PUMA has linked up an international king of style to drop the latest limited-edition PUMA Suede.
PUMA have called upon the services of Motofumi “Poggy” Kogi – director of Japan's most influential fashion boutique, UNITED ARROW & SONS – to craft a unique PUMA Suede inspired by the coolest edges of Japanese culture.
Poggy's expertise of combining various genres with an overwhelming sense of design and deep meaning gives a luxe edge to his PUMA Suede. The PUMA x POGGYTHEMAN Suede is reimagined in the tradition of Japanese tabi socks, including a fully knitted indigo blue sock with Suede panels on the side and elastic band on the forefoot.
The Suede also includes traditional Japanese funcitonal design, with Poggy refreshing the Suede’s standard closure system with a Kohaze, a traditional Japanese hook, to make it look more streamlined.
The sneaker is dropping as part of a capsule between PUMA and Poggy. Also getting a release is the black T7 full-zip track jacket with matching T7 track pants, a retro-inspired suit that features traditional "Sashiko" Japanese weaving. The pack comes full circle with a clean PUMA x POGGY logo tee.
The Suede 50 PUMA x POGGYTHEMAN collection is available on September 15th from puma.com. Follow @PUMASportstyle for all Suede 50 updates and check #ForAllTime to keep up with the conversation.
