There is something of collaborative forces that draws a desire to the products to be something more intensive, more impulsive to want and many sneakerheads will know the unforgiving fall to the temptations of, pursue and purchase the must haves. Moving forward with the seasons, footwear particularly sportswear are mercilessly stocking up all they can in mixtures of models, colours, patterns and materials; one of particular popularity is Suede.

Low top Puma classics have come around to the spotlight in tough demands among  retail stores and the huge difference between getting what everybody else wants is to trap and snatch other alternatives of the same models. Puma went further to work in partnership with Japanese sneaker store KICKS LAB on a reasonably eye-catching pair. The shoe itself features a rich colour tone of black in suede on the upper construction and is lifted on a platform of vibrant yellow rubber sole rather than white or the risk of ‘vintage’ off white. The benefit of this edition is the tough durable military CORDURA fabric on the camouflage riding in place of the standard stripes. Another is the leather inner lining of the shoe and all the usual positions of logo branding mainly the tongue, the heel and body have all been polished in none other than gold.

Altogether the sneaker sets a general dark masculine quality and locks it look towards predominantly dim outfits. Make a shoe like this your look’s main priority and wear the champion of outfits; all black everything. Designed to be seen with its yellow sole, this isn’t an everyday pair of kicks but something to wear eventfully especially for warmer days. Set to release May 2013 they are unfortunately limited to 300 pairs made available in selected stores and online. These must haves are going to be hard to find.
