British designer Alexander McQueen is bringing its famed punk-rock aesthetic to a mid sneaker by PUMA for the footwear label’s 2012 fall/winter catalog. Aptly called the “Joust Mid,” the shoe culls design inspiration from the sights and sensations of a medieval battlefield. The rubber soles are proof of this, designed to look like the chainmail worn by knights of the period. The shoe comes in three color offerings: rust, silver metallic and moonless night. Three additional material options are also presented in the leathers used for the shoe’s upper with pony skin, metallic leather, and a softer ‘glove’-like leather. Although the Joust Mid is expected for an August delivery, the shoe will be produced in very limited quantities, so get your pre-order in exclusively at Barcelona sneaker boutique sivasdescalzo.com where retail is slated for €340 EUR (approximately $427 USD).
