PUMA Suede Reimagined by même.
même. partners with PUMA in reimagining the iconic PUMA Suede sneaker for kids. Inspired by childhood memories of personalizing and preserving a favorite pair of shoes—the PUMA Suede by même. pattern mixes hand-painted polka dot and stripe panels from its universe, with hand-stitched sashiko stitches around the form strip and tongue tag to create a design that looks like a kid could have made it, all with the intention to inspire all kids who wear them.
For all the kids, and the kid in all of us.
“Growing up with six older siblings, I received a lot of their hand-me-downs. I remember how important it was to me to make something mine and not feel like it came from my brothers’ closets. I used to doodle on the side panels and toe box of shoes to make them feel special. When it came to reinterpreting the PUMA Suede sneaker, we really wanted the shoe to feel like kids created it themselves—so we did everything by hand—every dot, stripe, and stitch was all done by us. Our biggest wish is for kids to see all the possibilities in life and never stop creating—and we hope that when they wear these shoes, they feel like anything is possible.” — Reina Acab
