Top 10 Puma Sneakers Of 2021
- Haribo x PUMA Suede
German confectionery company Haribo and the sportswear giant PUMA offered us an all-new collaboration – Haribo x PUMA Suede. Inspired by the original Haribo packaging, the Suedes come in all-over red, green, and yellow colorways, designed from supple suede on the upper and having a translucent sole with the graphic Goldbears print. The branding on the low-tops comes with the customary Formstrip and PUMA Suede hit on the side, in addition to Haribo debossing on the heels and co-branding on the tongue. Furthermore, enhancing the look for the shoe is a gummy bear on the heels with a Haribo Goldbear hangtag completing the design of the shoe.
2. Rhuigi Villasenor x PUMA Suede
The Rhuigi Villasenor x PUMA Suede comes with a premium material execution, as leather and suede are mixed together across the upper. Around the back, the shoes consist of a faux crocodile leather heel tap that further adds to the luxe composition. The Formstrip on the side comes in a green shade, perfectly contrasting with the light-colored base. The collaboration is signified with a co-branded label on the tongue and printed insoles. To complete the design, the Suedes come with fat laces.
3. Liberty x PUMA Wild Rider 2
Inspired by traditional Toile de Jouy patterns, Puma and Liberty London come together on a collaborative collection inclusive of the Wild Rider 2. A textile upper is designed with a mixture of leather and suede overlays for a bold and dimensional finish. Printed imagery highlights the floral theme whereas soft notes of pink are highlighted on the rubber outsole, cotton laces, and inner lining.
4. PUMA Suede VTG WTT Formstrip
The collaboration comes in a two-pack, as a part of which both colorways arrive in a mix and match of hues ranging from white and black to more eye-catching colors, such as orange, red, blue, and yellow. The makers have kept the construction and design of the model as close to the original Suede as possible. The vamp is kept shorter, while the suede logo seen on the quarter panel of modern versions has been removed. The tongue also features a raw edge construction.
5. Black Fives x PUMA Suede Classic
PUMA teamed up with the nonprofit Black Fives Foundation to create a collection in honor of the first professional black basketball teams in America. These early-twentieth-century pioneers paved the way for today’s basketball superstars. The sneaker features a suede upper with recyclable mesh lining across. Moving on top, the sneakers attribute woven tongue labels and perforated quarters while branding comes across the quarter, heels, and tongue.
6. J. Cole x PUMA RS-Dreamer “E-Line”
Running from Jamaica, Queens to lower Manhattan, the “E Line” is also known as the “Blue Line,” because of which the RS-Dreamer is drenched in a duo of blue shades. A rich sport blue covers the majority of the upper and midsole, while a chilly ice blue contributes contrast on the lateral forefoot and medial midfoot overlays, the midsole’s heel and the tongue’s branded hit. Cole’s Dreamville logo appears on the heel, and the unique lacing system snakes around the collar to add texture. Cushioning and comfort are provided by the midsole’s ProFoam technology, which is combined with running foam from the PUMA RS series for a hybrid feel.
7. PUMA Future Rider “Super Mario 64”
To commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Super Mario Bros., PUMA brought up the PUMA Future Rider “Super Mario 64”, as a homage to Mario’s many adventures.
Classic mesh uppers with suede overlays are embellished by a removable badge showing off Mario in his iconic red and blue outfit. Moving down, we notice additional details like bricks on the midsole, a wing embellishment on the heel, Mario’s logo on the hangtag, and even graphics on the sock liner.
8. PUMA Court Rider “Rugrats”
Honoring the 30th anniversary of the original “Rugrats” series, PUMA and Nickelodeon partnered to create the PUMA Court Rider “Rugrats.” The silhouette blends PUMA design with cues from the beloved 1990s television program. The iconic suede-covered silhouette opts in for the most understated look of the bunch, donning a predominantly black ensemble complemented by hits of orange, purple and blue. The pair mostly indulges in shades of teal, while boasting equally eye-catching hits of yellow, purple, and orange across its upper and sole unit. “Rugrats”- related branding appears across the tongue and sock-liner.
9. AKA BOKU x PUMA RS-Concert
French artist, Aka Boku adds his signature touch with the colorful comic book-inspired graphics and energetic color combinations for footwear that makes one stand out from the crowd.
The sneakers arrive with a low boot, mesh upper and translucent TPU overlaying. The sneaker is equipped with a MEVA midsole and rubber outsole. The tongue features a graphic print and a TPU piece. The lace closure element provides a snug fit. The molded TPU PUMA Formstrip outline appears on the medial and lateral sides of the pair whereas the Aka Boku graphic prints grace the midsole and the quarters.
10. PUMA PWRFrame OP-1 “Abstract”
The PUMA PWRFrame OP-1 “Abstract” combines a range of eye-catching hues like neon yellow and orange, with more subtle tones such as gray, white and black. The sneaker’s crown jewel is its PWRFrame technology embedded in the heel of the midsole which acts as a continuous ring of support that extends from the heel to the midfoot. It provides the wearer the added support and stability making it a comfortable shoe for the long haul.
