Purple Unicorn Planet​ was launched to shake up women's streetwear sneaker designs. Tired of all the pink and purple women's shoes from Nike, Purple Unicorn Planet rallied support around the #pleasejustdoit on social media.

​PUP has since been encouraged to make their own women's sneaker. Stay tuned on www.purpleunicornplanet.com
