There is just no way that anybody could boxify or claim to pinpoint a predictable system to the manner in which my peeps at PUMA express their aim to ascend awesome vibes. This week sees the launch of a third-time alliance with premier sneaker collaborator Ronnie Fieg to create the freshest XT-2 upgrade yet, produced exclusively for the Dover Street Market. Fieg’s penchant for taking on iconic designs remains estimable and the new “Achromatic” collection must serve as authentication to his mastery. Y’all know I am all about the great legend that is PUMA’s XT-2 runner style sneaker.
This fresh and fittingly named shoe has me seriously wanting to shake this man’s hand because for the very first time in my life I am going crazy over a minimalist yet so steadily impactful product. I mean, being an activist of sorts for detail-mania; the concept of “no colour and no branding” could raise my brows a little, but in addition to an unquestionably chic approach, these are raging with such stunning details which instantaneously jab at my thing for statement pieces.
I think I might have actually shed a tear when studying the quality led sensibility.
Carefully considered pattern changes have allowed the co-collaborators to seamlessly replace typical TPU pieces with thick premium leathers which contribute to the project’s premium feel. Intricate detailing across the shoe sees an Italian glove leather upper combined with a supple calfskin leather lining, complete with quilted detailing.
Such a bummer that the PUMA x Ronnie Fieg for Dover Street Market XT-2 will not be available in stores here in SA, but you can totally get them online HERE (they’re practically almost sold out –that’s not surprising really)and for more info, do check out www.puma.com
I cannot get over the all white situation. Like, I simply cannot.
