Two certified pop culture icons are colliding in a kicks collection. There's a Hello Kitty x Puma sneaker collab on the horizon. The shoes are the cat's meow and not just because both brands are inspired by felines. The collection includes clothes and other accessories that are pretty freaking charming, too.
Hello Kitty has been a cute and devilishly mysterious character who has inspired our curiosity and adorned things like notebooks, T-shirts, and cell phone cases for over 40 years. Puma's Suede sneakers have been fashionably adorning feet since 1968.
It makes sense that these fashion titans have finally teamed up for a collab that is cuter than all and celebrates the shoe's 50 anniversary. The HK x Puma range combines the most beloved and signature elements of both iconic and instantly recognizable brands.
The Hello Kitty x Puma collection will cruise into Puma Stores, puma.com, sanrio.com, and select Sanrio stores as of Feb. 8. Puma's signature suede sneaker is getting quite a HK makeover, featuring graphics like the red bow and her ever-present milk bottle. The line is all about those cheeky details. It's also red hot — quite literally!
The PUMA x Hello Kitty Suede Classic toebox, tongue, laces, heel, and Formstripe is crimson. It features a Hello Kitty pattern and a chunky, white sole. This crimson collection arrives just in time for Valentine's Day.
The shoes come in adult, junior, pre-school, and infant sizes. So the whole family can wear 'em. The aesthetics of both brands remain strong and seamlessly incorporated. It's as though HK and her milk bottle were born to be paired with the signature Puma stripe.
The HK x Puma collection isn't just about kicks, even though those comprise the core element of the collection. Apparel and accessories are involved, too. A white Hello Kitty x Puma tee features the collab logo.
There is also a red hoodie boasting the logos and racing stripes. The red pants feature Puma's signature stripes, along with a small Hello Kitty icon on the front right leg and the familiar milk bottle icon on the back of the left hip. Also included are a red and white backpack and a gym sack that you can tote everywhere.
All the apparel is peak adorable, spiked with a cool AF streetwear vibe. The Twitterverse is already jonesing for this collab.
This user addresses a key point. There have been plenty of ace Hello Kitty partnerships lately, from the Peter Thomas Roth skincare collection to the ASOS capsule collection to the Fragrant Jewels bath bombs.
Some cats are nocturnal. Therefore, it's not surprising that this collection is generating such excitement among fans that it's keeping some of them awake at night.
No, Hello Kitty x Puma isn't going to kill this user. It's going to give life to her closet and her feet.
This collection will suck you into its vortex of cuteness. Streetwear boutique Six:02 is another shopping destination.
The devil really is in the details with this mashup. The translucent pink bill on the cap is a dope touch.
Hello Kitty x Puma will be here before you know it — and it's going to give your wardrobe a red hot upgrade.
