For this heightened silhouette, “Moe Dee” and Puma engineer the upper half in a louder yellow hue that is built with mesh underlay and a blend of leather, suede and synthetic materials layered on top. Various textures are visible on the base including that of the ventilated holes on the eyestays, as well as the puffer-like padded panels and perforated suedes which arrive on the medial wall.

Branding is present via RS and Puma hits printed down the tongue tabs and footbeds, in addition to the cloud shapes that house a “dreamer” spell out affixed to the heels.
To announce the shoes, the two parties playfully reimagined the 2014 Forest Hills Drive album cover art by showing the artist posted up on the roof while rockin’ the kicks.
The DREAMER 2 retails for $135 and will be available at the PUMA NYC Flagship Store, PUMA’s website, through Foot Locker family websites and select stockists worldwide on January 28 which happens to be J. Cole‘s birthday.
