Sporting brand PUMA has officially joined forces with footwear label Filling Pieces, renowned for their ability to merge influences of streetwear with high-end fashion aesthetics, for a new silhouette blending both athletic and luxury footwear design, reinventing PUMA’s Blaze of Glory. In a modern footwear market shaken up by increasingly innovative big-name collaborations, the release of PUMA x Filling Pieces Blaze of Glory rockets both brands back into the contemporary conversation with a unique and innovative design.
Filling Pieces has deconstructed the iconic PUMA Blaze of Glory and set about rebuilding it using the finest materials, highlighting their own attention to detail in order to create a truly luxurious, unique incarnation of the well-known style. Offering a single colourway of matte black, with a fresh white sole bolstered by the inclusion of Trinomic cushion technology.
What has resulted from the extraordinary pairing is a fusion of the clean and modern identity of Filling Pieces with the iconic sports aesthetic from PUMA, showcased in a video lookbook featuring model Dilone, as photographed by Fabien Montique. Available now from Filling Pieces, and expected to be available from handpicked top PUMA retailers such as Dover Street Market London, Tres Bien, Ssense and Sneakerboy from July 3o, witness the PUMA x Filling Pieces Blaze of Glory in the gallery above.
