Before you start wondering where you can buy them, sorry to burst your bubble but they’re all sold out. When it was released in the US yesterday through Porsche Design and Puma’s website, buyers only had 2.7 seconds to buy them!
Not sure how that worked out but Porsche said it’s inspired by the 0 to 100 km/h time of the new Porsche 911 Turbo; which was silly, to be honest. Nonetheless, Puma and Porsche enthusiasts clearly weren’t fazed.
At USD 150 each, all 500 pairs from the Puma x Porsche collaboration, were sold out within hours. There’s only a couple left on the Puma website but for good reason; you’d need to chop half your feet off to fit into them.
The eight different designs in the Puma x Porsche collection were inspired by eight different generations of the Porsche 911 Turbo. There were also two different types of sneakers to represent the different eras of the 911s as well.
The retro-looking Future Rider represents the first four generations of air-cooled 911 Turbos which include the 930 3.0-litre and 3.3-litre, the 964 and 993. On the other hand, the more recent Turbo models from the 996, 997, 991, and 992 generations were featured through the motorsport-styled Speedcat design.
