A shoe with roots so deeply ingrained in hip-hop, there’s no wonder brands with strong connections to the music community have been putting their own twist on this iconic model. The Puma Suede has been around since the inception of rap and hip-hop, and has since stood the test of time. This model is notorious for its connection to the B-Boy community during the 1980s where you could find people break-dancing and pop-locking in cities throughout the US.
This time, the folks over at Puma are teaming up with Davon Wilson, better known as Jasper Dolphin, founding member of the Odd Future collective. Jasper, a performing artist and TV and internet personality, is probably most known for his role on Odd Future’s Adult Swim sketch comedy show, Loiter Squad. However, Jasper is also known for having his own clothing line, Pink Dolphin. The Pink Dolphin clothing line is all about promoting positive vibes and embodying exclusivity. Jasper prides himself on the exclusivity of his products to keep the streets from becoming saturated.
This timeless low-top sneaker will be featured in two different color ways (black and light blue), features Japanese characters across the body, canvas ankle panels, and a translucent outsole showcasing a wavy pattern and Pink Dolphin Logo. This is the perfect shoe to help you stunt while at pool parties this summer.
Be sure to head into the Woodfield Mall Finish Line (Schaumburg, IL) for this collaboration on June 30th to add a pair to your summer rotation.

Ever since the debut last year, the FENTY x PUMA Creeper has been a hit on the streets. Rihanna has brought not only her personality to the brand with textures like suede and velvet, but now things are going to a patent leather level. On her latest design with PUMA, two classic colors are getting a makeover. At first glance, these sneakers have a easy-to-love black and white appeal, but when paying attention to detail, the texture of crinkled leather plays its part in all the right ways. Keep it causal, or dress them up with something nice. Either way, the sleek, glossy appearance will have you feelin’ on top of your sneaker game.

Pretty in PUMA 💖 Ladies, another PUMA drop is on the way, and it’s got plenty of style and is ready to play. The PUMA Fierce is no stranger to the sneaker world and its newest iteration is inspired by the art of ballet and the beauty and strength of the elusive black swan.
Denise Smith De Los Santos, head of PUMA Global Apparel Design for Running and Training took a few moments to tell us the inspiration behind the PUMA Swan Collection. Denise says that this pack reflects the beauty, power, and grace that a swan possesses. Designers in both Boston and Germany worked relentlessly to create the perfect materials and prints to effectively demonstrate the elegance of this pack. All the details in these pieces were strategically created for optimum performance while still featuring a playful and versatile look.
PUMA enlisted the help of the New York City Ballet to bring these pieces to life. With the help if Mimi in the PUMA Basket and Olivia in the PUMA Fierce Strap, you can really get the full inspiration and ballet vibes. Each piece in this collection has some iridescent details that were inspired by the feathers of the rare black swan. From the Power Mesh to the lush velvet accents, this collection focuses on the functionality while experimenting with different shapes and some volume in some of the tops.
If you want something fun and stylish, but still comfortable and supportive enough for training then opt for the PUMA Fierce Strap. The feather details, PUMA branding on the strap, and iridescent logo on the toe box make this sneaker a definite head-turner. If you’re into cute and minimal, then check out the PUMA Basket. The sleek silhouette mixed with the smooth black upper and iridescent pops are definitely eye catching.
The PUMA Swan Collection is coming to FinishLine.com on Wednesday, February 1st.

Look alive, look alive. If you’re trying to find a gift for someone with standout style, please believe the PUMA Sky II Hi is what they need to look so far out of sight. They come in a clean black and white colorway as well as the ⚡️electrifying royal blue⚡️ that @jxmmis is wearing.
Young Thug! Another hot artist that supports the PUMA classics. @thuggerthugger1 is rockin’ the black/white colorway of the PUMA Suede paired with a PUMA track suit. You may be thinking, “DIS TEW MUCH”, but the suit is cozy and retro vibes never truly fade. 🙌🏼
If the full track suit look isn’t for him, ease him into the game with just the PUMA T7 Track Jacket. It’s ultra soft cotton makes this a versatile piece that he can layer throughout all the seasons. You can find the jacket in black/white or heather grey/white that Young Thug had on. 👌🏼
@TheWeeknd is changing the game up. With Starboy coming out 11/25, we know he had to make sure he was rockin’ the latest from PUMA. The Ignite EvoKnit is a new model this season that features a dope high top silhouette. A sock-like fit makes the upper feel like it was custom made while the Ignite foam midsole provides flexibility. These will be the gift that keeps on giving.
