Puma x Animal Crossing: New Horizons Collab Teased
Puma apparel and shoes in Animal Crossing: New Horizons? Yawn.
Animal Crossing-themed Puma apparel and shoes IRL? Bingo.
It appears another Animal Crossing collaboration project is on the way after Puma took to Twitter Thursday to get the gaming and fashion worlds excited in one fell swoop. For those who are big fans of the life-simulation Nintendo Switch title, or are simply are looking to nab some sweet-looking swag, this collab should be well suited to your tastes.
While the Puma and Animal Crossing: New Horizons teams have yet to give any further details on just what and how vast the new collab's arrangement of offerings will be, Sneaker Freaker has released some photos that reportedly shed some light on what can be expected from the two popular brands.
According to Sneaker Freaker, the collab collection will feature styles for both adults and kids, particularly in the form of three special-edition sneakers from the sportswear manufacturer's Wild Rider, Suede and Future Rider models.
Of the three, Sneaker Freaker has already posted photos of the Animal Crossing-themed Puma Wild Rider, which seems to have gone all out with the game's playful aesthetic.
From the light blue and mint green suede overlays, to the subtle villager patterns on the upper and liner, and official logos of the game on the tongue and insole, this is essentially the ever-popular Animal Crossing Switch in sneaker form.
Additionally, Sneaker Freaker gave the public a first look at a mint green hoodie with a similar villager pattern on the back, however, more details on the apparel front will be coming soon.
Previously, Animal Crossing has partnered with ColorPop in a makeup collab, as well as with BlackMilk for another clothing collection, so it's makes a whole lot of sense that they're keeping the ball rolling with Puma.
