Puma just debuted their Bharrington Mid, a fairly rugged sneaker-boot whose distinctive eyestay reminds us of the ’90s basketball-inspired Supra Skytop III. But a closer look in the context of this new drop reveals they both have a closer source to draw upon, as a new Alexander McQueen collabo makes the Slipstream similarities more obvious. The new Alexander McQueen x Puma Montapon Luxe has a similar overall look to the Bharrington: black leather, hightop silhouette, orange sockliner; but this Montapon opts for a plaid ankle collar where its cousin used a more modern geometric print, which gives the former a more traditional woodsy vibe. Sneaker brands are taking boots very seriously this year, and this new style from Puma is available now at select retailers like Kith.
