Puma Classic Suede “Takumi”
Puma Japan issued ‘Takumi’-edition Ralph Sampson and Sky II hightops earlier this year, a couple of premium quality designs whose name and mysterious origins had some thinking they were crafted by the next big fashion designer. But if you break out your copy of Rosetta Stone, you’ll find that ‘takumi’ is the Japanese word for ‘artisan’, as in the attention lavished on these new Puma Suede lowtops set to arrive in September. Red/black and black/royal pairs have been treated to minor adjustments like a narrower sole, thicker suede and premium leather uppers along with a compact toebox whose merits you can discuss after seeing more photos below.
