Shopping Nation: PUMA Teams Up with Beloved Manga ONE PIECE to Release PUMA CELL ENDURA Thousand Sunny
In the first edition of the three piece collaboration with the highly popular ONE PIECE animation, PUMA is releasing ONE PIECE X PUMA CELL ENDURA. Inspired by the ONE PIECE pirate ship Thousand Sunny captained by Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates – an important part of the ONE PIECE universe – the sneaker drop will coincide with the “ONE PIECE : Stampede” movie premiere in Japan.
Channelling various ONE PIECE motifs, the sock-style upper carries the pattern of “The GumGum Fruit” and the brown midsole, breathable mesh sidewalls, a black and red leather overlay as well as brown lacing imitating the deck, sails and ropes of the Thousand Sunny pirate ship. A green insole with ONE PIECE and PUMA co-branding reproduces the grass on the deck of the ship. As a finishing touch, a golden anchor attached to the heel completes the theme.
PUMA’s CELL ENDURA was first announced in the 90s around the same time as the birth of the ONE PIECE manga series. The CELL ENDURA originally attracted attention for its novel design and cutting-edge technology – a perfect fit for the collaboration concept “Return to Origins”. Boasting excellent durability and cushioning, the CELL ENDURA has been steadily gaining popularity since its 20-year reintroduction this year.
The ONE PIECE X PUMA CELL ENDURA Thousand Sunny collaboration will be available in Singapore from 12th September onwards at SGD$239, available at PUMA ION Orchard, Jewel Changi Airport, PUMA SELECT at MBS as well as Limited Edition stores islandwide.
