PUMA Crafts a Japanese-Made Suede With KICKS LAB. & 81 Bastards

For its latest co-branded endeavor, Japan's KICKS LAB. is following up its "Hikeshi Hanten" rendition of the ASICS GEL-Lyte III and has tapped art collective 81 Bastards for a special take on the tried-and-true PUMA Suede. A nod to zen and the Japanese aesthetic concept of iki, the kicks employ premium leather and suede construction and couple a classic black suede upper and gum sole with custom art and graphics on the formstripes, footbeds and heels.

Expect these to touch down at KICKS LAB....
