The Dazed and Confused x Puma Suede takes after the film’s poster while adding a few small details catering to stoners. The shoe’s underlays take on an iridescent purple and blue color scheme with debossed smiley faces looking quite zooted. A dark blue suede then forms the overlays, including a Formstrip with a hidden stash pocket.

Fat laces popularized in the ’90s have also been added along with a velcro strap over the tongue. Fat laces popularized in the ’90s have also been added along with a velcro strap over the tongue. Puma says the upper features a rolling paper-inspired tear-away panel that reveals another smiley, although that detail can’t be seen in the official images.

A custom shoe box features some of the movie’s cast as part of a graphic designed on lined paper.

April 20, the annual weed-centric holiday, isn’t as flush with themed sneaker releases this year as it once was. Reebok does have its own 4/20 sneaker as well, however, but it’s opted to go a more serious route by collaborating with Pleasures and highlighting the injustice of people still incarcerated for marijuana offenses even after widespread legalization.

The “Dazed and Confused” x Puma Suede releases April 20 through Puma’s website. Pricing is set at $90.
