PUMA has had a long-standing partnership with all things motorsport. In addition, they’ve also been a partner with Ferrari for many years, having recently partnered with the sportscar manufacturer for two drops. This includes the Scuderia Ferrari Speedcat Pro and the PUMA X Scuderia Ferrari collections. Now, the duo has partnered yet again for a one-of-a-kind collaboration, the Ferrari ION F Sneakers by PUMA.
The sneaker is part of Ferrari’s fashion-led collection, drawing inspiration from the factories constructing the iconic Italian sportscars. It based on the Ferrari SF90 Stradale hypercar. As a result, it gives the sneaker an elevated and thoughtful design.
Ferrari has been known to evolve their legacy of sportscars from the very beginning. Crafting beautiful pieces of art and generating pure power on the streets. Inspired by the aerodynamics and the engine boost, the Ferrari ION F sneaker embraces the aesthetic of the SF90. Translating this directly into footwear, as well as the most iconic of symbols, the Prancing Horse, the ION F silhouette is brought to life.

The sneaker features a mix of premium materials. Elements include rich mesh on the upper, with knitted sock construction. It provides both a clean aesthetic and comfort to match. The shape of the TPU panel on the rear, which is wrapped by a PU Foam, is reminiscent of the front spoiler of the SF90.
In addition to this, the Ferrari ION F includes a magnetic fit-lock. This buckles up your feet for the extreme g-force-driven serpentine road.
The sneakers form part of the manufacturer’s fashion collection. Its latest range was inspired by the connection of the curves from each Ferrari and that of human anatomy. This highlights the link between clothing, cars and the human body.
The Ferrari ION F Sneakers by PUMA is a fusion of cars, anatomy and design. It is available at X-Trend stores and retails for R3,999.
