Where to buy the Puma x Barbie collaboration
This unique collaboration has produced a range of ready-to-wear apparel and two limited edition Barbie dolls.
We're used to seeing sportswear brands like Puma team up with other brands and celebrities to create exciting new fashion pieces. This year alone we've seen Puma join with ASOS to create an environmentally friendly range of clothing, with MAC for an unusual collab and, of course, with ambassador Selena Gomez to create an empowering footwear and apparel collection.
But the latest collab from Puma is a little left of centre. The brand has paired with Barbie to create a new generation of Puma suede sneakers and apparel as well as a limited edition Puma Barbie doll. The collaboration comes in celebration of the 50th birthday of the Puma suede sneakers.
We got a sneak peak of this particular collab at the beginning of November, but the apparel lines and the dolls didn't actually go on sale until 7 December. So everything from this collaboration is officially available for sale.
The classic-Barbie pink-suede sneakers are definitely the standout from this particular collab. Even if you're not a fan of pink, it's hard to look at them and not immediately reach for your credit card. Unfortunately, they're already sold out on the Puma website, so if they are restocked, you'll have to be quick to snag a pair of these. If bright pink isn't your thing, the apparel line also includes a toned-down black version of the sneakers with pink detailing. The apparel line also comes with a crop top, jacket, leggings, backpack and hat – all in black with barbie-pink accents.

The limited edition Barbies come in two variations – one with fair skin and one with dark skin. Both are fashionably dressed top to toe in Puma apparel. They wear Puma leggings, a crop top and, of course, both dolls are wearing a pair of the Barbie x Puma suede sneakers.
Where to buy the Puma x Barbie collab?
The most important question is, where can you buy these pieces? While Puma is stocked at a number of different stores, collaborations and limited edition lines generally only appear at the Puma online store and in selected physical Puma stores.
The Puma Barbie doll is slightly easier to find. You can shop both dolls right now on the Mattel website. Or you can find the dolls at other selected Barbie stockists like Big W – but you'll have to wait until 12 December for them to drop in store.
