Stampd Athletics by Puma drop first sneaker

June 09, 2015 BY LUKE ALLARD

A new collaboration has popped up this season, between innovative athletic brand Puma, and global streetwear brand Stampd. The new collaboration will see Stampd adding some of their contemporary aesthetic to Puma’s technical construction, resulting in a new product line, Stampd Athletics by Puma.

To debut the partnership, Stampd and Puma came together to create the Desert Storm R698. This sneaker is recreated for the collaboration, taking the classic Puma R698 silhouette and adding subtle design differences such as a simplified upper, the inclusion of soft nubuck leather, and of course Stampd’s seasonal graphic on the heel of the shoe.

The Desert Strom R698 is a strong start for this new partnership. Browse some shots of the shoe above and be sure to keep an eye out for what these two powerhouses do next.
