MR DOODLE X PUMA Collection été 2020
The British designer known as Mr Doodle, continues his partnership with the German brand Puma to offer us a collection of sneakers for this summer 2020. After unveiling a collaboration based on the vintage Sky LX Low silhouette (article available HERE), Sam Cox aka Mr Doodle decided to express himself on other Puma shoes with a different look : the Cali Wedge, the RS-2K, the Mile Rider and the Lead Cat 20 sandal.
- The Cali Wedge offers a design inspired by the west coast of the United States.
The shoe features a white leather upper with touches of orange color on the outline of the wide Puma side signature stripe and on the heel, highlighting the Puma logo. On the inside of the stripe are Mr. Doodle’s sport-inspired « doodles » in black ink. To complete the aesthetics of the sneaker, the Puma brand appears under the heel, at the sole level, with its letters transformed into characters typical of the English artist. The white tongue is embellished with black and orange co-branding. The laces, inner lining and platform sole are white. To finalize the design, a small removable soccer character is suspended in the upper lace eyelet.
- The RS-2K embodies the current spirit in the sneaker world :
A design that combines elements from the 2000s with futuristic touches. The shoe has a white mesh upper with white leather overlays, the side stripe is pearl grey and the laceguard is black leather. To add cachet to the pair, the black colour is used to define the tongue, heel tab, heel clip and an original leather arrow that crosses the top of the toe box. To add extra support, an elongated black cord wraps around the foot to the heel. Mr. Doodle’s sporty graphics cover the TPU inserts in the midsole, heel and sides of the shoe. Orange accents can be found on the front of the white laces, inner lining and on the logos of the two associated brands on the heel and tongue label. The whole is based on a high-performance and comfortable white midsole combined with a white, black and orange tricolor rubber outsole.
- The Mile Rider features a sporty yet lifestyle chic design.
This retro-inspired shoe features a white mesh upper with a white leather overlay in the toe area. This insert is embellished with characters from Mr Doodle’s sports world. In addition to the orange accents, which add pep to the pair as on the other collaborative shoes, we find purple accents on the collar, heel, small side sole clip and upper lace eyelets. White stitching on the ankle and black tongue add care to the pair. In terms of branding details, Mr. Doodle appears subtly associated with Puma on the tongue label and is inscribed on the side of the midsole. Puma branding on the white leather side insert and black laces finalize the design. The whole is based on an ultra-comfortable white midsole in Rider foam and an outsole with studs in the same colour.
- The Lead Cat 20 sandal brings a neat and stylish look to a summer shoe.
This must-have for hot days at the water’s edge, is entirely covered with Mr Doodle’s playful and sporty graphics. The sandal has a white, soft and moulded footbed for optimal comfort. The foot support strap is made of orange synthetic leather. In terms of brandings, the brand names appear coupled on the insole and on the middle of the strap. The whole is based on an EVA outsole for long-lasting grip and traction.
To complete this collaboration, a Mr Doodle x PUMA textile collection has also been developed. It consists of men’s and women’s T-shirts, croc tops, sweaters, hoodies, jackets, leggings, trainers pants and accessories such as shopping bags and waist bags. All of these items come in the colours chosen to create the shoes : white, black, orange and purple and are adorned with Mr Doodle’s sporty characters.
The MR DOODLE X PUMA collection will be available on August 14, 2020 at selected retailers and on PUMA.com.
The recommended retail price for Cali Wedge and Mile Rider is 110€. The RS-2K will be available for 120€ and the Lead Cat 20 sandal will cost 60€.
