Porsche and Puma announced today that they will be working together on a series of special sneakers to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the legendary Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7.
It was first shown at the Paris Motor Show in 1972 and was named after the Carrera Panamericana, which won its class in 1954 with a Porsche 550 Spyder. When the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 was released, the first Porsche to be named Carrera was the fastest car from Germany, with a top speed of 152 miles (245 km / h).
To celebrate this legacy, Puma has created the Puma x Porsche Suede RS 2.7, which is limited to 500 examples for each color. This limited series production is the first of its kind for a special sports car, which Porsche has made only 500 to meet the rules of homologation of the 4th group.

The shoes are available in 10 colors inspired by the paint options available to consumers in the 70s 911 Carrera RS 2.7. Eight color combinations of shoes will be available worldwide, while orange and black shoes are sold only in the Netherlands, and a pair of white and black shoes are offered only to Japanese consumers.
In addition to the colors, the shoe has an RS 2.7 motif on the back and side. There is a name for the Porsche and an inscription indicating them as one of the 500 shoes in the limited edition. Inside, at this time, the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 is printed on the inner sole.
Like the car we are celebrating now, the Puma Suede was originally a limited edition product. Initially, only 307 pairs ran to celebrate the Olympic champion Tommy Smith’s track number.
Now on sale In France (one of the only markets where we can find prices) Puma x Porsche Suede RS costs 2.7 € 120 ($ 127 at current exchange rates). In addition to shoes for this amount, you can visit the Porsche Museum for free until the end of 2022.
