Ink On Suede

  • Written on:

We have no problem boasting when it comes to the PUMA Suede. If you ask us, we'll tell you that it's more than a sneaker. It's legend.

It is a shoe turned work of art: with the right attire and appropriate dose of swagger, it’s a feast for the eye that reflects personal taste as much as its iconic shoe status.
Which got us thinking about other artistic interpretations of style and expression.
With this new “Ink On Suede” collection, we introduce 3 limited edition styles that were designed by Italian tattoo artists Davide Di Stefano, Heinz, and Rino Valente.

Davide draws from a black and gold world. The graphic sockliner motif carries through to the lining and laces, which feature a gold foil application.

Heinz’s take is an ivory Suede with a black pop Formstrip and graphic laces and lining. The sockliners feature his namesake against multi-colored skulls and dragons, floral motifs and spray paint effects.

Rino mashes up symbols, skulls, and foliage effects. His Suede is grey with graphic laces and brown laces, complemented by a graphic lining and fully colored sockliner.

Die Schuhe sind in Österreich ab sofort exklusiv im 6th Floor/Steffl in Wien und bei Phönix in Klagenfurt erhältlich.
