UPDATE: The drop date is amongst us freakers, the Puma Suede ‘Sapphire’ release is mere hours away and counting. Look to nab yourself a pair in the coming hours via retailers including SNS.

In case you didn’t already get the memo, Puma are celebrating the 45th anniversary of perhaps their most iconic silhouette, the Puma Suede. To commemorate the milestone, Puma have been going hard in the paint by throwing parties and dropping some killer releases including this ‘Sapphire’ suede ‘Made in Japan’ beauty. The colour is a call-out to the debut Suede scheme as well as the anniversary precious stone, and features some celebratory branding atop premium textiles. Elvis would dig these shoes… just sayin’. The Puma Suede ‘Sapphire’ edition will be available worldwide at select stockists from November 8th, only 450 pairs have been produced so don’t sleep!
