For over 40 years, fans have been smitten by Hello Kitty. She may only be as tall as five apples and weighs the same as three, but her influence spans the world over, gracing all things ‘kawaii’ since she first debuted in Japan in 1974. The PUMA Suede born in 1968 has long established its iconic status with roots in sport and relevance in the sneaker world. Both Hello Kitty and the PUMA Suede are certified pop cultural icons.
The two have come together to release an upcoming collaborative project using the PUMA Suede. The offering features a Red suede upper highlighted with a Hello Kitty motif on the quarter panels. A thick White midsole and clear outsole with an image of the character’s iconic bow accessory completes the design.
