Check out the Super Mario 3D All-Stars Collection by PUMA

Created to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Super Mario Bros. franchise, the latest drop features iconic Super Mario game colours, graphics and fan-favorite characters throughout.

The inspiration for this unisex footwear and apparel collection comes from the Super Mario 3D All-Stars™ game featuring three of Mario’s greatest adventures: Super Mario 64™, Super Mario Sunshine™ and Super Mario Galaxy™.

The design of the Future Rider Super Mario 64 (R1 999) takes nods from Super Mario’s first 3D adventure and his recognizable red and blue outfit, Wing Cap and the game’s landscape colour palette. Additional details include a set of bricks on the midsole, a wing embellishment on the heel and a Super Mario 64 hangtag.




The Future Rider Super Mario 64 as well as the Nintendo Knit Short (R1 499), Nintendo Tee (R799), Nintendo LS Tee (R999) and AOP Nintendo Hoodie (R1 999) is available from PUMA.com and at PUMA Select.

In 2007, Super Mario Galaxy took Mario out of this world and transported him into deep space. Also dropping on 27 November 2020 at PUMA Select and PUMA.com, the RS-Fast Super Mario Galaxy (R2 899) has a black, purple, white and metallic silver colour palette with a galactic print. Mario’s sidekick, Luma, is clearly noticeable throughout the design.


Dropping on 4 December, the Future Rider Nintendo Entertainment System™ (R2 499) shoe pays homage to Nintendo’s original console. The grey, red and black colour scheme is a direct nod to the system’s design and the tag on the shoe’s tongue features the cover of the first-ever Super Mario Bros. game. Other fun embellishments include the Power and Reset buttons and a hangtag shaped like the Classic NES™ Controller. Available from PUMA.com and at PUMA Select and Shelflife, as well as in kids (R1 999) and infant (R1 499) sizes at PUMA Select and PUMA.com.

Although not available in South Africa, the collection also features an updated take on the PUMA Clyde and a version of J. Cole’s signature basketball shoe: the RS-Dreamer.

First Look: Nike Blazer Mid 77 - 'Christmas'

This sneaker leans heavily on signature red and green palettes. The latter shade outfits the majority of the construction, polished atop the leather profile and toe box while matted and textured on the overlays, a set of panels whose woven pattern directly nods to ugly sweaters.

 

Elsewhere, red furnishes the Swoosh along the side just as it does the branded tongue patch, while heels finish entirely covered with a fur similar to what adorns Santa’s hat.

 

The Nike Blazer Mid 77 - 'Christmas' drops 2 December at selected retailers.

First Look: Nike Women's Dunk Disrupt - 'Dusty Pink'

This sneaker is dressed in a muted dusty pink shade. The uppers are crafted from technical mesh with leather overlays to represent the signature look of the Dunk itself. Nike’s signature Swoosh logo runs across both the lateral and medial sides for a clean branded look, with the foam exposed tongue also displaying a logo tab and another at the heel tab.
