After the collection created in collaboration with Rick and Morty, Puma chooses the beloved Nickelodeon and Paramount series for a new SpongeBob SquarePants collection with footwear and clothing for both adults and kids, of which the two main characters SpongeBob and Patrick, engaged in their jellyfish fishing adventure, are the absolute protagonists.
The SpongeBob SquarePants x Puma capsule includes a series of items with a playful and light mood, with floral prints and sunny and summery colours. Among the highlights of the collection we find some revisited and themed classic items of the sportswear brand. In fact, the most famous shades and characters from the cartoon decorate various sneaker models. In addition, each shoe comes with a character tag that doubles as a keychain. The low-top shape of the Puma Suede refers to the SpongeBob silhouette, with rounded toes and a paneled upper made with yellow shearling with a furry texture and spotted patterns, which mimic the textures of the sponge. A round SpongeBob charm and flat brown rubber soles complete the pair.
Even the Slipstream and Future Rider models are inspired by SpongeBob’s characteristics. The former features paneled uppers in the same bright yellow hue as the Suedes, with the addition of some white details. The sole is made of crinkled rubber, with a brown and white retro style. The second, the unmistakable Future Rider model with its linear white sole, also features bright yellow tones and the SpongeBob keychain accessory.
Instead, SpongeBob’s best friend, Patrick Star, inspired the design of the Rider FV. You can tell by the soft pink suede upper and vibrant neon green trims. A Patrick character tag and angled outsole decorated with splashes of pink complete the sneaker with a playful twist.
Rounding out the footwear array is the lace-up R-Slide inspired by the vibrant purple, teal and yellow hues of Bikini Bottom City with SpongeBob’s face on the tongue tag.
We then move on to collection’s apparel, which provides a wide range of kids’ and adults’ items including several sports-style ensembles, including the embroidered T7 tracksuit, graphic tees, polo shirts and shorts.
The SpongeBob SquarePants x Puma series, which will range in price from $20 to $100 USD, will be available on the Puma website and in select retail stores starting from March 17.
