Just when I thought I owned enough sneakers to last me a lifetime (or at least the year), pics of this gold member just had to arrive in my inbox. Now, I have no choice but to make room for this beaut from sportswear label PUMA’s and celebrated New York creative, Vashtie Kola’s second collab.
Drawing inspiration from street and soccer wear, Vashtie has taken PUMA’s classic R698 Trinomic and given it an uber luxe chrome makeover. The shoe’s upper has been repainted metallic liquid gold, a nice contrast upon PUMA’s trademark all black Trinomic sole. I can already think of the many ways this pair of sneakers will fit right into my wardrobe. Put it this way, I bet even CP3O would be jelly.
The PUMA R698 X Vashtie Gold will be available at Limited Edt and Leftfoot stores from 4th July onwards at the retail price of SGD210.
