In the ’90s, PUMA supplied Formula 1 pilots with a fireproof version of the Speedcat. These were worn by the likes of Ferrari Scuderia’s drivers and, because of its sleek low profile design, the shoe soon turned into a fashion statement. By the early 2000s, PUMA had a whole range of lifestyle sneakers indebted to sports, which has lead to a partnership with Ferrari that has recently delivered the SF Cell Alien and Cell Venom.
Now, the duo are back together for two Speedcats. Served in “Rosso Corsa/PUMA White” and “PUMA Black/PUMA White,” the Speedcat is made from smooth suede and is intersected by a stitched leather PUMA stripe on the mid-panel, cutting through to give the shoe a streamlined racing aesthetic.
Gold PUMA branding hits the mid-panel, while the cat logo graces the toe and Ferrari’s shield appears on the lateral rear-quarter. More cat embroidery appears on the tongue and heel, while a low profile black outsole with tread inspired by car tires rounds out both pairs.
Take a look at the Ferrari x PUMA Speedcat above, and pick up both pairs now from retailers such as Sivasdescalzo for €110 EUR each (approx. $133 USD).
