It’s shaping up to be a big year for PUMA in the sneaker scene as it continues to iterate upon its staples while also embracing its partnerships. While key moments have included reconnecting with the likes of Rihanna and Hajime Sorayama, the German Sportswear brand has also looked to emerging labels to revitalize its offerings, with South Korea’s SAN SAN GEAR as the latest to join PUMA’s movement.
Connecting on the PUMA Mostro, the duo has prepared the recently-revived silhouette in three colorways that were unveiled at SAN SAN GEAR’s Paris showroom for Fall/Winter 2024. While the Mostro has been around for decades, its design remains as modern as ever. However, all three pairs from this collaboration favor a retro flair by offering all-suede uppers. SAN SAN GEAR branding appears at the shoe’s lateral, positioned next to the silhouette’s signature strap system. As for the color arrangements, all three utilize various grays at the Formstrip and spike-covered outsole while black, gray and pink uppers are featured across the shoes respectively.
At the time of writing, neither SAN SAN GEAR nor PUMA have shared any release details regarding their three colorways of the Mostro silhouette. Stay tuned for updates as, based on its inclusion in SAN SAN GEAR’s Fall/Winter 2024 showcase, it’s likely to arrive much later in the year, possibly as an exclusive regional release.
