KICKS: Nike Releases Its Most Garish Christmas Pack/ adidas Originals Stan Smith "Onix"/ Stussy x Nike Air Max 95 Pack/ PUMA Blaze "Croc Hunter" Pack / NEIGHBORHOOD Lodge CL-Boots
With the year coming to a close, PUMA unveils a glimpse to what it has installed for next year, presenting the “Croc Hunter” pack for Spring/Summer 2016. Reworking the iconic running silhouette, Blaze, the sneaker takes inspiration from Blaze of Glory, rehashed to include a fold over tongue to complement a bold Formstrip across the lateral vamp, accented with a light air mesh alongside leather overlays. Constructed from premium croc embossed leather, the upper sits atop a Trinomic sole, providing contrasting riffs and an athletic finish. Available in black and white, the PUMA Blaze “Croc Hunter” Pack drops soon in-store & online from select retailers such as size? and Foot Patrol for £100 GBP (approximately $151 USD).
Japanese cult label NEIGHBORHOOD re-imagines the classic duck boot as luxe footwear this season. Taking the function-oriented silhouette, which was originally used by hunters to wade through marshes, NEIGHBORHOOD has crafted the boot from smooth cowhide with suede accents, with detailing such as contrast stitching, natural storm welt, aged brass hardware and leather laces. Safe to say you may not be using these in any hunting-related activities any time soon. Now available for a reasonable $700 USD online from HAVEN.
