Puma has teamed up with Japanese fashion designer Mihara Yasuhiro for this unique and eye-catching design. The Puma MY Tennis Union Jack is available in low and mid models, and features two drastically different portions. The front half of the sneaker resembles a Puma Suede with Union Jack colorway. But, in quirky fashion, the back half of the sneaker has a completely juxtapose design (including the midsole), and features metallic silver tumbled leather. The severe difference in colors, materials, and design being played out in one sneaker definitely enables the Puma MY Tennis Union Jack to set itself apart from the crowd. If you are looking for a sneaker that demands attention, look no further than this Puma x Mihara Yasuhiro collaboration.

The latest lightweight trainer on the market is the PUMAgility from Puma. Constructed with a simple and sleek mesh upper, this trainer provides maximum breathability and ventilation. But, what really makes the PUMAgility stand out from the crowd is the midsole. The unique pyramidal midsole is made from ultra lightweight foam that compresses on impact and widens at the base, so you can enjoy superior cushioning and stability. Puma also designed the outsole with flex grooves for enhanced lateral movement. Look for the PUMAgility now in multiple colorways.

Puma and sneaker store/brand Undefeated have teamed up once again on a sneaker that has undeniable appeal. The Puma Clyde X Undefeated Luxe is a contemporary take on the classic Puma Clyde, the signature sneaker for the always stylish Clyde Frasier. The first difference you'll notice on this design from the original Clyde is the removal of the Puma Formstripe, which is how they got the nickname, the "Stripe Off." But, the differences don't stop there. They also feature a leather tongue tag with an embossed Undefeated logo, gold Puma Clyde text on the side of the heel, and a contrasting leather accent piece on the back heel. The Puma Clyde X Undefeated Luxe is available in 4 colorways, including White, Gray, Black and Forest. Find the entire colorful collection at Sneakerhead.com.

Redesigns of classics in the sneaker world have been mocked, criticized, and sometimes, adorned. Yet, it's hard to tell what causes each response. In the case of the Puma Sky High Plus, a redesign of the classic Puma basketball sneaker from the 80s, I think it's safe to say they will be accepted. Available in several fresh tonal colorways, they retain many of the same design elements of their predecessor, the Puma Sky High II, but also some modifications. The Puma Sky High Plus sports an ultra high tongue, large adjustable hook-and-loop strap, and a vulcanized sole. These design changes transform a retro basketball sneaker into a contemporary lifestyle sneaker that's versatile and fashionable. So, what color are you gonna cop?

The PUMA 917 Lo Su-Pa lifestyle shoe is a retro-styled sneaker inspired by an unconventional combination: video games, motorsports, and the Porsche 917 race car. The low top, rubber-soled shoe displays a Black/White canvas upper covered by a black/white/burnt orange/light blue screen print design intended to resemble the 8-bit video game graphics of the 1980s. This lifestyle shoe colorway also reflects the paint scheme of the Porsche 917. The mildly pixelated print substitutes for a standard eye-stay, as well as for Puma's medial/lateral sidebar logo, toe cap, and leaping Puma logo at the heel. A game graphic brick wall print fabric serves as the sock liner. Underfoot, a racing-influenced tire tread rubber provides low profile traction.
