Puma celebrates the 10th anniversary of Sneakers76, the cult sneaker shop based in Taranto, Italy, featuring an exclusive version of the iconic sneaker, Blaze of Glory. A running sneaker from the Trinomic family, it was born in the early nineties – a historic and memorable decade for Puma that brought forward innovative silhouettes that became iconic and inimitable in time. It was designed for urban runners who in those years were pouring through the streets outside of the athletic tracks. Now the silhouette is beloved and collected by sneakers enthusiasts around the world.

Sneakers76, founded in 2006, has quickly become a point of reference for all Italians sneakers lovers thanks to passion, quality and experience. To celebrate this important anniversary they’ve created a limited edition capsule collection created in collaboration with four international brands, including Puma, with the aim interpreting the stories, legends and symbols of Taranto, Puglia ancient and fascinating cities.

For the new Blaze of Glory iteration, Puma and Sneakers76 chose story “The Legend of the Dolphin” and the symbol as inspiration. Ancient legends tell that Taranto was founded by the god Taras, son of Poseidon. During a sea-voyage, Taras was shipwrecked off the coast of Taranto and was rescued by a dolphin. To thank Poseidon for coming to his aid through that dolphin, Taras founded the city of Taranto. Today, the sea of Taranto is populated by dolphins. When you approach the city from the sea, you can see that the dolphins accompany the sailing ships towards the entrance of the Gulf of Taranto.

The PUMA x Sneakers76 Blaze of Glory SOFT have premium suede uppers with colours that take cues from the dolphin depicted on the Taranto city emblem. The lace guards come in suede brown while the numbers of pairs are marked in gold on the heels. The emblem of Taranto city is etched in gold and situated on the heels as well. Depicting the colour of the wave crests is the white midsole with ‘water drop’ effects and the Sea Blue colour of the outer sole. Finishing off the sneaker design is a sockliner with the PUMA and Sneakers76 logos embossed in leather.
