The new PUMA X First Mile training collection is out now

The FUSE XT (R2399.00) training shoe utilises yarn made from recycled plastic to create shoelaces, lining, and a footbed cover that are 100% recycled poly and lavender materials that are 64%.
 
With a 4mm drop and a wide toe box, FUSE provides a stable stance while the internal midsole provides shock absorption for heavily weighted workouts. A TPU heel clip offers a boost of support and durable PUMAGRIP provides all-purpose traction for maximum grip during quick agility movements. The abrasion-resistant mesh upper allows for flexibility while also protecting from wear and tear movements like rope climbs.

PUMA x FIRST MILE collection isn’t just about turning plastic into product. This is a collection rooted in cooperative opportunity and human connection—one that threads people together around a decision to do better. First Mile is a people-focused network that strengthens micro-economies in Taiwan, Haiti, and Honduras by collecting plastic bottles to create jobs and reduce environmental waste. Through First Mile, this plastic is sorted, cleaned, shredded, and turned into yarn that makes products with purpose. The pieces in this collection are made from post-consumer plastic collected in Taiwan.

Stronger communities, cleaner planet — from the first mile forward.
