Welcome to Puffer Reds

adidas

Our partners at adidas were very excited to join us in providing this opportunity. While we are a retailer, we also focus on our community and we value adidas for supporting our mission/efforts. 

Puffer Reds

was once known as the neighborhood record store with an influence in fashion. 40 YEARS later we are still standing as a respected streetwear retailer in our community.

To commemorate our roots and celebrate Black Music Month, we partnered with adidas to create a scholarship opportunity for local Washtenaw County students.

Though President Carter declared June Black Music Month with the event in 1979, and black music institutions celebrated every June thereafter, Black Music Month didn’t become an official observation until 2000. Dyana Williams [co-founder of BMM and wife of Black Music Association (BMA) co-founder Kenny Gamble] discovered in the late ‘90s that President Carter didn’t issue an official decree. So she worked with her local congresswoman to draft House Resolution 509, better known as The African-American Music Bill. In its official form, the bill — signed by former president Bill Clinton — called for a formal acknowledgment and celebration of black music’s contribution to and impact on American life and culture. This is the spirit in which we observe Black Music Month today.
