FIVE TECHY TRAINERS
By Chris Sayer, 17 July 2017
We all know the simple pleasures of a classic pair of sneaks – your Chuck Taylors, your Stan Smiths. Minimalist designs that have barely changed since the year dot. However, some of the hottest names in the footwear game right now are moving in a different direction by going big on techy brilliance and future thinking. Here are five trainers tricked-out with features plucked straight from tomorrow’s world…
PUMA Tsugi Shinsei
They’re striking on the eye, kitted out with a knitted sock-like upper, asymmetrical side lacing, a really tasty logo-ed elastic heel gore, and an all-round design that's inspired by Japanese architecture. But just like mama used to say, it’s what’s inside that counts. And inside is stuffed with PUMA’s Ignite Foam for some sole-saving cushioning.
