The training shoe is made with performance in mind, but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking in style. The shape is similar to the chunky dad shoes that the fashion industry is currently obsessed with, but it’s sleek and lightweight, making it ideal for any kind of workout. The textured, bootie-style upper in black has a slip-on construction with contrasting white TPU panels throughout offering additional support. Straps across the midfoot and metallic gold branding on tongue and the golden buckle detailing bring a luxe, trend-led feel to the shoe. Completing the look is a bold white and gum midsole that’s fitted with PROFOAM for a comfy and cushioned fit. Discussing the DEFY Mid, Gomez said:
“The design of this shoe is great for training as well as everyday use. PUMA is always pushing the boundaries of mixing performance and style. On the new DEFY, I love the bootie-cut and the golden buckle accessory.”
