In a long-awaited return to the sneaker scene, PUMA’s noughties-favorite Mostro has finally dropped in a new two-part pack. The reissue comes off the back of Ottolinger’s experimental take on the silhouette last October as well as several glimpses of the latest pack being worn by A$AP Rocky, Skepta and other high-profile artists over the last few months.

Making its debut at the turn of the millennium, the cutting-edge silhouette initially offered a reprieve from the declining trends of the chunky platform kick and high-top basketball sneaker. Like its Italian-derived name, meaning “monster,” it took on an unconventional shape with sleek lines and panels of sprinting spikes enveloping the edges.

While previous iterations of the sneaker have landed in soft suede, textile and most famously, leather, the newest editions adopt a fine mesh upper and a lycra lining. This comfort-focused construction extends to the elastic strap closure, giving wearers a secure yet flexible fit. Keeping the look of the Mostro pared back, the trademark Formstrip features on the lateral with little detailing or decoration elsewhere on its body, similar to the original.

To celebrate the return of the classic silhouette, the brand teams up with photographer Chris Maggio who captures the Mostro on the feet of two unique city dwellers. Like the revival of the sneaker, these individuals are said to be “thawed out” after 25 years in a cryogenic slumber. Together, the bold sneaker adorned by the streetwear-savvy monster and a decked-out tourist make their bold re-entry in the city of New York.

Take a closer look at the new pack in the campaign featured above.

Shop the new PUMA Mostro sneakers in light gray and yellow from January 13 at select partner retailers including END. and LN-CC.
