The other silhouette in the range is the CA Pro, which will come in a Puma white, star sapphire and amazon green colorway in junior sizing.

What We Originally Reported on Jan. 27
A new collaboration between Puma and Minecraft is coming.
The popular video game series confirmed its forthcoming project with the German sportswear brand last week on Twitter with a short video. The teaser showed Minecraft’s ocelot character taking on the role of Puma’s iconic cat logo and being chased around by a creeper. The video caption read, “Watch while we leap into a new collaboration with Puma coming soon! #PumaxMinecraft.”

The previews continued yesterday when the video game posted a 40-second video of the classic Puma Suede silhouette being recreated in the game. The virtual sneaker dons a predominantly brown-based color scheme that’s coupled with green and blue accents. Completing the look are white shoelaces and a matching outsole. Despite the recreation of the Puma Suede on Minecraft, the collaborators have yet to confirm if a sneaker collab will be released for this partnership.
“We’re on track to get our next collaboration built! We can’t share quite yet, but we can ‘shoe’ you this; so be sure to watch until the end! #PUMAxMinecraft,” Minecraft wrote for the description of the video.
This isn’t the first time that Puma has teamed up with a video game. The sportswear brand tapped Nintendo and Animal Crossing in August to deliver a footwear and apparel collection, which featured various hues and graphics that resembled the aesthetic of the video game.
Although several teasers were shared this month, release details for the Puma x Minecraft collab have not yet been confirmed by the parties involved.
