A World of Collaboration
Following the release of last year’s Dragon Ball Z x Adidas collection and the alleged leakage of an aborted Naruto x Adidas lineup later this year. Looks like PUMA wants a piece of the manga pie! It is confirmed that the German giant is teaming with One Piece for total collaboration. First published in series in July 1997, One Piece has sold more than 450 million copies worldwide, making it the best-selling manga series in history. The PUMA collection has been released since the release of “One Piece Stampede”, a film that will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the anime.
The Thousand Sunny
The leather sneakers are interspersed with a mesh textile designed to represent the sail of Thousand Sunny’s ship Straw Hat Pirates. Laces resembling ropes evoke the mast of the ship when they go up the custom eyelets located above the sole. In addition, the stylized silhouette in the shape of a lion is engraved towards the heel. Finally, the red / black color is reminiscent of the flag of pirates floating above the ship.
Other details include a rubber boot pattern inspired by the Rubber-Rubber Fruit eaten by Luffy at the start of the series. A removable anchor key ring is also attached to the heel. Finally, a co-branded insole and a box full of characters complete the feature-rich design.
