Puma hosted the first-ever The PUMA KiDS Lab this past MondayThis event allowed kids the chance to design their own sneakers. The event was held at Hollywood mommy and celebrity hotspot Au Fudge. The room was filled with around 30 kids ages five to fifteen years old, all creating their own versions of  the classic Puma Basket and the Basket Heart.

Also in attendance was Puma designer Neli Ernst along with two renowned street artists, Jasper Wong and Yoskay Yamamoto. All three had the chance to mentor the kids in the event which was organized in collaboration with Amy Wong of Big Bad Wolf.

After being introduced to the world of sneaker design, the kids got inspired with mood boards and the proceeded to created their very own sneaker designs. The PUMA KiDS Lab was filled with a very diverse group of kids from the SoCal area, including Hollywood actors, Lonnie Chavis of This Is Us, Ian Chen of Fresh Off the Boat and Aubrey Anderson-Emmons of Modern Family and mini-style icon, Zooey In the City.

PUMA will be shortlisting a handful of the kid’s designs to be produced as exclusive one-off sneakers. There’s also a rumor floating around Puma’s HQ that one of those sneaker may even be chosen to be sold at retail stores, making it one of the most limited kids sneaker drops ever.
