Who doesn’t love a pair of classic Converse Chuck Taylors? After that, jump up the style ladder more than a few rungs with a pair of kicks that will make heads turn.
New this winter is Puma’s Urban Swift shoes, right, which look like motion in freeze frame. But once they’re on your feet and in motion, they’ll make you look like something out of a Flash comic.
The shoe is a collaboration with Puma and designer Hussein Chalayan in the Urban Mobility Collection. Puma clarifies that this is not an athletic shoe, per se, but another in a long, venerable line of casual sneakers. $275 at puma.com.
