Sports clothing manufacturer meets vehicle tyre company
It may seem an unlikely pairing at first, but Puma and Pirelli do have a lot in common. Both companies make sports apparel – Puma’s is worn by humans, Pirelli’s by cars. And in either case, performance and grip are a prime concern, with a particular focus on what happens when their own product meets the tarmac.
So the fact that the two companies should team up to create a shoe inspired by motorsport actually makes sense – take a look at the Replicat X sneaker to see why.
Described as a completely fresh silhouette, the shoe’s upper features perforated Microfibre-suede on the vamp, with lateral mesh panels for breathability. Also look for the oversized full rubber outsole, with moulded sock liners, and Pirelli’s Cinturato Blue tyre tread pattern, used at the top level of racing, on the sole – providing unrivalled grip, even in the wet.
