Outer wear gets mixed up and redefined in this iconic silhouette

We know what you’re thinking, but you’re wrong. This shoe is made for earth. It looks all intergalactic and stuff (that’s the point) but it works just fine on sidewalks and the like. This season, PUMA Creative Director Hussein Chalayan took “outer” wear to its most extreme definition by looking at outer space and astronaut gear for inspiration. The resulting Conflate Graphic is stacked with terrestrial functionality and a hi-fi print inspired by the heat reflective materials used on the exterior of space vehicles. This silhouette is a slimmer, more refined version of its former self, topped off with an eye-catching, thin foil strip that runs along the length of the shoe on either side. The soft, waxy leather is underlined by a cold-cemented sole that keeps this premium kick simple, smooth, and ready for walking on all over this world.
