The Weeknd is getting his feet into the fashion game with his collaboration with PUMA! They recently revealed his first signature set of kicks called the “Parallel”! These joints come in 3 different colorway options, olive, white, and grey and their design is inspired by traditional military boots. The kicks look pretty fresh and appear to have thick sole, perfect for flat pedal riders who don’t like to feel all the pins in their pedals 😉
The Weeknd and Puma also has an accompanying streetwear apparel collection to go with the kicks consisting of t-shirts, denim jackets and pants, pretty fresh!
“Parallel” is set to drop this Fall, be on the look out!

The Heel is where you can find the faces of some of the most popular animals in the Pokedex, Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur.

About Just Cavalli x Xena “Graffiti” Sneakers:
“From city walls to sneakers – Just Cavalli challenges six street artists to create six representative walls of the brand world, Fatima de Juan’s spray (stage name Xena) won and met the Just Cavalli Spring Summer 2018 collection with the creation of the GRAFFITI SNEAKERS.
Fatima, originally from Palma de Mallorca, loves to combine fashion and graffiti, is inspired by the New York scene of the late ’70s and by comics. Against the black background of the GRAFFITI SNEAKERS, the bright colours of a strong and decided female figure stand out. The figure is flanked by a snake, symbol of the brand reinterpreted in a pop key.
The sneaker is the result of a mixture of values: the street, the underground culture and transgression, that are increasingly strong values for the Millenials and Z generations, who were asked to vote on the official @justcavalli_official profile for the strongest artwork of the six exposed to see it represented on the Limited Sneakers.”
