First Look: PUMA x Mile Rider

PUMA introduces the Mile Rider, a new women’s addition to the Rider family.

Starting off as one of the first jogging shoes in the 80s, the Rider has a long history in the PUMA family. Influenced by ‘90s branding and jet-ski inspired graphics with retro inspiration, the Mile Rider features bright pops of colour, a synthetic leather look, patent overlays and pink checked print on the base.


Comfortable cushioning makes the Mile Rider the perfect shoe for outdoor adventures and time in the sun, whether safely strolling near the ocean or hanging out in your own back yard.


The shoe is bold and fashion forward, much like PUMA’s newest ambassador Winnie Harlow. “The Mile Rider has become my new favourite sneaker,” says Winnie. “I love the sporty look, the colour combination, and how comfy they are – they are definitely summer ready.”

Dropping 25 September 2020, get the Mile Rider in PUMA Black-Elektro Green from PUMA.com, PUMA stores and selected retailers or pick up a pair in PUMA White-PUMA Black from PUMA.com, PUMA stores and selected retailers.

adidas Originals Drops the Clean Classics Collection to Help End Plastic Waste


adidas Originals remakes its most iconic sneakers to address the concern of our generation - plastic waste. adidas Originals serves up Clean Classics, a range of court classics, redesigned to reduce the brand’s impact on the environment. At the core of this pledge is Primegreen; a series of high-performance materials containing a minimum of 50% recycled content. Primegreen and the Clean Classics collection act to challenge production conventions, using 70% recycled materials for the uppers, as well as renewable and reclaimed rubber for the soles. The resulting sneakers are vegan, in an effort to reduce our use of virgin materials and our impact on the environment.  By re-thinking pattern cutting, the Clean Classics collection not only reduces unnecessary waste, but also creates distinctive, new cuts and details.

Clean Classics includes the Superstar, Stan Smith, Continental 80, Top Ten, SC Premiere, Supercourt, and Superstar Bold, all of which are remade for 2020. adidas Originals’ Clean Classics pays homage to the brand’s heritage creating white leather sports shoes, with a new pledge of responsibility that shows adidas’ commitment to ending plastic waste. The truth is that these shoes alone will not save the planet - a claim which appears in the design language of the collection, via stylistic handwriting, however Clean Classics remains committed to continuously innovate in the field of sustainability. Special Clean Classics emblems can be found throughout, as a reminder of the brand’s commitment. The composite nature of the sole creates a bricolage effect of color flecks leaving the clean white upper’s mostly unadorned, pops of color can be found on the laces and stylistic text.

The Clean Classics collection is available online and at adidas Originals stores at a retail price of R1899.
