PUMA works in collaboration with Mattel's Hot Wheels on introducing a new collaborative sneaker entitled the 'Bone Shaker.' The Bone Shaker is a reworked iteration of the label's signature RS-X silhouette, with design touches that recall the nostalgic toy cars. Across the uppers are a predominantly black hue, with contrasting bright pops of blue and yellow tones.
The colorway draws inspiration directly from the Bone Shaker toy car that made its first debut back in 2006. This collaborative project is meant to celebrate Hot Wheels' 50th year with plans for more colorways later this season. The formstrip signature to PUMA is designed to look like its moving to nod to the overall theme of the sneaker.
