Puma announced last year Lima as a brand ambassador, joining the likes of Cara Delevingne and Selena Gomez. And she’s not just serving as the face of its campaigns — she’s a designer, too.
“This year, about a month ago, I became one of the designers also for Puma,” Lima told FN. “It’s incredible to be on the other side as a creative. To me, designing shoes was a pleasure; I’m at the gym six times a week, so when you’re working out and trying different exercises you understand what’s missing and what you can add to a line of clothes and shoes.”
In Lima’s first collection with the brand, she created boxing-inspired pieces with a touch of streetwear style vibe, including three different colorways of the Shatter XT sneakers. “We created these three different boxing shoes now and they’re incredible for intensive-type workouts,” said Lima. “Your ankles are completely protected, and [the sneakers] are super lightweight and also fashionable for outside the gym.”
When asked what she hopes to see in the athletic footwear future, the ambassador answered: “I’m looking forward to seeing improvements in running shoes; it’s not easy to find good running shoes. Running is part of my exercise and the most important part to running efficiently is what you wear on your feet.”
The 33rd annual FNAA ceremony is sponsored by Klarna, Geox, The Style Room Powered by Zappos, FDRA, Micam Milano and Buchanan’s Scotch Whisky.
