“When Porsche approached us to design a capsule to celebrate the iconic 911 sports car we were immediately taken by the idea,” Puma Motorsport’s head of marketing Anja Egger said in a statement.

“Our ’70s inspired Future Rider silhouette perfectly captures the historic era of the Air-Cooled Porsche 911 sports car, while the Speedcat is a true race-inspired style capturing the slick lines of the water-cooled generations of 911. We are excited to release this capsule to Porsche and Puma fans alike,” he added.

Each pair will carry a $150 price tag (around P7,200). Again, just 500 pairs per sneaker will be sold. If you plan on getting someone this for Christmas, you’re probably going to act fast.
