Puma partnered with music artist Big Sean and New York street artist DAIN in promoting the sneaker.

Since then, the shoe has been released in different iterations, featuring a similar design but with different materials and tweaks. Among the models from the Puma Breaker collection are the Puma Breaker Hi Gum sneakers. They elevate the collar to a mid-cut design while introducing various elements to update the silhouette.
