Full Animal Crossing: New Horizons PUMA collection


There are four pairs to choose from, each with its own unique design so there’s truly something for everyone here. The Suede is PUMA’s most famous shoe, with the Animal Crossing variant featuring a beige hairy suede material with a New Horizons leaf pattern on the side and a blue sole.

The Wild Rider has a more sporty look but keeps the same island-themed color scheme throughout. Best of all, it has villagers’ faces printed on the side. Next is the Future Rider which features a color block design, with the leaf printed on the back.

Lastly, there are a pair of slides themed, again, around the island leaf – not something you’d probably leave the house wearing unless on a late-night grocery run, but cute nonetheless.
