PUMA Teases New Animal Crossing Inspired Sneaker Collection

If there’s one thing that’s certain, it’s that Nintendo loves a brand crossover. From Build-a-bear characters to various items of clothing and even LEGO, Nintendo seems to be absolutely everywhere. Now, thanks to a recent teaser tweet, we now know that PUMA is working on Animal Crossing infused sneakers.

First teased via PUMA’s Twitter account, the original post features a subtle image featuring both the sports brands logo and the Animal Crossing: New Horizons font art.

Of course, while PUMA’s tweet is elusive, it didn’t take long before we actually got a look at the planned pumps. As part of a first look at the Animal Crossing crossover product, Sneaker Freaker revealed various images that show off a rather adorable pair of sneaks. Featuring a familiar New Horizons inspired colour scheme and print, the trainers are everything you’d expect. The collection also includes a hoodie with 34 different characters on the back, just in case you’re not actually looking for any footwear.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, how much do these wholesome sneakers actually cost? Well, PUMA hasn’t shared any pricing or release details as of yet. However, if other video game themed trainers, like these Mega Drive kicks, are anything to go by, they’re probably going to cost a few bells!

Here’s hoping PUMA releases some more details about its Animal Crossing collection soon. Again, the realm of video game themed clothing isn’t cheap. Therefore, you should probably increase your budget at least a little to avoid any financial shocks.
