After announcing its long-running partnership with Manchester City in early 2019 — and signing the club’s manager over the summer — PUMA has now collaborated with the football club on a collection celebrating its 125th anniversary.

All four silhouettes in the capsule mix stories from Manchester City’s history with styles from PUMA’s archive. The first sneaker is the PUMA Blue Star “Kippax,” which takes its name from a well-known and vocal terrace at Manchester City’s old Maine Road stadium.

Elsewhere, the collection sees the PUMA Crack sneaker reworked into two colorways, one that honors Ardwick Association Football Club — an old name for Manchester City — and another celebrating Manchester City’s first ever title win in 2012. Rounding off the pack, the PUMA Bluebird comes in a Haçienda-inspired black and yellow colorway dubbed the “Whitworth,” paying tribute to a world-famous musical period in Manchester.

Take a look at the collaboration’s lookbook in the gallery above. The full collection will launch exclusively via size? stores on October 4.

In other footwear news, PUMA recently linked up with Helly Hansen.
