Well known for his sculptures, Hong Kong-based artist Michael Lau is soon to take his creative style over to Puma, the brand inviting him to design atop the frame of the iconic Puma Suede.
Part of a string of collaborations, which spans nostalgic takes by Nintendo and neon-tinged colorways by Mirage Mox, the release will likely arrive later this month despite the playfully written sample hangtag. As it draws inspiration from Lau’s personal work, the colorway leads with a bold, auspicious reds, its shade constantly alternating between dark and light as it dresses throughout the upper. Alongside, certain panels — like the tongue label, eye stay, and side logo — bear a jagged edge in homage to the “Worth Cat” that stands proud on the shelves of its designer.
Grab a detailed look at these right here and sit tight as they’re expected to arrive on December 22nd.
