Puma has been working with Japanese fashion designer Mihara Yasuhiro for quite some time now and here is their latest work. They have two different collections completed and each collection takes inspiration from different elements that makes each unique. First is the ROCK ON S/S 07 collection, Mihara takes inspiration from Heavy Metal and incorporates it to make the MY-25 Metallic Gold High Top Boots and the MY-24 Metal Trainer. Both shoes are done in shinning colors and have tons of elements mixed with great detailing. The second collection is called OOPARTS which stands for Out of Place Artefacts and is also for S/S 07. The concept behind this collection came from a story about a well-known archeologist, who made a discovery and found what looked like a modern day sneaker embedded in an ancient rock, this sneaker was very similar to a sport shoe we wear today. Mihara took this idea and created this collection with the MY-1 Peace, MY-9 Love, MY-25, and a Carry All bag.
