A few weeks ago, PUMA dropped a very limited-edition Ferrari Speedcat Pro, which gave fans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get their hands on real F1 sneakers as worn by the racers during Grand Prix weekends. Following the success of the drop, PUMA has extended the F1 range with the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Speedcat Pro GT.
The sneakers are the variant of a boot that F1 driver, Max Max Verstappen uses to put the hammer down.
The boot is another super limited offering, with it being the first-ever shoppable edition featuring exactly the same technology, fabrics and colours for the Red Bull F1 team.
PUMA has been the official clothing partner for the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Formula One team since 2016. The partnership forms part of the brand’s push to deliver innovation and technology towards racing gear across the various teams it provides gear to. This includes race boots, driver suits, balaclavas and even underwear and more.
The Speedcat Pro GT features a blended mix of super-light fabrics and materials to keep the overall weight of the driver to a minimum. This also includes fireproofing of all the gear.
The sneakers worn by Max Verstappen feature an all-over orange colourway with state of the art materials. The upper and inner lining is made of lightweight fabrics, which also provide comfort and protection. The heel support is crafted from real carbon fibre.
The low-profile design of the Speedcat Pro GT has a rubber outsole and the EVA wedge to provide absolute control of the pedals with the right amount of comfort.
The Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Speedcat Pro GT of Max Verstappen will be released in limited quantities, with only 33 pairs being made available globally. This is the ultimate collector’s item for F1 fans.
The Red lights are off and its go-time with the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Speedcat Pro GT of Max Verstappen, available online at eu.puma.com.
