There’s always something to be said for going against the grain. Even if it doesn’t work out, at least you weren’t playing it safe. There’s very little playing it safe going on with the Fenty label’s latest release for Puma, the Leadcat.
Minimalism and functionality are very in right now, obviously. The slide sandal is minimal and functional to its core. What better way is there to introduce a dash of purely stylistic flair to this scene than to twist this icon of simplicity?
The natural counterpoint to pure functionality is luxury. The roots of the word luxury can be found in Latin and Middle English words for ‘extravagant.’ Although we usually think of this extravagance purely in terms of money, the very act of adding something more than strictly necessary is extravagant. To that end, the Leadcat features impractical, purely stylistic, faux-fur and satin on the sandal’s upper strap.
Besides, if you want to get really philosophical about it, there’s arguably no better use for functionality than finding a way to be comfortable and fashionable at the same time.
