PUMA’s archives are filled with some of the most important footwear in sports, and this month, the German brand is honoring one of those sneakers with a special new release. This week, the PUMA Bluebird arrives in the four-part “Cities” pack.
The PUMA Bluebird’s origins date back to the early 1980s, at the height of the terrace shoe craze when sneakers were getting lighter and more comfortable with each new silhouette. The Bluebird name itself comes from Cardiff City FC, who are affectionately known by the aviary name, and is constructed from very simple cuts of suede or leather, creating the base layer, toe box, and heel counters. The latest release pits the vintage trainer in four fresh color schemes, each themed after a city. First up, the St. Petersburg pair sports a blue upper with bold red PUMA Formstrips and a white tongue to complete the look, while the Amsterdam look blankets almost the whole shoe in orange, leaving space for the signature Formstrip in royal blue. The Rome colorway moves away from suede, instead opting for an all-white leather construction with baby blue accents hidden around the shoe, while the London color scheme starts with a bold purple upper and is finished by bright orange accents.
