The PUMA Slipstream has long reigned over the high-collared kingdom with its colossal style and rip-roaring swagger. It was originally issued in 1988 with modest yet crisp varsity colors and loomed large in sneaker circles around the world. In 2002, it joined the ranks of Japanese monster lore as the Slipstream Beast with animal prints, plush, leather, fur – claiming material play and Tokyo as its stomping grounds. This nearly-all-new silhouette holds fast to its original hexagon tread pattern. But that's about it. This version mixes and mashes reimagined angles, mixed materials, and a lightweight bottom that features tech swiped from our running collection.
