Sneakers are probably the most comfortable pair of shoes to be ever made. They don’t only look super cool, but can also be worn with almost any outfit if styled the right way. As new designs are being released frequently, brands often collaborate with celebrities for their collections. Dolce & Gabbana is one such brand that recently collaborated with American professional basketball player, Anthony Leon “P. J.” Tucker for a new limited-edition pair of sneakers.
Even celebrities like Dua Lipa, Selena Gomez, Pharrell Williams and J. Cole endorsed some very stylish sneakers this year. Have a look!
1. Dolce & Gabbana PJ Tucker
Inspired by the 90’s basketball sneakers, these limited edition PJ Tucker sneakers are created for, both, men and women. Made with split-grain leather on the upper with calfskin details, the sneakers are available in two iterations, tan and beige, for a more subtle look and orange and yellow for a bright pop of colour. To celebrate the collection’s launch, 100 pairs of sneakers have the NBA star’s autograph along with an exclusive NFT.

2. Dua Lipa X Puma Maize
Puma’s first-ever collaboration with pop star Dua Lipa, the Mayze sneakers are said to be “made for those who embrace the spotlight, on stage and off,”. Available in two colour combinations, white and beige and white and black, the sneakers feature a chunky midsole, contrasting panels, and gold foil branding giving the sneakers a whole new silhouette.
To celebrate American rapper and singer J. Cole, and the drive to chase one’s dreams, Puma released the RS-Dreamer sneakers. A street-meet plus court-ready design, the sneakers come with a ProFoam midsole and a fully knitted upper with suede overlays and the J. Cole Dreamer emblem at heel.
Here is another product born out of an ongoing partnership between Pharrell Williams and Adidas Originals. Adidas recently unveiled a new variant of the Adidas HU NMD sneakers. Featuring the words “human race” in several languages on the forefoot, the sneakers rework the iconic NMD silhouette, with boost cushioning and a rubber outsole.
Along with brand ambassador Selena Gomez, Puma introduced two new versions of the Cali sneaker, the Cali Star and Cali Star Metallic. A low-profile sneaker constructed in a bright all-white upper and rubber midsole, the Cali Star has a very classic look while the metallic Cali Star comes with a shimmering new plate on the sole, adding a nice touch of sparkle.
