Just in time for the show’s ninth season finale, Puma will be releasing sneakers directly inspired by The Walking Dead on Mar. 25.
AMC’s The Walking Dead is due to drop its ninth season finale within the next couple weeks. If the wait is killing you, fear not. In the meantime, Puma has a plan to release a line of sneakers that are directly inspired by everyone’s favorite zombie series. The shoes will be the latest in Puma’s POP series and another GV Special. Only, this time, a post-apocalyptic vibe has been added to this new version of the sneakers.
The shoes have been designed by Alexander-John, a frequent Puma collaborator who is perhaps best known for his designs in conjunction with Foot Locker. Speaking of, the shoes will be dropping on Footlocker.com.
Back to Alexander-John, he would comment on how he got the gig in an official press release. He would say the following: “When I got the call about the project I knew the storyline of the Whisperers was going to play a very important role in how I brought this shoe to life. I love the simplicity of the concept and how the Whisperers hide in plain sight.”
This collaboration also happens to be a limited edition collab so act now and buy a pair while you still can.
The ninth season finale of The Walking Dead airs on AMC on Mar. 31, but be sure to get this latest Puma collaboration based on the series a whole week in advance. The shoes drop on Monday, Mar. 25. The shows will be available on Foot Locker’s official website. At a price of $200, these shoes will also be available at select Puma lab locations across the world, as well as at the Foot Locker POP Shop in Time Square.
