The fit of Puma Disc Blaze x BAPE collaboration is fairly accommodating especially to those with wide feet because of its Disc Blaze technology that can be adjusted accordingly to the size of the feet. It gives a comfortable feel to the feet and it runs true to size.

Puma Disc Blaze x BAPE is a fusion of high street style and sports. This collaboration was highly anticipated since it combined the best of the early 90’s sneaker innovation with new contemporary aesthetics. It is a much sought-after shoe because its iconic style fits a wide variety of styles. The shoe is best worn with jeans or shorts.

The patented Disc Technology stands out as it is not only functional, but also adds a distinguishing element to the Puma Disc Blaze x BAPE. It is very clear that sneaker fans can easily point out the shoe’s heritage based on the disc alone.

BAPE’s artistic hand also raises the aesthetic profile of the shoe. It clearly ramps up the stylish charm as the sneaker becomes truly a shoe that can effortlessly handle the demands of streetwear appeal. The hallmark camouflage color is highly-indicative of Puma’s collaborative partner.

The Puma Disc Blaze Technology is currently the world’s fastest non-lacing system, but it was first released in the early 90’s as a piece of performance gear for track and field. It was originally built for running, but it was later then utilized in other disciplines like tennis and basketball. When Puma took a short hiatus in the production of the Disc Blaze series, the Disc Technology was also momentarily put on hold. In 1993, the Puma Disc Blaze was introduced in the “OG” colourway.

In 2012, Puma unlocked its footwear archive and had its first collaboration with sneaker designer, Ronnie Fieg. The OG Disc was reconstructed and the Puma Disc Blaze OG “Cove” x Ronnie Fieg was released. Puma then collaborated with other designers in the likes of Hussein Chalayan in which the Haast Disc was introduced and athlete, Usain Bolt in which the Puma Autodisc was unveiled.

It was in 2015, that Puma collaborated with A Bathing Ape or much known as BAPE, a top Japanese street wear brand.  The Puma Disc Blaze x BAPE was released in which the Disc was decked in all-over BAPE camo print.

  • The Puma Disc Blaze x BAPE sits on a Trinomic midsole with the iconic Disc Blaze lock system.
  • 3M is also used around the heel of the shoe and part of the sides.
  • Synthetic Camo Fabric is used along with suede and premium leather in the upper.
  • A dual branding on each heel of the shoe.
