Puma TSUGI Shinsei Cubism History

Puma has been on top of the shoe game when it came to innovative designs. From the Velcro-strapped shoe in 1968 to ditching shoelaces with the Puma Disc in 1991, Puma has always been a trailblazer in the sneaker design realm.

In 2017, Puma once again ups the ante by introducing a pair that combines German and Japanese technology and influence called the Puma TSUGI Shinsei. Created by the Puma design team led by Puma Sportstyle creative director Heiko Desens, the shoe aims to reintroduce the brand's footwear in a new and more modern light.

Aptly named, Tsugi means "next" while Shinsei means "rebirth," signifying the vision of growth behind Puma's newest offerings. Not long after, the brand debuted an iteration called the Puma TSUGI Shinsei Cubism that is inspired by the art movement from the early 90s called Cubism that abandoned all rules of perspective. It was released in two colorways both with a pop of color.
