Kicks Worth Pouncing On

Bring the heat and up your sneaker game with the latest PUMA collaborations

Superbalist Sneakers of the Week

Listen to us when we say: don’t sleep on PUMA. The German brand is synonymous with performance wear and outstanding running shoes but over the past few years, they’ve been making a mark in the athleisure market too. Thanks to collaborations with superstars like Rihanna and record-breaker Usain Bolt, they’ve managed to secure a spot with their sneakers and athleisure gear. Here are some big drops to cop now before the sell out.

Inspired by surfing and motocross gear, the Fenty x Puma S/S 2018 collection is as ambitious and eye-catching as you’d expect. These kicks feature a cut-out upper, bungee-style lacing and a standout pastel colourway that’ll complement any monochromatic outfit. They’re made for pairing with sweats, so elevate your off-duty look with a matching tracksuit.

For those who love a simpler aesthetic, try out the black and off-white rendition. Its red accents add a vibrant touch, but the unique silhouette is still the star. Brighten things up by team a pair with a metallic pleated skirt and and baggy knit or graphic sweatshirt. Those small 90s sunglasses? Also a necessity for completing the look.
