For many people their first memories of collectible culture was buying and trading Panini stickers with your mates at school. Now, PUMA and Panini have linked up to drop a real collector's item.
To celebrate 50 years of the iconic PUMA Suede, the sneaker giants are dropping a series of limited-edition Suedes and the latest in that series sees them join forces with football sticker giant Panini for a release that celebrates passion for sport and the spirit of collecting.
The PUMA x Panini Suede is a delight for football-conscious sneakerheads, with features inspired by Panini's classic collectible stickers. The Grey-Black suede upper is embossed with Panini Authentic branding all-over print and a collector’s mantra printed on the bottom of the classic thick soles: GOT, GOT on one shoe and NEED, GOT on the other. The left tongue is emblazoned with the Suede 50 badge while the right rocks the Authentic Panini x PUMA logo. Both tongue labels are removable to switch the style up or – as collectors do – trade.
Each pair of PUMA x Panini Suede comes in a specially designed Suede 50 holographic box, with a poster and a set of stickers featuring football legends Diego Maradona and Gianluigi Buffon as well as young guns Antoine Griezmann and Hector Bellerin.
The PUMA x Panini Suede drops on July 7th at END Clothing, Hanon, 5Pointz, PUMA stores, and puma.com. Share your Suedes with the hashtag #ForAllTime.
