Puma Brings Back the Classic Palermo OG
This 80s terrace legend pays homage to Sicily, Italy
If you’ve been following (and liking) Dua Lipa on the grid as early as May of this year, you might’ve seen her sport a unique blue shoe from Puma. Peppered in between effortlessly but curated Instagram dumps is the signature blue-and-white colorway of the 80s terrace favorite—the Puma Classic Palermo OG. After some time, the shoe will now be made available to the public.
Shop the original blue-and-white color combination with its retro T-toe construction, classic gum sole and the signature PUMA tag, evoking a deep sense of football nostalgia. As an ode to its Sicilian namesake, the upcoming release will also include two new colorways that take inspiration from Palermo’s iconic fruit vendors, locally called fruttivendolo.
Starting July 18, shop the PUMA Palermo OG at the newly opened PUMA store found at the L2 Main Wing of Shangri-La Plaza and via the official website.
We’ve still got a long way to go with July, so return to this month’s Wonder Wardrobe for more updates on what’s buzzing in fashion and retail.
