Cape Town, South Africa – April 6, 2023 – PUMA’s newest collaborator Juun.J re-envisions the newly introduced PUMA Plexus sneaker, a progressive silhouette that signals a new design language.
A pioneer of South Korean fashion, Juun.J conveys modernism and structure through his distinct colour palette and eye for shapes. Imagined through the lens of Juun.J’s signature aesthetic, the Plexus is disguised under a functional, utility-inspired look that evokes high-end sensibilities.
The Plexus’ distinctive closure and unique lace construction are complemented by a glossy black carabiner fastened to the upper. Void of any prominent logos or graphics, the collaboration features a subtly debossed logo sitting on the heel, and co-branding on the tongue. Juun.J’s shadowy take on the Plexus is completely wrapped in black, from the outsole to the laces, while recycled mesh comprises the shoe’s sock liner.
The result is a powerful expression of both PUMA and Juun.J’s DNA. The highly structural and modern sneaker endeavors to challenge established designs, and transcend the ordinary.
The PUMA x Juun.J Plexus is available from April 8, 2023 from PUMA flagship stores, Superbalist and Archive. Recommended retail price R2999.
Notes to Editors:
Aspiring to become a future classic in the PUMA catalog, the Plexus is inspired by a seminal model from PUMA’s archive, the Mostro. The Plexus launched in January in a striking “Elektro Green” color scheme, with additional colorways coming later in 2023.
