Puma and Philippe Starck have collaborated on a footwear range, which will be unveiled at The Conran Shop this September. The three dark grey shoe designs, which come with micro-herringbone treads and brightly-coloured backs, adhere to Starck’s design philosophy. ‘Evolution in design is based not on showing off, but showing less and less.
