PUMA is heating things up to kick off the Summer as they continue to release sneakers left and right that appeal to different types of sneakerheads. For example in the month of June they gave us a collaboration for kids (or the kid inside of you if you’re a fan of Despicable Me), something patriotic to celebrate tomorrow’s Independence Day holiday, and a wavy collaboration with Pink Dolphin. We were fortunate enough to be given these three different releases and we wanted to share them all with you today.

First we have the PUMA x Minions Collection that includes sneakers, apparel, and accessories for the entire family. PUMA decided to hook us up with the PUMA Disc Blaze Minions which comes in all-white with Minions graphics being placed on the inner liner and the paneling that runs down the tongue. They also included the yellow Minions crewneck sweater and the black bomber jacket to make sure we have something to match the kicks. Now the real question is, should I wear all three things to watch Despicable Me 3 this weekend? I think the kicks and the bomber jacket combination will be money!

Independence Day is probably the biggest (sneakerhead) holiday of the year as we see people that we follow on the Gram and Twitter post their patriotic sneakers pictures. PUMA is known for joining in the 4th of July festivities and this year was no different as they released the PUMA Clyde 4th of July Pack, among others. This patriotic Clyde comes with a supple white leather dominating the upper and an embossed, stitched red, white, and blue PUMA formstripe that provides a nice pop. American flag-inspired branding has been added on the tongue and insoles, along with Metallic Silver detailing on the heel and Clyde callout on the side panels. And let’s not forget about the dope laces: one in solid white with red-stripe tips and an all-over print blue star pair.

What was perhaps the biggest release for PUMA last month was their third capsule collaboration with Pink Dolphin. The collection includes two tonal colorways of the Suede V2 along with apparel and a couple of accessories. The quality of the suede material on The Suede (no pun intended) is some of the best I’ve personally ever seen on a shoe and that icy rubber outsole with the Pink Dolphin wave print is a real nice touch. We were also given the Wave Cat short sleeve hoodie which is perfect for those cool Southern California nights.

Huge thank you to PUMA for heating up our mailbox and starting off our Summer on the right note. You can purchase any and everything shown above directly from puma.com as well as select Puma retailers now.
