CARLSBAD, Calif. – Today, PUMA Golf revealed its highly anticipated collaboration with Arnold Palmer Enterprises, the PUMA Golf x Arnold Palmer Collection, delivering head-to-toe style and comfort fit for a King. Blending his trademark cool with modern technologies and fabrics, PUMA x Arnold Palmer offers a complete range of tops, bottoms, headwear and footwear that pays homage to golf’s global icon.
Drawing inspiration from the pride of Latrobe, PA’s ‘Life Well Played,’ the PUMA x Arnold Palmer collection delivers the classic styles that Mr. Palmer wore during his career on and off the course, using a blend of modern and heritage materials authentic to Mr. Palmer’s style. This exclusive partnership celebrates the life and excellence of Mr. Palmer through nostalgic color palettes, storied prints, and personal detailing on every piece. From Bay Hill to each golfer’s own favorite 19th hole, this collection will bring out the Palmer in all of us.
“Over the last four years we’ve had the honor of working with the Arnold Palmer team to pay homage to Mr. Palmer with our limited-edition accessories and footwear during Arnold Palmer Invitational week,” said Chris MacNeill, Senior Product Line Manager, PUMA Golf. “That relationship kick-started this collaboration and allowed us to build something special, that fans of The King and the game of golf will truly appreciate. With this collection, we dove deep into the archives and worked closely with his family and colleagues to bring the story of his life into every piece. Mr. Palmer was an icon who didn’t just follow the trends, he set them, and we feel we captured that essence in a modern way in this new collection.”
The PUMA Golf X Arnold Palmer Collection features 4 polos, 1 woven shirt, 3 layering pieces, 3 headwear choices and 1 footwear offering. The flagship selections in the collection include:
Signature Tipped Polo ($80) – constructed of a natural and synthetic fabric blend, this selection features contrast tipping on the sleeves and collars in a classic polo. Available in Pale Pink, Legion Blue and Stone Blue with a tonal circle umbrella logo exclusive to PUMA on the left chest. Each polo in the collection contains an internal neck print showcasing iconic moments (wedding, USCG service, flying his plane and Major Championship wins) in Mr. Palmer’s life both on and off the course.
Citation Print Woven ($90) – made from a lightweight cotton/spandex blend, this short-sleeved button down exudes laidback vibes with an all-over airplane print.
