The tread pattern is taken from Pirelli’s F1 Cinturato tire. The upper has a mix of microfiber suede on the vamp, lateral mesh panels, and exposed stitching.
Release Date: April 26, with a wider release on May 15
Buy: PUMA and select retailers
Editor’s Notes: PUMA has tapped its motorsport heritage through this partnership with tire manufacturer Pirelli. The two brands have worked together on the Replicat X, a sneaker whose sole tread is taken from the Pirelli Cinturato tire used in Formula One.
The shoe has a low profile with a wraparound rubber outsole that gives it a distinctive, racing-inspired look. Hits of green and blue on an otherwise predominantly white design give it a sleek look.
Look for the Replicat X to drop at select stores on April 26, before hitting PUMA online on May 15. More colorways are expected to follow.
