Puma Collaborates With Sneakers76 for Limited Edition Release
PUMA celebrates the 10th anniversary of Sneakers76, the cult sneaker shop based in Taranto, Italy, featuring an exclusive version of the iconic sneaker, Blaze of Glory.
For the new Blaze of Glory iteration, PUMA and Sneakers76 chose story “The Legend of the Dolphin” and the symbol as inspiration. Ancient legends tell that Taranto was founded by the god Taras, son of Poseidon. During a sea-voyage, Taras was shipwrecked off the coast of Taranto and was rescued by a dolphin. To thank Poseidon for coming to his aid through that dolphin, Taras founded the city of Taranto.
The PUMA x Sneakers76 Blaze of Glory SOFT have premium suede uppers with colors that take cues from the dolphin depicted on the Taranto city emblem. The lace guards come in suede brown while the numbers of pairs are marked in gold on the heels. The emblem of Taranto city is etched in gold and situated on the heels as well. Depicting the color of the wave crests is the white midsole with ‘water drop’ effetcs and the Sea Blue color of the outer sole. Finishing off the sneaker design is a sockliner with the PUMA and Sneakers76 logos embossed in leather.
Exclusive for Sneakers76, each pair of shoes will have its History Box 03/04 from the saga "A Tale Through Stories, Legends and Symbols of our Teritory". Created to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Sneakers76, the four boxes book together make up an encyclopedia. Inside the History Box a cleaning kit supported by Jason Markk.
The PUMA x Sneakers76 is scheduled to release on Tuesday, Dec. 20, in Sneakers76 and select sneaker retailers globally.
