Nineties Trainers Updated For World Cup
Puma is tying in the release of its latest trainer pack with the upcoming Fifa World Cup. It comes as a number of brands look to capitalise on the summer event, with items such as clothing and watches.
The firm has updated the spec of its original nineties Trinomic running shoe, producing the new XT2 and Disc Blaze models with a Brazilian theme.
Produced in two colourways inspired by training cones used by players in the tournament, the 2014 Fluro Mesh Evolution Pack in orange and yellow features a mix of mesh under and suede overlays.
The XT2 maintains its original shape while the Disc Blaze returns with its clickable closure system, which tightens uppers via an internal wire system.
High visibility formstripe branding and a breathable mesh — taken from Puma’s Faas running footwear — also sits on top of a specked grey mid-sole.
According to the firm, the use of performance fabrics is designed “to update and add richness” to the original versions.
The news follows another announcement from the sports firm, which recently revealed it was partnering with Alexander McQueen on a series of limited edition football boots.
