Puma athlete RJ Barrett will be getting his very own player edition colorway of the Puma Fusion Nitro.
Previewed below, the Puma Fusion Nitro RJ pays tribute to Barrett’s upbringing and career with a tongue that prominently displays a maple leaf logo with a number 9 in it, tying his Canadian roots to his current on-court success in New York. While the inside of the tongue includes Barrett’s nickname, “Maple Mamba.” Opting for a mismatched colorway, details include one shoe that is Red and White, the colors of the Canadian flag, and the other, Blue and White, as an ode to his alma mater, Duke University. Barrett’s mantra, “Made Different,” is sported on the sock liner as a subtle reminder of his every day and every game mindset.
Retailing for $130, the Puma Fusion Nitro RJ is available now exclusively at the PUMA NYC Flagship store.
