Gone are the days when trainers were solely reserved for sporting types or your daily commute. Instead, over the past few years, sneakers have proved more popular than ever with plenty of us choosing a comfort sole over a skinny heel any day of the week. As a result, we're always on the lookout for a new box-fresh style to add to our growing collection. And when it comes to this season’s trending trainers, there’s one launch on everybody’s lips right now: the Puma Slipstream.

If You Only Buy One Pair Of Trainers This Summer, Make It These
The new PUMA Slipstream Sneakers are a modern take on the 80s basketball classics – and we can already tell we’re going to live in them.
PUMA has a loyal and proud sneakerhead following, and the Slipstream sneaker has something of a cult status since it first launched in the 1980s. A retro basketball-inspired silhouette, it quickly became a staple in many of our wardrobes and then again when it was later brought back as a Japanese streetwear style in the 2000s. And for its latest iteration, available exclusively at Foot Locker, the Slipstream has a monochrome, timeless feel – and honestly, it’s going to go with everything. But don’t fear, because the 2022 look hasn’t compromised on its classic heritage of the shoe or its basketball ingrained roots at all. Instead, the new revamp takes PUMA’s Court Classics style into a chunky territory that’s perfect for anyone looking for something striking and substantial, without feeling OTT.
What we love most is how easy they are to style. Let’s face it, the chunkiest trainers in your wardrobe only look amazing with trousers, but this design is the right balance between style and stacked, working perfectly with bare legs and even those ultra-pretty summer dresses that could benefit from some extra edge. Boys, don't sweat it - these are a dream with shorts.
With plush leather uppers, suede overlays and retro pops of colour throughout the collection, these classic sneakers are full of attitude and flair, without straying from the white trainer look that will frankly never go out of style. Trust us – now you know what they look like, you’re going to see them everywhere that matters this summer.
While the Puma Slipstream is available exclusively at Foot Locker, you won't be able to stop eyeing up the other big name trainers they've got to offer this summer. Scroll on to discover our edit of the best.
