Sneaker Spotlight: PUMA Disc Blaze “The Goonies”

Puma Disc Blaze "The Goonies"

Depending on your age, the 1985 film “The Goonies” is either a cult classic or a movie you may have never heard of. Obviously some important people over at PUMA loved the movie, as in 2008, a special version of the Disc Blaze was created to commemorate the film. The basic storyline of the movie was following the adventures of a group of kids, the Goonies, with the goal of finding the buried treasure from the pirate One-Eyed Willy to save their neighborhood.

The look of the sneaker takes from many different pieces of the movie. A special skull print overlay in black and white is the featured detail which is intercepted by a a gold PUMA stripe. Going along with the print are images straight from Willy’s treasure map used on the toebox and liner. The Disc system is created from a smoked translucent amber plastic. Hemp detailing was added in small bits along the toebox, tongue and heel, a perfect match to the accompanying bag. An official licensed product we see the “The Goonies” inscribed on the midsole, which brings the whole theme together.  As for literally bringing the whole thing together, we see that PUMA is issuing a hemp sack to tote these kicks.
