"Sports gave me a lot of identity and personality"
She Moves Us - Interview with General Manager Sportstyle, Maria Valdes
DJ Snake is a great addition to our PUMA family, we are delighted to welcome him. When we decided to bring Mirage back from the archive, it was important we gave it a fresh perspective for today. Connecting it to the world of DJ culture felt natural, as like the Mirage, DJ culture gained significant popularity in the 1970s. Sneakers and music have always been vehicles for youth culture, so who better to be the face of Mirage than DJ Snake?
PUMA’s Mirage Tech is part of PUMA’s growing selection of Futro styles, a mashup of retro sneakers with futuristic inspiration. This revamped style features trippy colors, eye-catching materials, and futuristic elements taking inspiration from the lights, energy, and atmosphere of electronic dance music shows.
As a sneakerhead I’ve always followed what PUMA releases, featuring some of them in my videos and performances. With this new partnership, I will be supporting the Mirage franchise, bringing a new perspective to one of my favorites silhouettes.
