Pirelli, Puma launch motorsports-style shoe

Replicat-X has racing tire tread design for enhanced grip

Tire-producer Pirelli and athletic shoemaker Puma have contributed their expertise to create a shoe designed “to control the grip off and on track.” The Replicat-X, they say, was inspired by modern sports cars. It launches May 15.

Calling the design “revolutionary,” the companies said the shoe has “a completely fresh silhouette made with a sole and upper construction that helps you to control the grip off and on track.”

Variety of colors are available

The shoe also launches a new Puma motorsports design philosophy of “bringing racing to the road.”

The shoe has an oversized full rubber outsole, perforated Microfiber-suede upper on the vamp, lateral mesh panels for breathability, and a molded sock liner. It features the same tread pattern as Pirelli’s Cinturato Blue tires, which are designed to maximize traction on wet racing surfaces. 

Grip for the car or for casual wear

The shoes retail for $120.
