When we start making a list that includes sneakers celebrating their 45th anniversaries, the list is very small. Not only have exceedingly few shoes even made it this far, some that have like the Chuck Taylor go back so far that sneaker brands weren’t even celebrating anniversaries like these when it had one. That and a mere 450 pairs of these Japanese crafted Puma Suede ‘Sapphires’ makes them a very special release, so it only makes sense that this tribute to the company’s most enduring design comes in deluxe packaging. These come in a sort of portfolio that bears the markings of this special birthday, including the same gemstone icon that’s engraved into their heels. Click through to get a sense of the beauty and craftsmanship in this pair and be ready when they go up for sale at select retailers like SNS.
