Everyone knows “carpe diem,” the Latin exhortation to “seize the day” by making the most of the time and opportunities immediately in front of you. “Carpe noctem” is the same advice, after dark.
Most instances of seizing the night start off with the right outfit, and there’s no right outfit without the right footwear, which is where Puma and streetwear fashion fixture En Noir come in.
Two Puma silhouettes, the iconic Clyde and the modern athletic Ignite evoKNIT trainer combine the sleekness of a total color blackout with the ostentatious, classical fashion influences of En Noir. The Clyde takes the subtle route, with a pebbled nubuck upper, tonal Fleur-de-lis heel logo, and glossy co-branding. The evoKNIT makes full use of its textile upper, which sports a tonal, all-over Fleur-de-lis pattern, gothic script “noctem” text on the ankle collar, and co-branding across the shoe’s nylon strap caging.
