Retro meets modern
Nothing beats a good old pair of classic sneakers. Timeless and totally iconic, PUMA’s Suede Classic XXI is making its grand comeback!
The signature suede low-top silhouette features a full suede upper as a much-needed touch for the cooler months. Ever since the style debuted in 1968, it’s been a game-changing pair ever since. The classic silhouette has been seen on fashion icons of every generation. This year’s installment is reinterpreted by local singer MC Cheung. The clean lines are complemented by the signature stripes of yet another iconic piece – the T7 Men’s Track Jacket and Pants. Not to mention, the black and white combo streamlines the entire look.
Anime lovers rejoice
Fan-favorite characters from Japanese manga series One Piece are back! First launched in 2019, SKETCHERS’ collaboration with One Piece has been one of the most highly sought-after collections and this year’s will be no exception.
The Global Jogger, Stamina V2, and D’Lites 4.0 collections are reimagined with instantly recognizable colorways inspired by the four main characters from the anime, namely Luffy, Zoro, Sanji, and Usopp.
With the resemblance of a chunky dad shoe, the D’Lites 4.0 Lace Up Jogger features air-cooled memory foam insoles to provide your feet with a snug, supportive fit. The revamped Stamina V2 in green, meanwhile, absorbs impact with high-rebound cushioning.
Loaded with modern zeitgeist and edgy stylishness, KENCY by GEOX features a cream and light taupe colorway to go with any color palette. The slight neutral take does not compromise any fashion impact though, as it sits atop a bold, elevated outsole for a height boost.
For those who love the colorway but in a more understated take, go for TABELYA, a casual-chic iteration that can be transitioned into your spring wardrobe effortlessly. Both equally comfortable to walk in, thanks to the outstanding cushioning effect by GEOX, you just can’t go wrong with either pair!
