Introduced in partnership with creative director Skepta, the PUMA Velophasis is the latest addition to the brand’s extensive lineup of footwear. This collaboration with London-based retailer Footpatrol is the shoe’s first collaborative iteration, and it aims to respond to the ongoing trend of “Dad shoes” with its mesh-dominated silhouette and chunky sole unit.
Paying tribute to the Y2K fashion trend, the collaboration combines various styles, ranging from sleek to daring, on the nostalgic-infused Velophasis silhouette. With a blend of futuristic design choices and modern runner elements, the shoe represents a hybrid of decades, featuring reflective silver underlays. The upper of the shoe is constructed using translucent materials, while the plush gel-branded heel logos bring to mind the inflatable furniture craze of the early 2000s.
The Footpatrol x PUMA Velophasis collaboration is set to release exclusively at Footpatrol in-store and online on December 2nd. The available sizes range from UK4 to UK12, and the retail price is £140. Take a look at the official images below to get a better idea of the design.
In other collaborative news, it seems that Travis Scott may have another Air Jordan 1 Low in the works for 2024. Stay tuned for more updates on that front.
