I absolutely love shops designed in Japan like Puma House Tokyo by Japanese design studio Nendo. There are three dimensional staircases throughout the themed store that combines a press room and event space into one open area. The multipurpose area can also be used for exhibitions, fittings, media events and product launches. Absolutely beautiful.
The collaborative “Stripe Off” variation of the Clyde from UNDFTD and PUMA is starting to makes its way to select retailers on April 10th for $110.

The CHALK ping-pong table ($3900), designed by aruliden for PUMA, redefines the ping-pong table for the after hours athlete. Made by hand, the chalk table incorporates ash wood legs and a ceramic chalk surface – bringing a whole new spin to the game. Now available at The Conran Shop.
GBH has built a Ferrari Grand Prix car out of designer gear – with the help of 1,500 T-shirts and 88 pairs of jeans. The full size replica of the Formula One car Kimi Raikkonen is driving this season has gone on show in at the Puma store in London’s Carnaby Street. It took a team five hours to turn the T-shirts and jeans – together with 20 belts, 26 pairs of shoes and baseball caps – into a model of the 200mph racer.
Five models and three colorways comprise the Puma Winner Pack, coming to retailers in March. Each pair will run you about $75 and you’ll be able to choose from slip-ons to runners in your choice of metallic gold, black or white.
The Van Slobbe Tennis ($352) is the ultimate marriage of classicist forms and Puma’s edgy funk. Designed by Dutch designer Alexander Van Slobbe, each shoe includes a creative logo design over the leather upper, a velcro strap with laces to keep them on tight, and rubber soles to help you stay planted to the floor.
Puma has been doing a fantastic job expanding their line into the luxury lifestyle market. Their latest creation is the Puma Urban Mobility Bag launched exclusively last month at Selfridges. The bag will be available worldwide in July, and from the looks of it, they’re going to sell out fast.
Production has been limited to 600 bags. Each white Nappa leather bag will feature a silver metal plaque engraved with â€˜Urban Mobility ltd. editionâ€™ and its own Ltd edition number. The cherry wood base panel offers shape and protection to the bag. Two leather pouches in differing sizes are included with the bag for convenience as well as an aluminum case for travel. Retail for this bag will be 650 Euros.
Make a statement on the street with the Puma Roma – a vintage 1960′s trainer reproduced as a one-to-one copy of the original. Soft pigskin suede or leather upper surrounds feet with plush comfort. EVA midsole offers lightweight, durable cushioning. Gum rubber outsole provides great traction.
The Puma Men’s Roma Shoe is simple and classy. A great everyday shoe that’s good looking and easy on the feet. Puma has a great selection of colors to assure you’ll find a pair that matches your personality and wardrobe.
Michelle Yeoh is the first actress in a series of Puma Holiday Heroes commercials that will be released this holiday season.

There’s no doubt that Puma comes out with some sick designs, but every once in awhile we find that almost perfect shoe except the colors or accents are just a tad off. That’s where the bright minds at Puma have come up with the Puma Mongolian Shoe BBQ, where you can design your very own Pumas! I just loaded this thing up, and the interface rocks. For only $130, you can modify over 20 components of the popular Puma RS100 using different fabrics, materials and colors. What are you waiting for? Go and build your dream shoe!
