One in all my greatest trivial complaints in life is that there is a extreme lack of trendy gaming merch. Shapeless t-shirts with a design slapped on the entrance of them have their place, after all, however I’ve at all times longed for one thing somewhat extra. Like Closing Fantasy 14 fats cat sneakers, maybe? Or perhaps a fats cat hoodie? Nicely, an upcoming Puma assortment is doing simply that.

The sportswear model is teaming up with the critically acclaimed MMORPG, placing its personal panther-y spin on some traditional motifs from throughout Eorzea. The gathering’s been made to honour the game’s upcoming tenth anniversary—of its re-release, anyway—and has been aptly named A Wardrobe Reborn. There’s somewhat little bit of every thing right here—sneakers, sweatpants, hoodies, hats and extra. 

A lot of the gadgets have taken inspiration from both the Dalamud emblem—the little fiery circle you see in a whole lot of Closing Fantasy 14 branding—or the fats cat, an lovable chubby feline that is been all over the place within the game. There is a fats cat backpack, sneakers, and an incredible hoodie that has its cute little face plastered all over the place. Dalamud will get slapped on a pleasant crossbody bag, some sweatpants and a bucket hat. There are 4 pairs of sneakers impressed by the darkness and lightweight themes prevalent throughout the game, too. I am positively not eyeing up each of these purple pairs.

Not solely that, however Puma’s put a Closing Fantasy twist on a few of its personal traditional designs. There is a purple t-shirt that appears an terrible lot just like the model’s panther emblem adorned with some Closing Fantasy-style illustrations, although it feels much more remiscent of Closing Fantasy 10’s vibes to me. An analogous makeover’s been given to the usual Puma lettering, too. It is an awesome mix between informal streetwear blended with a splash of my favorite MMO.

The gathering goes stay on Puma’s web site and in “choose Puma retail areas” on March 15 for many of the world, with North America in a position to be a part of the enjoyable on March 25. The one complicated factor is determining which items can be found through which area. I can see round half the gathering on Puma’s UK web site, with the sneakers nowhere to be seen. Hopefully the complete assortment will likely be accessible worldwide—I’ve requested Sq. Enix for clarification and can update if I hear something again.
