PUMA is working with Nintendo for a footwear collection inspired by the successful “Animal Crossing” franchise.
The PUMA x “Animal Crossing: New Horizons” crossover takes cues from the video game with streetwear silhouettes that feature colors and graphics from the franchise. The collaboration includes styles for adults and kids, including the Suede, Wild Rider and Future Rider shoe silhouettes.
The Suede features a beige suede upper, triple formstrip icon with printed graphics on the top layer, translucent sole with graphic imprint, tongue label with debossed co-branding, a leaf hangtag and includes a canvas lace bag inspired by the game’s bell bag.
The Wild Rider silhouette has a beige nylon upper adorned with an Animal Crossing resident print with green, blue and sand suede overlays, a translucent formstrip on the side, an embroidered leaf on the heel and a debossed lace tag with Puma’s logo.
The Future Rider is constructed with nylon, canvas and suede overlays and the silhouette features a debossed leaf graphic on the heel, taken directly from the Animal Crossing logo.
The collection also includes clothing ranging from short and long sleeve tees to hoodies, shorts and sweatpants, all in the color palette of the game.
