PUMA’s OG Speedcats Are Making a Comeback


Update: In gearing up for the OG Speedcat release, PUMA has now released the official campaign for the upcoming launch. Stylist and creator Sierra Renna serves as the muse and face for this campaign, exuding fierce, fearless and expressive energy that encapsulates the sneaker.

On June 19, the PUMA OG Speedcat sneaker will also be available for an exclusive pre-release at online and at the physical  NAKED Copenhagen store in Le Marais, Paris. From June 29, the shoe will be widely available through PUMA and its global retailers.

Original: If it isn’t a completely new shoe, it’s an old one. But sometimes bringing back shoes from the past is exactly what gets people excited – evoking fond memories from previous wearers and bringing on new inspirations for younger generations who maybe never had the originals. So in the vein of nostalgia, PUMA is bringing back its OG Speedcat silhouette.

The shoe from the German sportswear brand first took over in the early 2000s. Although it was crafted as a high-performance racing shoe due to its low-profile rubber sole, the model quickly became a street favorite – donning a range of colors over the years. The shoe boasts a suede upper monochromatic that only sees contrasting shades with the curved PUMA decal and good foil PUMA name and animal logo. The sleekly aerodynamic shoe has a rounded toe that is finished off with the PUMA animal logo.

To mark the comeback, PUMA is tossing up the OG Speedcat in red and black suede colorways – two easy and versatile colorways that are sure to strike the crowd, especially given the current love for low-profile sneakers.

Take a closer look in the gallery above. PUMA’s Speedcats are set to be released online at PUMA on June 29.
