First teased on the runway at New York Fashion Week in 2021, the new collection blurs the lines between fashion and sport by offering athleisure styles, including apparel and footwear, with luxury details. 

In particular, the collection reinvents Puma’s most popular footwear silhouettes, such as the Kosmo Rider and the RS-X. Smith’s designer take on the Kosmo Rider silhouette includes the addition of metallic-silver details and a patterned upper that brings a unique look to catch the eye.

Likewise, the luxurious take on the RS-X features a metallic lace lock and Formstrip that pop against a sleek and chic all-black upper. Completing the collection is apparel including elevated essentials like tees and leggings, as well as a new take on corset tops and body suits characterized by metallic detailing, sharp lines, and mixed materials.

Smith debuted his brand in 2013 and has since been met with widespread success, gaining critical acclaim for its distinctive garments and details.

Collection pieces retail from $60-$120. It is available now exclusively at select Foot Locker stores and on FootLocker.com, and will be available on Puma.com.
