The initiative aims to increase consciousness about how we dress and what we purchase. As a result, pieces throughout “A Hopeful Future” are made with recycled rubber and polyester, organic cotton, and chrome-free leather, making for a more sustainable approach to sneaker and garment production.
In the collection, you can find two pairs of sneakers — one black-and-white PUMA Clyde complete with The Hundreds’ branding on the tongue and on the insole, and another pair of brightly-colored sneakers from PUMA’s RS-line. Although the materials used are sustainable, this by no means makes the sneakers less premium — the Clyde serves up smooth suede alongside finely ribbed detailing on the mid-panel stripe, while the RS model combines ripstop with leather and mesh throughout its upper.
The RS sneaker features a number of bold design elements, such as the tartan-esque colors used on the ripstop to the fluorescent orange that appears on the heel tab, heel branding, and midsole. Elsewhere in the collection, the duo presents a light khaki sportswear-indebted two-piece, a range of graphic T-shirts combining both of the collaborators’ signature logos, and bags.
Rounding out the collection is a standout blue-and-yellow striped rugby shirt, and a matching baseball cap. Check out The Hundreds x PUMA “A Hopeful Future” lookbook above, and expect the collection to release on September 26 on PUMA’s website, at PUMA Stores, on ASOS, and at selected retailers.
