Striding through the summer and looking ahead to Fall/Winter 2021 can only mean one thing. Another size? preview has landed before us, building hype and anticipation for another jam-packed lineup of collaborations and exclusives courtesy of the UK sneaker powerhouse. As we've come to expect from earlier previews, FW21 is full of surprises.
In amongst the thirty-strong limited-edition products on offer is a three-way collaboration between retailer size?, The Godfather, and PUMA. Three it would appear is the magic number, as the team up puts eyes on three takes on PUMA's archival Palermo silhouette. A dual celebration of sorts, the collab marks the Palermo's return from the archive and spotlights the second-highest ranked movie of all time.
Each of the colorways unveiled receives its name from iconic scenes and locations from the 1972 movie classic, further referenced through color and gold foil quotes placed subtly under the eyelet flap. True fans of the franchise are sent on a style-led nostalgia trip, landing at "The Wedding," "The Bar," and finally, "The Restaurant." By borrowing the green hues present in the movie's opening scene to dress its suede and mesh upper, "The Wedding" delivers on what is arguably one of the cleanest renditions of the Palermo yet. Of course, the fan-favorite gum outsoles also deserve credit.
A full release of the size? x PUMA x The Godfather Palermo collaboration raffle is set to open on January 29, exclusively to size?.
