The next PUMA Suede collaboration in celebration of its 50th anniversary will come with PUMA ambassador, Grammy-award winning artist, and creative partner, The Weeknd.
The XO x PUMA Suede is a remix of the iconic silhouette and The Weeknd’s sexy, edgy sound. He pays homage to the legend by delivering a mid-cut boot with a military feel. Available in three colorways, the contemporary design is clean yet gritty. Instead of laces, there are buckle straps wrapping around the toe and ankle of the shoes. “19” sits at the center of one tongue, “68” at the other, paying homage to the year the Suede was born. Each sole is speckled like concrete.
The black boot is fully monochromatic plush Suede atop a speckled gum sole. The glacier gray is all gray everything with silver metallic buckles on the straps and a gray speckled sole. The black and white boot goes wild with the black suede upper wrapped in white straps and metallic black buckles. Not only does the white Formstrip jump against the black, it pops atop a thick white sole with black speckles.
Look for the XO x PUMA Suede to release in all three colorways on puma.com and selecr PUMA retailers on August 11th.
