PUMA Officially Unveils Its Collaboration With ‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’
Get ready to go on an island getaway with this latest collaboration between PUMA and Animal Crossing™: New Horizons. Tom Nook and other favourite characters from the popular franchise are featured in a variety of styles, including apparel and footwear for adults and kids. You won’t trade your new outfit for anything.
There are three silhouettes involved in this playful capsule: Suede, Wave Rider and the Future Rider. The Suede is fashioned with a beige hairy suede base layer and comes devised with triple stacked side stripes that bear leafy graphics from Tom Nook’s aloha-style shirt. In addition, the shoes are formed with translucent sole pieces, tongue labels that feature a co-branded hit and a leaf hangtag.
The movement of city life is what inspires the Wave Rider installment of this assemblage. Nylon uppers are executed with a beige tone and come decorated with an Animal Crossing resident print atop the toe boxes and quarters. Adjacent to these details are a translucent formstrip, along with sand, blue and green suede overlays and an embroidered leaf insignia that arrives on the heels.
Lastly, the adventurous Future Rider completes the pack. Top halves alternate between nylon, canvas and suede materials and feature the Animal Crossing leaf logo on the heels. Its various overlays call upon minty teals and dusted pinks and purples for styling and the TPU mold that’s planted on the lower lateral heel references the video game’s design elements.
Dropping alongside the kicks are matching apparel that includes a character-adorned pullover hoodie, a tee that’s dressed with all-over leaf patterns, a long-sleeved tee sweatpants and shorts.
