PUMA has a rich history in motorsport, with many previous collaborations, with the most recent being that of the updated Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team gear and its partnership with EA for the NFS collaboration. The brand has extended its range of motorsport products with an all-new sneaker solely for women, the PUMA Speedcat Mid Sparco.
The brand is leading the way in pushing equality, the latest drop debuts for women for a mid variant of the Speedcat silhouette. PUMA believes in equality, both on and off the track, pushing for more women in racing. This is the motivation why PUMA is committed to supporting and promoting women in motorsport with the “W-Series” campaign.
The brand has been the official race gear supplier since 2019. This women-only racing championship has made a statement on the tarmac to showcase some of the world’s best women drivers putting pedal to the metal.
The Speedcat Mid Sparco silhouette offers this legacy of women in motorsport to the consumer. The sneaker features a cool and stylish design. The shoe builds the bridge between track and the street with a lifestyle version of the performance-orientated race boot, allowing women to conquer in style.
The sneaker is based of its 90s Speedcat heritage, with PUMA drawing inspiration from its archives. The Speedcat Mid Sparco is ready to inspire a new generation of female F1 enthusiasts both young and old, with its mix of motorsports and streetwear styles. The mid-cut of the sneaker embraces the worlds of speed and style, while the upper features an established suede material.
The PUMA Speedcat Mid Sparco is currently available in three colourways, PUMA Black, Whisper White and PUMA Team Gold, retailing for R2,299.
The sneaker will be available in stores across the country as well as online at PUMA.com.
