Designer shoes have a solid foundation that cannot be matched, backed as they are by billion-dollar athletic names and luxury brands. Not to mention how initially-one-off sneaker collaborations grow to become highly sought-after brands. Which is why most of us love buying sneakers from well-known brands! If you’re looking to expand your sneaker collection, you’ve come to the right spot. We’ve got all the deets on two well-known brands that have just debuted their most recent kicks!
The PUMA ‘SLIPSTREAM’ was released in 1987 as a sneaker for basketball players aiming for excellence. This year, SLIPSTREAM was re-released as a new product with added street sensibilities while retaining its 80s design heritage. It features a clean silhouette, bold midsole design, and updated overlay, which adds a modern feel.
The star of the campaign, the PUMA Slipstream in Puma White-Puma Black, is seen on NCT 127 members for the PUMA Slipstream campaign. As part of the exciting launch, PUMA is gifting consumers an exclusive PUMA x NCT 127 photocard set* with every purchase of the Slipstream.
The ‘SLIPSTREAM’ campaign, presented by PUMA and NCT 127, is composed of styles and themes that represent the retro vibes of the 80s. It goes for a vintage street concept, reproducing the graffiti, basketball, old cars, and street shops that recall the moods of that time, with the members of NCT 127 showing off their unique characteristics.
NCT 127 was selected as PUMA’s APAC (Asia Pacific) ambassador recently, and has been participating in ambassadorial activities since the release of the ‘SLIPSTREAM’ campaign. Through the behind-the-scenes looks, fans can enjoy the various styles of NCT 127 members wearing sporty items such as the brand’s iconic T7 tracksuits, sweatshirts, and the PUMA Slipstream in Puma White-Puma Black. NCT 127, who are known to be sports enthusiasts, are displayed with bikes, basketballs, and other items that perfectly match the filming’s concept of activity, further elevating the campaign.
