Object of Desire: Puma x Kicks Lab Suede “Nishijin”

If you love the floral patterns found on kimonos as much as you love your kicks, these shoes are definitely for you.

What: Puma x Kicks Lab Suede “Nishijin”
Inspired by Japan’s tradition of fine textile weaving, the Puma x Kicks Lab Suede “Nishijin” is made using Japanese artisanal techniques and sees a delicate kimono fabric with floral pattern making up the formstrip. Lush suede leather makes up the rest of the upper and the shoes are available in gold and silver colorways.
What else:
The shoe pays homage to Nishijin, a district in Kyoto that’s famous for intricately crafted kimonos. No surprise then, that these beautiful kicks are made in Japan. 
The Puma x Kicks Lab Suede “Nishijin” is available exclusively at Leftfoot stores for S$249.
