Alexander McQueen x PUMA 2012 Joust Mid $475
The most prominent from the AW12 collection, the Alexander McQueen Puma Joust sneaker is featured here in a Rust colourway, with a luxurious pony skin collapsible upper. The sole pattern references the chainmail of a medieval knight’s armour, while ribbing on the tongue and heel, combined with a substantial sole unit, add to the AW12 PUMA-McQueen theme of medieval warfare.
The Alexander McQueen Puma collaboration is part of Puma’s Black Label, which fuses sport functionality with high fashion. This season features a “Medieval Protection” theme, inspired by medieval warfare, protection armor and articulation. Its materials and colour palette represent burnished metals of chain mail, the earth of foreigh fields, and the rich hand dyed fabrics of tattered flags.
