What happens when you merge streetwear and luxury in a pair of sneakers? You get Puma x Filling Pieces

Puma is back at it with another collaboration — this time with contemporary footwear label Filling Pieces. Recognised for their high-end and streetwear fusions, the Amsterdam-based brand has come up with a luxurious rendition of the Puma Blaze of Glory.

Given their background in architecture, their approach to this collaboration comes as no surprise — the  Dutch designers went back to the basics by disassembling then reconstructing the design, putting a spin on the quintessential Puma silhouette. Revamped with a modern update, the sneaker features a wide elastic strapped across the vamp. Complete with a monochrome palette, the shoe is rendered in matte black nubuck along with a stark white sole. For that touch of Filling Pieces, attention to detail is evident with its rose-gold aglets and perforated panelling. And as with any of the brand's collaboration, you can rest assured these sneaks are engineered with top-notch Trinomic cushion technology, making it just as functional as it is stylish. 

The PUMA x Filling Pieces drop is an exclusive drop with 45 pairs available only at Limited Edition stores from today.
