PUMA have displayed pop culture prowess for a number of years now, reaching a new geek peak in 2021 with the sell-out Animal Crossing collaboration. They're continuing to build their collection of ,video game-inspired sneakers by releasing a new colab with the immensely popular Minecraft title. Regarded as the best-selling video game of all time, this partnership could be a massive boon for the Big Cat as they look to remake the classic Suede.

Like the in-game world, these PUMAs start off on a basic foundation. Here, the fundamental building blocks of the Minecraft experience – dirt, grass and water – form the colourway, which is rendered in the model’s namesake suede material. To emphasise the charming pixelated aesthetic of the game, these Suedes also have randomised checkered printing along the sides and lining, creating an embossed texture.

Other custom features of this colab include a ‘Creeper’ face graphic on the tongue labels instead of the usual Big Cat, and this is also found on a small flap near the top of the lateral eyestays. The Formstripe is shifted on the lateral to depict a blue ‘water’ underlay, while the medial is inverted to show ‘grass’.

The Minecraft x PUMA Suede will release on February 5 alongside co-branded apparel.
