Pirelli, a major international tire brand has teamed up with Puma for designing shoes that are as strong as a racing car.
Pirelly have introduced the new “Replicat-X” of Puma which is inspired by modern sports cars. In an attempt to bring Motorsport racing to road, both companies have brought forth Replicat-X, an all-new silhouette made up of sole and upper construction which helps you to Stick to the track.
Pirelli has blended its expertise of designing and developing CINTURATO Blue tire with Puma’s Motorsport heritage to create the new ‘Replicat-X’ Shoe.
The newly introduced shoe is designed to perform in a similar way to the modern supercar which can convey the roar of the racetrack to the street.
With a low F1 Car inspired profile, the shoe comes with an “Oversized” full rubber outsole. This is used in tandem with a comfortable molded sock-liner. Pirelli’s unique CINTURATO Blue tread pattern which is used for giving the tire the highest level of traction at wet races has been used on the sole to give customers who use the shoes a measure of grip and control.
The shoe’s upper sports a perforated Microfiber-suede on the vamp, as well as lateral mesh panels for breathability, making the shoe suitable for really fast walking or running and giving it an advantage from an aerodynamic perspective. Pirelli branding is also seen on the midfoot, the tongue pull tab, and the bottom of the sole in the form of the company’s distinctive red and yellow colored logo. The Puma touch is seen in the bright blue translucent form strip down the side, the black heel and refreshing green highlights.
The new Replicat – X shoe was pre-launched in selected stores on April 26 and will be available at the retail level from May 15.
