LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, USA – There was an electric wave that disrupted the silent Nevada summer night when The Weeknd and PUMA officially unveiled the PUMA x XO Parallel. The debut collaborative sneaker and first installment within the PUMA x XO collection, the Parallel is a mid-cut sneaker boot inspired by military and utilitarian gear that’s fully decked- out in luxurious Italian nubuck leather upper, .

For the festivities for this release a studio in Las Vegas was transformed into an urban playground where the PUMA x XO Parallel was on display amidst hot rods, convertibles and container installations. The Weeknd took the stage and performed a few of his Billboard-topping hits like Starboy and I Feel It Coming while wearing the Olive Green colorway of the Parallel -which releases later this year capping off another memorable night for the duo.

The PUMA x XO Parallel drops on August 24th in premium sneaker retailers and PUMA stores worldwide.
