Tomas Maier and Puma Team Up On a Super-Collectible Shoe

Watch out, Rihanna: Tomas Maier is the latest designer to collaborate with the sneaker giant

Designer Tomas Maier[1] has teamed up with Puma[2] for a special reissue of the sneaker company’s classic Roma 1968 shoe, of which only 200 have been produced. While the shoes are minimal in both design and color, a debossed design of Maier’s signature palm tree adds flair to these collectible kicks. “This shoe collaboration reflects a period of design I enjoy as well as a modern, minimalistic approach that I always try to bring to the products in our brand,” says Maier. The unisex style, which launched on Monday, is classic with a modern twist. So how did the high-end designer and casual sneaker empire become a perfect fit? “Puma is very dynamic about doing collaborations and as we share a parent company, the meeting was fairly organic,” he explains. “They also appreciate the casualness of our company and what we stand for.”

Tomas Maier x Puma Sneaker, $150, is available now at Tomas Maier stores [3]nationwide and TomasMaier.com[4] (where you can purchase and ship globally).
