PUMA x Haribo
German confectionery company Haribo and the sportswear giant PUMA follow up on their collaboration from May with yet another reworked sneaker, this time around taking on the Suede Triplex as well as apparel pieces.
Served up in a sweet mix of “Mimosa/Whisper White,” the Suede is — naturally — crafted mostly from lush suede on the upper. However, there are a number of unique touches that make this pair stand out aside from the Haribo affiliation, with elements such as the PUMA stripe being made from a mixture of metallic silver leather, white rubber, and a transparent gummy material, that come together through the use of white stitching.
The branding leads your eye to the rear, where you’ll find a gummy holographic tab on the heel housing Haribo’s signature gummy bear character/sweet icon. The confectionary brand’s genuine logo of a suited-up gummy bear graces the leather tongue, while PUMA branding on the heel (joined by Haribo’s slogan on the midsole) round out the shoe’s look.
Joining the Suede Triplex is a set of 3 pieces of apparel. Each item arrives in a teal colourway with the iconic Haribo and PUMA co-branded logos featuring on each item. The hoodie features a screen printed design on the back and front while the tee has a large graphic front and centre. Completing the pack is a pair of shorts with co-branding on one leg as well as a wrapper-style logo on the other.
The PUMA x Haribo Collection drops Friday 13 August at our CPT, JHB and online store.
