In-N-Out inspires some very on-brand Puma sneakers

Attention, Animal-style die-hards: In-N-Out-themed Puma sneakers are here. The white sneakers feature In-N-Out’s signature red and yellow color combo, as well as palm tree-print laces that mimic the ceramic tiles found inside each restaurant. (Of note: These are not an official collab with the fast-food chain, so get yours quick before the inevitable cease-and-desist letter goes out.)
