In 2017, Puma introduced a low-top silhouette called the Puma Breaker. It took inspiration from one of the most iconic kicks of all time, the Puma Suede. The Breaker model took the classic silhouette and upgraded it with inspirations from the punk scene of London and New York. Puma partnered with music artist Big Sean and New York street artist DAIN in promoting the sneaker.
Since then, the shoe has been released in different iterations, featuring a similar design but with different materials and tweaks. Among the models from the Puma Breaker collection are the Puma Breaker Hi Gum sneakers. They elevate the collar to a mid-cut design while introducing various elements to update the silhouette.
Additionally, this model is the gum outsole version of the Puma Breaker Hi. As a leather sneaker-boot hybrid, this shoe goes to the next level when it comes to futuristic design. It combines the best of sports and fashion to create a winter-ready sneaker that doesn’t let the wearer down.
