PUMA SPEEDCAT OG - A SNEAKERBOX EDITORIAL

Meet the new "it" shoe - PUMA's Speedcat sneaker. Seen on the streets of Paris during Fashion Week and on models such as EmRata, the archival silhouette has reemerged in alignment with the low-profile trend that has taken the sneaker world by storm, while offering a distinctive, sporty coolness.

An icon of racing culture, the PUMA Speedcat has been synonymous with speed, precision, and unparalleled performance for over 25 years. It originated as a fireproof Formula 1® footwear style, but over the decades it found itself on a new circuit – transcending the tracks of Monaco for the streets of global fashion capitals. Wrapped in soft suede and premium leather, this silhouette is reissued in its original red and black colorways with a new PUMA Cat Logo at the front.

SNEAKERBOX celebrates the launch of the Summer 2024 Speedcat OG with a vibrant campaign, capturing the sleek sneaker through a playful and dynamic lens. Shot in Stanley Park, a quintessential Vancouver landmark, the campaign embraces the Speedcat's individuality, showcasing the shoe through various character archetypes. The campaign hones in on the nostalgia of the shoe, merging heritage and modernity in a way that is gracefully powerful. (edited)

ADIDAS Y-3: SPRING / SUMMER 2024 COLLECTION

Continuing adidas and Yohji Yamamoto's renegade exploration of elevated sportswear, Y-3's Spring/Summer 2024 collection focuses on the concept of Contra-Natural - a world in which the duality between the organic and the synthetic produces unexpected beauty. With visceral juxtaposition as its ethos, the collection offers a nod to the delicately poised tension at the heart of the Y-3 brand: adidas' legacy of sporting innovation coming together with Yohji Yamamoto's elegant, avant garde, aesthetic philosophy.

From concept to execution, the idealogical collision of the natural and the artificial manifests in a bold, collection-wide, color palette. The brand's signature pantones are all present - Y-3 Black, Solid Gray, and White - but this season they're complimented with Clay Brown, Mesa, Shadow Red, and Mint. Staying true to the collection's thematic impetus, the quartet of new colors takes inspration from the process of oxidation, with nature taking over metal, turning rusty burgundy into an acidic mint.

Release Info: Y-3's Spring/Summer 2024 Collection is now available Online and In-Store at SNEAKERBOX Metrotown.

Price: $115 - $780 CAD
