Editor’s Notes: PUMA is back alongside Chinatown Market founder Mike Cherman for a new collaborative collection of footwear and apparel. The capsule is highlighted by a reimagining of the brand’s OG silhouette, now referred to as the Cali-0.
The Cali-0 features a printed upper that mimics a swimming pool, then welcoming rubber tooling wrapped around the toe and the heel. The lining, footbed, and laces also bear the pool print, which is a nod to the drained pools that skaters famously used in ’70s California.
Furthermore, the LA-inspired collaboration, which encapsulates the spirit of Dogtown surfers who revolutionized skateboarding, includes a skate-inspired checkerboard printed hoodie and T-shirt, and the MCS Pool Track Top and Pant in allover pool print.
PUMA and Mike Cherman’s latest collaborative collection is available now through PUMA.com and select stores worldwide.
