The slides — offered in black, white and shell (a light pink) — were first released in April on Puma’s website, in Puma stores and in select global retailers. The $80 slide sandals were offered in women’s half sizes 5.5 to 10.5. The sandals are a new take on Puma’s classic Leadcat slides that are worn by soccer players off the pitch. The faux fur strap has a satin-foam backing, and the Puma logo is embroidered on the top.
About 30 minutes after the slides went live on the Puma website in April, they were sold out and were subsequently listed on eBay for up to $1,000. Those who were left empty-handed will have another opportunity with this rerelease.
When Rihanna’s Creepers were released in new colorways in late May, Puma experienced such heavy volume on its site that it crashed several times before the shoes sold out.
