The first is the most subdued and uses cream white and black, while another mixes hues of burgundy and red, and a final option uses a violet and black colorblocking that is distinctly split horizontally.

Hello Kitty x Puma Suede – Red/White ($95)

Hello Kitty was first designed 44 years ago in Japan and has since become an international sensation with a thriving pop culture presence. Puma has brought its own iconic Suede model together with the animated character, resulting in a white and red Hello Kitty pattern across the upper paired with thick red suede overlays on the laces, toe, stripe, and heel. Subtle gold flecks hit the midsole to pair with the gold branding on the upper, while a translucent outsole features a red bow illustration beneath it.

New Balance delivers two made in the UK 1500 models that add some pop. One mixes premium nubuck, suede, smooth leather, and mesh on the upper with a purple mudguard, a bright blue midfoot, and multi-colored stitching on the heel and tongue logos over a white ENCAP midsole. A second offering tones it down a bit, moving the purple to the lining and a tiny hit on the midsole and keeping the multi-colored embroidery on an otherwise black and white upper.
