PUMA has delved into its brand archives to pay homage to a sneaker originally created to celebrate the 1952 Winter Olympics in Norway.
Following its recent “Unity Collection” that celebrated the power of sport, PUMA has turned its attention to the 1950s with the Oslo-City. A sneaker that originally took on a bowling shoe-like design has taken on several iterations since its birth almost 70 years ago, yet it’s the 1968 version that’s remained.
This Olso-City rendition features a soft white leather upper with smooth suede overlays at the toe and black suede branding for a contrasting look. The sneaker’s name is found in gold on the side, and completed in classic PUMA style with a supportive gum rubber outsole. New design elements include a modernized fit and added comfort in the footbed, yet the rest remains true to its original design.
The PUMA Oslo-City is available via the size? website and in size? stores now, priced at £90.
