A simple classic sneaker, comfortable to wear, suitable to each and every outfit. Best to take off once the train is done...

I first thought of customizing the shoes in a very bright colorful way with my logo printed on top in several disco colors. Nevertheless I realized that too much stuff would destroy the natural beauty of the sneakers and decided to work solely on the texture since I wanted to create a design I would wear myself and not something that remains in galleries and exhibitions. Functionality should always be incorporated into a shoe design. Additionally I was quite frustrated about the products offered by the sneaker industry within the past few years, pure sell-out, and the more color ways available the better. Fuck that!

First I cut off the three stripes in order to make the shoe even simpler, but left the stitches in order to create some tension within the simplicity. I perforated holes into the side area that was zoned by a single stitch line because I felt that this part of the shoe would add some dynamics. I realized that it looks a bit like an arrow pointing towards the back of the
shoe. The holes quite highlighted that area and added some beautiful but rough design to the shoe. Then I further highlighted that area by painting it grey. Grey because there was already a slightly different grey tone in the front area of the shoe and I wanted the shoe to contain various off-white tones. Somehow complex but still simple and classic. Finally I added a logo tag of mine that I attached to the shoe by using a vintage leather band and sprayed my logo in white on top of the shoebox. I wanted to create a product that could easily be displayed in stores without indicating that it¹s a handmade custom design. My intention was to cover all aspects of designing a pair of sneakers. The result is obvioussuitable to each and every outfitsome hint of street and lemon but still slick...MUALLEM Adicolor!"

New Berlin exhibitions in may.

Solebox will open the comming month withe the Puma Clyde exibition. Please click on the images!



Here the press-info (only in german! I'm to lazy to translate..........)

Der PUMA Clyde ist für PUMA wohl einer der beliebtesten und bedeutendsten Schuhe aus vergangenen Tagen und gehört seit seiner Markteinführung im Jahr 1973 zur zeitgenössischen Turnschuhkultur. Der Clyde war der erste Signatur-Sneaker im Basketball. Diese Version des beliebten PUMA Suede wurde speziell für die Basketballlegende Walt „Clyde“ Frazier angefertigt. Mit seinem Spitznamen „Clyde“ – nach dem Film Bonnie and Clyde - wurde Frazier im Laufe seiner Karriere sowohl auf dem Spielfeld als auch außerhalb zu einem Pionier in seiner Rolle als Stilikone.

Alle im Rahmen des Programms „From the PUMA Archive“ vorgestellten Produkte sind Neuauflagen aus PUMAs berühmter Sportlifestylegeschichte. Bei der Neuauflage wurden exakte Repliken mit modernisierten Farben oder Materialien kombiniert, so dass das Wesentliche des Originals erhalten wurde. Der vor kurzem neu aufgelegte PUMA Clyde vereint Originalfarbtöne mit einer Palette neuer Farbkombinationen.

Weitere Informationen zur Ausstellungstour und zu den Clyde und PUMA Archives finden Sie auf der Website www.archives.puma.com.
