PUMA and size? Touch Up the Palermo to Celebrate ‘The Godfather’

There are only so many objectively appropriate answers to the age-old question “what is the greatest movie ever made?” With so much room for argument, The Godfather has always been an ideal go-to response. While it may be hard to believe, the quintessential film turns 50 years old this year, and what better way to celebrate its anniversary than with a cannoli and some new shoes? In collaboration with size?, the elite English sneaker shop, Puma has classed up its iconic, archival Palermo sneakers in tribute to Coppola’s classic.

Each of the three new colorways pays homage to a significant scene from the film. ‘The Wedding’ is coated in green and streaks of white and gold to evoke the film’s emblematic opening scene, while ‘The Bar’ features highlights of red, blue, and white, serving as a tribute to where Michael Corleone first meets Appolonia’s father. Lastly, ‘The Restaurant’ is the trio’s most vibrantly colored pair, dressing up the Palermo in a South Beach-adjacent pattern inspired by the neon lights that juxtapose what took place at Michael’s dinner with Virgil.

While all of these new Palermo colorways are impressive, each of the collaborative pairs is also composed of premium materials, including tumbled leather and supple suede, making for a shoe that embodies Italian craftsmanship in every sense of the word. On top of that, the revived sneakers sit on a retro gum rubber sole for maximized grip and unrivaled style.

If you’re looking to get your hands on one of these new sets of kicks, then you’ll have to do so through size?’s app-based system, size?launches. The app is similar to Nike’s SNKRS and adidas CONFIRMED, allowing you to enter for a chance to acquire upcoming releases. No prices have been formally released for the Godfather Pumas yet, but they are set to release on February 3rd. If you ask us, this new collection of shoes will be pretty hard to refuse.
