The Weeknd x Puma Suede Collab Revealed: First Look
In celebration of the Puma Suede’s 50th anniversary, PUMA has tapped into creatives, designers, and artists, including The Weeknd, to put their spin on the iconic sneaker.
The Suede 50 PUMA x XO collab is a remix of the iconic silhouette, as The Weeknd pays homage to the legendary sneaker by delivering a mid-cut boot with a military feel. Available in three colorways, the contemporary design goes laceless, instead opting for buckle straps that wrap around the toe and ankle of the shoes. Additional details include a “19” which sits at the center of one tongue and “68” at the other, as a nod to the year the Puma Suede was born.
The black boot features a fully monochromatic plush Suede atop a speckled gum sole. The "Glacier Gray" rendition includes silver metallic buckles on the straps and a gray speckled sole, and the black and white boot features a black suede upper wrapped in white straps and metallic black buckles, accompanied by a thick, white sole with black speckles.
The Weeknd’s collaborative PUMA Suede is set to release on August 11.
