PUMA x Pro:Direct Launch The Future 2.1 "LDN City Pack"

Pro:Direct hooked up with two of London's' finest creative talents in Poet & Yinka and set them the task of working their craft over a trio of PUMA's latest footwear models. The results are steeped in London influence and low-key storytelling style, and furthermore they'll be worn on-pitch by Marko Arnautovic when West Ham host Man United on Saturday.

The inspiration behind the Future 2.1 boots is the estates of London. From the outside they're cold, grey and solid, but it's what's inside that makes them a unique place to live and grow. The inside of an estate and the people who live within it inspired the patchwork graphic on the insoles of both the Future 2.1 and ONE 18.1 boots.

This patchwork is a series of patterns found on things that represented Poet’s childhood growing up in London: bus tickets, take away menus, sweet wrappers, old mobile phones etc. On the outside the light concrete upper represents a typical London tower block, and "No Ball Games" wording on the heel represents the rebellious nature using your home as your urban home ground.
