The idea behind the Puma States is something like releasing the Air Force 1 as ‘Nike Uptown’, a nod to the street-level awareness that made this shoe a UK legend over the past half-century. It turns out to also be a hint at the state of the (lifestyle-oriented) sneaker game as well, as we see the latest round of lowtop Suedes adopt a trend whose synchronicity with the coming Chinese Zodiac suggests perfect timing on an intergalactic level. The Solebox x Puma States apply snakeskin Formstripes to sand, black and grey uppers, and a mere 100 pairs of each will be released in celebration of the Berlin boutique’s 10th birthday. Check out more shots after the jump, let us know which pair stands out from the bunch and stick with Sneaker News for release info.
