"Working with PUMA to craft the first women's signature basketball sneaker in the last 12 years was an honor," says Stewart. "I hope this is the first in a legacy of signature sneakers to come for women athletes across all sports and serves as inspiration for all young people that this, along with any achievement, is possible."
An apparel pack of nine items will also launch with the Stewie 1: the Stewie packable jacket, Stewie packable snap pants, Stewie sports bra, Stewie shorts, Stewie crewneck, Stewie leggings, Stewie graphic Tee, AOP graphic tee and a Stewie jersey. Stewart's first product collaboration with PUMA – the Overdue apparel capsule– was unveiled in October. Retailing for $35-$140, the Stewie 1 and accompanying apparel will be available this fall in North America on PUMA.com, at the PUMA NYC Flagship store
"Throughout her career, Breanna has always been a champion for athletes both on and off the court," says Adam Petrick, chief brand officer, PUMA. "A signature sneaker was long overdue, and our team at PUMA has been proud to work with her to see this come to life. Just as importantly, we are excited to see athletes of all ages, backgrounds and genders wearing The Stewie 1 as a reminder that equal representation and access is a must in sports."
