Automakers and sneaker makers getting together to create cool merch and products is nothing new. When it comes to Porsche, the German automaker has been part of loads of collaboration projects, the latest being a joining of forces between Porsche Asia Pacific and Puma, which immediately tells us that unless you have a proper hookup in Thailand, you’re going to battle to buy any of these sneakers without having a reseller in the mix bumping the price up tenfold. The limited edition sneakers form part of the ‘Dreams in Colours’ celebration organised to celebrate three decades of Porsche in Thailand. Keeping with the times, Porsche also partnered up with 88rising, a pioneering global music and media company to run a #Dreamsincolours competition via the social media platform TikTok with the aim of empowering aspiring Thai artists to reach their dreams. With everything all about colour, this sneaker collection is known as the kaleidoscopic collection, designed to complement the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS 30 Years Porsche Thailand Edition If you haven’t seen it, the car is a special limited-edition model created to mark three decades of Porsche in Thailand. It was available in a choice of seven different colours, representing the different days of the week in Thai culture and it was sold out in near record time. The Porsche x Puma California Pro 911 ‘Dreams in Colours’ Edition also comes in seven bright hues; Signal Yellow, Ruby Star, Signal Green, Pastel Orange, Riviera Blue, Ultra Violet and Fire Red. In a nod to the year that Thailand officially began importing and distributing Porsche cars, only 1 993 pairs will see the light of day. Ludwig Tsai, General Manager of Puma Thailand said: “It’s been a privilege to work with Porsche to bring our collaborative Dreams in Colours campaign to life, to celebrate three decades of enduring Porsche passion in Thailand. The release of Puma’s very special, 1,993 sneaker-strong collection has been designed so a larger group of Porsche and Puma fans can celebrate in style, specifically Thailand’s young dreamers.”
Take a look at the YouTube video that explores the way Porsche celebrates being in the Southeast Asian country while showcasing the amazing visuals and talent seen in the country. The Porsche Asia Pacific collaboration with Puma to create a limited edition run of themed shoes is one way the company is highlighting what Thailand has to offer, and we love it. The only part we don't love is that these cool kicks are only available in limited numbers, in a different part of the world: Dreams in Colours - Celebrating 30 Years of Porsche in Thailand | Porsche Thailand
