Over the past year, we’ve seen PUMA partner with some leading brands and corporations around the globe. Many of these partnerships released some of the best-looking collaborations in the sneaker community. These included collections such as the PUMA X Pokemon, PUMA X Coca-Cola and PUMA X Batman. For its latest release, PUMA has partnered with Mattel to launch the PUMA X Masters of the Universe: Revelation collection.

Masters of the Universe: Revelation was released on Netflix in 2021 to mixed reviews. However, the series still has its place among fans with some great artwork and voice acting, along with Mark Hamill once again reprising his voice role for Skeletor.
In addition to the new show, the collection also commemorates the 40th anniversary of the iconic cartoon series, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. The collection is bold, bright and brings all the nostalgia of one of TV’s favourite shows.

The PUMA X Masters of the Universe RS-X
With the collaboration with Mattel, PUMA brings a fresh twist to its RS-X range. The RS-X range recently saw its own refresh a few weeks ago, with the new PUMA X Masters of the Universe collection adding three new colourways to the mix.
The colourways include three of the most well-known characters from the series. This includes He-Man, Skeletor and Battle Cat-themed colourways.
Each of the styles features unique 3D textures and bold colours for their respective characters along with text and graphical elements throughout. The text on the sneakers pays homage to its characters, including He-Man’s battle cry, “I have the power!”, and Skeletor’s cynical laugh, “Myaahahaha!
Further to this, the tongues all include icons for the specific character, along with themed laces and specialised insoles.
In terms of the build and materials, each of the sneakers features rubber midsoles and outsoles, suede overlays on the toe cap and heel, TPU mould on the heel counter and microfibre eyestays.
