Mattel's Hot Wheels prepares to celebrate its 50th anniversary and works alongside PUMA on a series of footwear to mark the milestone -- the latest drop centers around the 'Sweet 16 Line' from 1968. The retro inspiration translates through the colorway of electric blue with orange accents.

The structural design is taken from PUMA's RS-X series and it boasts a construction of multiple materials throughout the uppers, including mesh and leather. The shape is bulky with a thick midsole informed by PUMA's signature 'Running System.' There are branding accents seen in the form of the familiar flamed Hot Wheels logo on the outsoles and on the heel. The nostalgic sneakers are now available for purchase online at PUMA.
