The Weeknd x PUMA

The Weeknd’s venture into fashion has seen Abel Tesfaye work with the likes of H&M – with whom a number of XO clothes will feature in their latest Fall/Winter collection. But right now, the musician’s collaboration with Puma has just dropped.

The collection releases in three parts, each differentiated by a unique aesthetic. The first drop is the first-ever PUMA x XO footwear – the PUMA Parallel – and that’s what is featured in this collection of images from the lookbook. Inspired by military and utilitarian gear, the all-new silhouette is a mid-cut sneaker boot that’s fully decked out in luxurious Italian nubuck leather upper. 

The sneaker is set to be given special treatment as, in the Netherlands, it will be exclusive to Patta’s Amsterdam store – the iconic streetwear shop that gives Abel’s new shoes the seal of approval. Online, the shoes created between this award winning artist and the legendary sportswear brand will be available worldwide from August 24.
