Puma Debuts New Sneakers Inspired by M.A.C.’s Most Popular Lipstick Shades
For Puma’s newest line of sneakers, the brand found inspiration not among your favorite singers, Kardashian-Jenners, or cartoon characters, but in one of the most iconic makeup brands of the last few decades. The activewear company announced on Tuesday that, in honor of the 50th anniversary of its classic Suede sneaker, they’ve teamed up with M.A.C. Cosmetics to create three new color options for the shoe, each inspired by one of M.A.C.’s vibrant lip colors.
According to a press release, the Crème d’Nude sneaker is a “posh peachy blush” color with coral laces and a rose-gold #PUMAxMAC logo sticker and matching rose-gold outsole, while the Lady Danger edition has a bright, red-orange suede upper with matching laces and texturized outsole. The Sin iteration of the shoe, like its cosmetic namesake, comes in a “daring burgundy” shade, which contrasts with the “satin effect” of the matching sole’s luster. The special-edition shoes, which come in matching “premium shoeboxes” and drop May 17, will be available only to U.S. customers, via the Puma website and major shoe stores.
Puma is just the latest all-star to team up with M.A.C. Who could forget Taraji P. Henson’s Viva Glam collections with the brand? The first one was such a knock-out that Henson came back to do another, just months later. The cosmetics giant also recently collaborated with YouTuber Patrick Starrr, Padma Lakshmi, and Jade Jagger. Essentially, there’s now a M.A.C. makeup collection for everyone.
