The PUMA Players’ Loung collection is derived from football’s golden age. It pays homage to the iconic period between the 60s and 70s and its football style. As such, the collection includes a range of apparel, footwear and accessories to match.
Each of these pieces was inspired by PUMA’s heritage during this time while designing a collection for the next generation. This collection evokes a unique era of charisma and taste, both on and off the pitch. The PUMA Players’ Lounge is a celebration of the brand’s history and involvement in the beautiful game.
In terms of footwear, there are four sneakers in the drop. This includes the Slipstream Lo, Suede VTG, RX 737, as well as the Blaze of Glory. The range includes the span of classic silhouettes from football to running and basketball. Each of the sneakers has been re-fitted with new details relating to the theme.
