Embracing classic vibes while ushering in a fresh perspective for the fall season, this iteration boasts a sophisticated palette of beige and off-white tones, punctuated by sleek black accents on the upper. For those seeking an extra kick of spice, the Velophasis is also available in the daring ‘Cayenne Pepper’ colorway.

These Velophasis sneakers pay a powerful homage to a pivotal era in PUMA’s running innovations, drawing inspiration from the brand’s historic COMPLETE line—a defining element of its offerings during the 2000s. PUMA made strides in running technology during this period, introducing groundbreaking innovations like iCELL, e+CELL, and EverRide, which have since become industry standards for runners globally.

Taking cues from this rich heritage, the Velophasis reinterprets the essence of the era through the lens of Y2K culture. It seamlessly weaves in design elements that echo the 2000s aesthetic—think asymmetrical upper, honeycombed mesh, textured panels, and inserts inspired by the iconic 2000s PUMA range. However, this collaboration doesn’t merely replicate the past; it reinvents it using contemporary materials, providing a novel take on the nostalgic era in sportswear design.

In the PUMA x Pleasures Velophasis Layers, each step resonates with a harmonious fusion of the past and present—a testament to the enduring appeal of timeless design infused with a fresh and innovative spirit.
