Before Alexander McQueen's untimely passing on February 18, 2010, he won British Designer of the Year four times. Today, his provocative brand is still thriving in many ways, like the collaboration with footwear giant Puma. Known as "couture sneakers", the Puma by Alexander McQueen collection features a contemporary lineup of high-end sneakers that are "conceptually sophisticated, powerful and intricately crafted". They combine tradition and technology, and elevate casual athletic footwear to a new level by fusing quality materials and sophisticated design. Admittedly, the Puma x Alexander McQueen collection is not for everyone. But, if you are a discerning footwear enthusiast, the collection is perfect for you.
