PUMA x Crossover Velvet Twin Pack “Mystery”

Hot on the heels of last month’s PUMA x Crossover Velvet Twin Pack “Roses” release is a follow-up that puts a dark twist on the Disc Blaze.

The second sneaker in the PUMA x Crossover Velvet Twin Pack uses the iconic Disc Blaze and is aptly themed “Mystery”.

Like the Blaze of Glory “Roses” from last month, this sneaker is also inspired by David Lynch’s “Blue Velvet” neo-noir mystery film, specifically its antagonist character, Frank Booth.

Booth’s near-fatal stroke in the movie and his subsequent use of an oxygen mask has been translated into a see-through disc cap on the Disc Blaze. The pitch black upper is constructed from mesh, nubuck and suede, taking references from the character’s dark personality.

A white speckled disc cage is a nod to the little shred of goodness left in Booth’s twisted persona, and a dash of pink at the heel tab is both a representation of Booth’s unpredictable behavior and a nod to Crossover’s color.

Priced at RM630, the PUMA x Crossover Velvet Twin Pack “Mystery” will be releasing at all Crossover stores on May 7th.
