Puma x Speedracer | Mac-5 & X-9

Speedracer just entered movie theaters and to celebrate the occasion Puma has teamed up with them to produce 2 signature sneakers, inspired by the cars in the movie.
The Scattista Lo Speed Racer M5 is modeled after Speed Racer’s car, the iconic Mach 5.  The shoe reflects the design of the car by incorporating the same large red M and number 5.  Modeled after PUMA’s existing Scattista silhouette, which has brought a new look to motorsport lifestyle design, this shoe incorporates PUMA’s revolutionary UNI construction in which the shoe’s upper is sewn directly onto the sole.
The Scattista Lo Speed Racer X9 reflects the film’s mysterious character, Racer X.  Elements of Racer X’s black suit and mask, complete with his “X” motif, have been re-interpreted via the silver PUMA Formstrip, while the look of his iconic number 9 black and yellow car has been incorporated into the shoe’s design. Modeled after PUMA’s existing Scattista silhouette, which has brought a new look to motorsport lifestyle design.
The two sneakers are available now in stores. After the jump you can find more detailed images as well as images of the two cars they were inspired by.
