The UEG x PUMA Court Play Slip-On has a strong space program theme. The Polish brand takes inspiration from astronaut equipment for the colab; producing a lightweight slip-on in a mix of technically advanced textiles. The sneaker is predominantly made up in black mesh with a welded tonal form-stripe sitting tight against the sides. The silhouette's white vulc sole is punctuated with extended angular overlays and is printed with information, like ‘GRAVITY RESISTANT’, that’s not too hard to envision running across technical equipment. The Space Program theme isn’t new territory for sneaker themes, take Tom Sachs’s Nike Mars Yard Shoe as an example, yet UEG’s interpretation looks fresh.
The UEG x PUMA Court Play Slip-On is available now from Coutié.
