PUMA Release The 2023 'Tricks' Pack

Paying homage to some hits from the past as part of the brand’s 75th anniversary, PUMA unveil the latest Tricks pack, which sees the Ultra Ultimate homaging the original 2014 pack, and the Future Ultimate homaging the 2016 set.

PUMA is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, and as part of said celebrations the brand is looking into the archive to pay homage to some of its classic looks. And so now we get the latest rendition of the Tricks pack, once again helping PUMA’s roster of players stand out on pitch through the odd colour combinations, ready for the season’s run-in. It’s the third Tricks collection since the concept was first introduced for the 2014 World Cup, and there’s strong influence from both previous sets here.

The PUMA Tricks concept comes from an unlikely source; it was created on a sheer spur of the moment piece of magical thinking from none other than Rigobert Song, who, when lacing up his boots at the 1998 World Cup in France, decided to put a red PUMA King on his right foot and a yellow PUMA King on his left – a move that will forever live in the memory, it’s what the Tricks Pack is dedicated too.

For the Ultra Ultimate the influence comes from the original 2014 pack, with the right foot in pink (“Sunset Pink”) and the left in blue (“Hero Blue”). It’s the perfect tribute to the OGs, with only the big, brash PUMA wording down the medial side of each boot missing.

For the Future Ultimate, it’s the 2016 pack that’s the influence, only it flips the colours to have the right boot as the pink and the left foot as the yellow. The official colourway is “Puma Black/Ravish/Fast Yellow”, and it once again sees the pink and yellow vamps connecting to the black heel with a geometric pattern, while the PWRTAPE technology dances across the upper in the opposing colour (yellow on the right and pink on the left).

Dual colours all round, offering up an eye catching aesthetic which ever silo you favour.
