PUMA has launched a new strategic partnership with DJ Snake. The renowned "Middle" producer is the German footwear company's newest spokesperson, and together the two will be launching a new and improved version of the PUMA Mirage.

The Mirage was first introduced to the market a remarkable 50 years ago as a track and field-focused shoe. However, it didn't gather much appeal until the 1990s, when it found its stride as a casual jogging shoe.

With its newest instantiation, PUMA is aiming to preserve some of the shoe's storied stylistic origins while adding the flare fit for the modern era. The Mirage Tech sports an eye-grabbing, cyberpunk-like aesthetic layering wavy red accents atop a black and grey color palette.
