Sneaker Freaker x Puma ‘Bunyip’

Sneaker Freaker and Puma have come together once again, this time working on a very different spin on the classic Dallas silhouette.

Named the ‘Bunyip’, this shoe takes inspiration from the mythical Australian evil spirit of the same name. A swamp creature if you will. Having little knowledge of Australian folklore, we won’t pretend to know much about what this creature looks like, but it makes for a smooth looking shoe.

A black goat leather upper with a deep grey suede Form Stripe and black waxed laces make for a luxurious yet sinister shoe. The off-white heel with a refined Puma emblem helps reduce the all-black effect of the shoe, as do the red canvas pull tabs which is a relevant colour to both brands. What really makes this shoe unique is the crepe sole that the shoe sits on – not too chunky to make it a creeper, but thick enough to hold that unique crepe characteristic.

Although it’s own official model, this is a tweaking of the classic Puma Dallas, a popular shoe with most sneaker heads. It’s no surprise to see Sneaker Freaker working with this model, but it’s great to see Puma committing 100% and letting the Bunyip be it’s own shoe.

You can grab a pair of these mythical beasts over at End Clothing for £99 a pair.
