Puma Fierce Swan History

2016 saw Puma bank on the marketability and ubiquity of celebrity Kylie Jenner. By bringing stars like Jenner into Puma’s fold, Puma is creating a new atmosphere that it is really an “it” brand that can take on the biggest names in the business. After an almost so-so performance, people are now, more than ever, noticing the Jumping Cat’s amazing shoes.

Puma launched the Fierce line during this year to cater to those who are always active and on the go without losing their stylishness. In this regard, the Fierce series, which is based on ballet movements and designed for training, is clearly one of the best options in the market.  In just a year, the line continues to grow as it now includes the Swan version of the Fierce.

Puma wanted to create a shoe design that exhibits beauty, power, and grace that can be seen in the swans. The Jumping Cat brand collaborated with with the New York City Ballet and designers from Boston and Germany to come up with an elegant versatile design that can provide optimum performance.
