What really makes this collaboration a creative one is the addition of letters that you can place anywhere on the velrco covered upper. Are you diggin’ this new look?

I’d be too worried about losing a letter every time I wear them. It’s a cool concept, but just not something I’d tend to usually go for.

Another Look At The Colorful GraphersRock x PUMA Disc Blaze

GRAPHERSROCK X PUMA DISC 5 GRAPHERSROCK X PUMA DISC 6 GRAPHERSROCK X PUMA DISC 7 GRAPHERSROCK X PUMA DISC 8

After giving you a closer look at the Black pair from the GraphersRock x PUMA Disc Blaze collaboration, we now get a closer look at the 2nd pair that completes the collection.

This colorway is essentially the opposite of the black pair as we see the PUMA Disc Blaze covered in a predominantly White upper. Serving as a contrast are bright hits of color that land on the midsole, side panels, heel and inner liner. Additional details include eye-catching printed pictograms and typographies on the side panels and midsole. This Disc Blaze also comes with the traditional Trinomic midsole for that premium comfort.

If you haven’t already, you can still cop a pair now at select PUMA retailers for a retail price of $180.

In comparison to the black pair, this is definitely the one that catches your attention with its South Beach vibes. It’s a little too bright for my liking though.

Pretty cool project from GraphersRock and PUMA. I like this black pair better than its colorful counterpart because it can be worn much easier.

PUMA is ready to join knit sneaker craze with the all-new PUMA Blaze Knit.

With Nike and adidas dominating knit sneakers with their Flyknit and Primeknit technology, respectively, PUMA has now created their own knitted shoe with the PUMA Blaze Knit. This new silhouette resembles the PUMA Blaze of Glory but with a new upper and new lacing system.

Scheduled to arrive in the US in the three different colorways that you see above later this Summer, what are your thoughts on the brand new upcoming PUMA Blaze Knit?

Author’s Take

I’m a fan of the Blaze of Glory so the fact that this Blaze Knit looks pretty similar is a good thing. I’m curious to find out how that knit upper feels like.

What Are Your Thoughts On The $200 Puma x McQ Tech Runner Sandal

PUMA x McQ Tech Runner Sandal 1 PUMA x McQ Tech Runner Sandal 2

It’s for sure not a runner. I wouldn’t classify it as your traditional slide. To be honest, I have no idea what is, so bear with me as I try to dissect the Puma x McQ Tech Runner Sandal.

Puma and McQ link up to collaborate on one of their must “unique” looking creations. Said to be a part of their joint 2016 Spring/Summer campaign, the Tech Runner Sandals noted above have the look of the high-top sneaker, but when you take a look at the areas such as the forefoot, toe and ankle, you notice open regions you usually find on a sandal. The actual construction consists of an ankle collar made out of sports mesh material, while the rest of the Runner Sandal appears to be made out of a leather material. Dual branding is noted on the heel and tongue. Coming in Black / Red or White / Blue, the Puma x McQ Tech Runner Sandal is now up for grabs at select retailers for $200. What’s your honest opinion on the Runner Sandal? Let us know in the comments below.

I can’t pull these off. For starters, do I wear these before, during or after physical activity? I’m so lost right now…Yeah.

The McQ x Puma Disc Blaze Blue Is On The Way

PUMA MCQ DISC BLUE 1 PUMA MCQ DISC BLUE 2 PUMA MCQ DISC BLUE 3 PUMA MCQ DISC BLUE 4 PUMA MCQ DISC BLUE 5

This isn’t the first time that Alexander McQueen and Puma have collaborated on a Puma sneaker. As a matter of fact, this isn’t the first time that they’ve worked on the Disc Blaze. With that being said, let’s take a look at their latest collaboration, the McQ x Puma Disc Blaze Blue.

The fashion friendly model comes dressed in a Bright Blue neoprene base paired up with the Navy leather paneling. Adding some contrast to the shoe is the White leather placed on the midfoot which blends in nicely withe the speckled white midsole. Dual branding is also placed on the midfoot. Lastly, a Gold heel cage gives the model some additional color. Available internationally, we will let you know if/when these arrive stateside.

Author?s Take

For the most part, the Disc Blaze is not a model I tend to go for, but this version is something I actually like. The two shades of blue, the gold hits, the speckling, it all seems to work when you put them together.

News Flash: The Rihanna x Puma Fenty Fur Leadcat Slides Sold Out Real Quick

RIHANNA X PUMA FENTY FUR SLIDES  1 RIHANNA X PUMA FENTY FUR SLIDES  2 RIHANNA X PUMA FENTY FUR SLIDES  3 RIHANNA X PUMA FENTY FUR SLIDES  4

A few days ago, I went ahead and reminded all of you that the Rihanna x Puma Fenty Fur Leadcat Slides were about to release. I made it clear that I was unsure whether or not the slides would sell well. It turns out that not only did they sell well at $80 a pop, the slide managed to sell out!

During a time where price hikes are the focal point of sneakerhead conversations, a furry slide had no problem selling at a retail price of $80. I think it’s safe to say that Rihanna’s presence is all that Puma had hoped for and more! The slides dropped yesterday in three different colorways, and all three colorways managed to sell out, and they did so even faster than Rihanna x Puma Suede Creeper collaboration that released not too long ago. This Rihanna x Puma connection is off to a good start. As long as Rihanna stays poppin’, it looks like anything Puma releases in collaboration with her will be an instant hit! Were you one of the people who picked up a pair? Let us know in the comments below.

I’m curious to see if these will sell out just like the past two drops that Rihanaa was a part of. or $80, I’m not too sure, I guess we will have to wait and see.

Author’s Take

I wasn’t aware of the firm till now, but this execution is pretty sweet. Either pair is great for the season, but I’m leaning towards the more colorful pair.

The second pair goes for a much simpler look aa the Disc Blaze is covered in black from head to toe with white accents. Both pairs come with the traditional Trinomic midsole as well as Graphers Rock branding and graphics scattered throughout the shoe.

Author’s Take

You really can’t go wring with either pair. If you’re looking for attention you can rock the white and pink pair and you wanna be lowkey then the black option will help with that. Pretty cool project from Graphers Rock and PUMA.

Puma continues their collaborative ways, this time around they tag-team with Japanese creatives to create two special versions of the Puma Disc Blaze. Let’s take a detailed look at the Graphers Rock x Puma Disc Blaze.

Said to be inspired by 90s nostalgia and technology, both models don unique branding/logos/labels all over the shoe in areas such as the Trinomic outsole unit to the plastic supportive overlay. The first pair comes in all-black accented by the white accents placed throughout, while the second pair comes in Grey/White offset by hits of teal, black, pink and blue. Subtle or colorful, what’s it gonna be? Whatever you decide, you can now pick up a pair at select retailers for $180.

Author’s Take

Not a huge fan of the model, but the Grey and White pair with the colorful hits looks to be a clean shoe for the Spring. The only thing stopping me from getting a pair is the $180 price tag.
