Sportswear brand Puma has joined forces with local sneaker boutique Limited EDT to commemorate the Jubilee Year.

It has come up with three designs that pay homage to Singapore. The first one, titled Blaze of Glory SG50 (left), was launched last week and takes inspiration from the Merlion. It incorporates silver grey pony hair on its toecap, reminiscent of the Merlion's mane, 3-D printed fish scales on its body and red-and-white laces.

The second design relates to Singapore's thriving port industry, while the third illustrates how Singapore is a metropolis. They will be released some time in November and January respectively.

Prices range from $240 to $259. Available at Limited EDT stores and online from www.limitededt.com
