Gift shopping can be tough, especially for the man who already has it all. Add to that list a guy who appreciates fast cars, keeping fit, and good design, and you’ll realise it’s near impossible to find the perfect gift. Porsche Design and Puma, however, have just the solution for you.
A seamless blend of style and performance, the PUMA x Porsche Design collection was made for the modern gentleman – one who’s confident, active, and effortlessly stylish. The result is a collection of high-performance apparel that would work just as well in the driver’s seat of a sportscar, as it would on a hike in the mountains or on a casual stroll in the city.
Drawing on Puma’s know-how in creating innovative sportswear, as well as Porsche Design’s expertise in timeless design, the collaboration sees highlights like the Xetic sneakers, a state-of-the-art style that combines a unique shock absorption system made of structured foam that’s been designed by Puma’s FutureLab. This unique material provides unprecedented efficiency and comfort with every step to three different Porsche Design Xetic models, the Xetic M, Xetic L and Xetic M Shift.
For a sneaker that turns heads, the unique anodized colour effect on the Xetic M Shift creates a slick look that’ll bring you from the race track to the office effortlessly. The sporty Xetic M is perfect for hiking or the gym with its glacier grey colour way, while the Xetic L is a street-ready pair with its casual leather upper.
The best part? All Xetic styles are made only of recycled mesh material, the leather is completely chrome-free, and the sock liner consists of 30 percent algae. Even the dyes used to make the soles are produced through 3D printing, making these one of the most sustainable and thoughtful pairs of shoes you can gift this festive season.
Of course, there’s no better way to motivate the leading men in your life than with a full ensemble of performance-focused gear. The PUMA x Porsche Design collection of sportswear embodies the principle of being “ready to react”, with statement design and innovative features and materials that promise to take him to greater heights.
For the avid gym-goer, the dynamic Active evoKNIT tee is moisture-wicking, and can be worn on its own or under the Active evoKNIT mid layer, which is the perfect hybrid between a sports jacket and knitted hoodie. The moisture-regulating men’s polo is perfect for a game of golf over the weekend, while the water-repellent evoKNIT Pro parka is a suave option for rainy days here and abroad.
Like Porsche’s performance-driven cars, these pieces also see technologically-advanced materials like the Dri-Release™ cotton that pushes moisture to the outside of the garment to dry extremely quickly, as well as the built-in FreshGuard feature that keeps the wearer feeling fresh. Dual Thermo-R technology also responds to the skin’s temperature to keep its user cool all day, regardless of the activities.
With 2023 rolling around the corner, there’s no better time to live life on the fast lane and accelerate towards new goals than now.
