Nanmika waterproof puma suede using VTG Gore-Tex fabric

Nanmika, who is famous for being behind The North Face Purple label, has only received a handful of footwear collaborations over the years.But later this August, the Japanese label will once again enter the world of sneakers courtesy of PUMA and their much-loved suede vtg,

“For our first collaboration with Nainamika, we wanted to create something that was immediately recognizable as a partnership between the two brands,” said Ayesha Atlee, Head of Design Sportsstyle Footwear for Puma.“We decided to take advantage of the timeless design of Puma suede, mixing it with neutral samples from Nanamica and their use of signature Gore-Tex fabrics as needed to complete our vision.”

Similar to the Japanese label’s previous partnerships, the Nanmika x PUMA Suede takes advantage of the silhouette’s timeless design.Save for the material itself, very little has changed about the shoe.Gore-Tex fabrics, however, are a welcome and massive upgrade, as they line the premium suede used throughout the upper.Matching flat laces complement the two monochromatic colors with adjacent, brown or navy hues.

Complete with co-branding in sockliner and tongue, Nanmika’s latest sneaker collab is expected to be released at select retailers and likely on August 27th nanamica.com,
