PUMA has partnered with one of London's most renowned sneaker stores, Footpatrol, to develop and launch the exclusive Tsugi Shinsei Footpatrol silhouette.
Since 2002, Footpatrol has offered a diverse choice of exclusive and rare sneakers, alongside classic styles. For every sneakerhead, the store has provided an impactful sales location due to the success of their collaboration with some of the biggest brands in the industry.
PUMA's Tsugi silhouette combines unconventional design elements to create a futuristic shape with several clever details. Each element of this shoe lends itself to styles Japanese name - Tsugi (next), Shinsei (reborn), and Sashiko (a form of Japanese decorative stitching).
The decorative stitching used across the upper reinforces key structural points of the shoe while providing an interesting, artistic design approach.
Finished in two colours - Olive and Ivory - the shoe features premium grain leather, nubuck, and a cotton weave upper with a knitted inner sock. The tongue and quarter panels are embroidered and laser-etched with a Japanese Shasiko pattern, and the classic Footpatrol 'Gas Mask' logo embossed on the rear of the heel. Laces are toggled with coloured beads, with the shoe sitting on an earthy rubber outsole.
The Tsugi Shinsei Sashiko is available from December 8th exclusively from Footpatrol.
