The design direction for the tie-up between Puma and Sneaker Freaker was not just plucked out of thin air at whim for a pair of fierce kicks. It was inspired by a real-life incident of an abalone diver that survived a Great White shark attack. With that gory episode in mind, the first in three Trinomic Blaze of Glory models of the collaboration was created in 2008, and the Blaze of Glory Bloodbath sneakers are the third drop from Puma x Sneaker Freaker.
There's no points for guessing that the latest design follows in the footsteps of its shark-themed predecessors — a blood-red body, sharkbite motif on the tongue and seafoam detailing are brought to life by black plastic 'eyes' on the sides of the shoe. The underside of the Bloodbath sneakers mimic a stream of blood oozing from the shoe's Trinomic hexagon cells, and are finished off with realistic rubber fangs.
