The ultimate accessory?

So you’ve recently upgraded your wheels from a jalopie to a new BMW M2 and now you’re wondering what else you can do to up your street cred?

Look no further, PUMA has released the latest edition to its DISC footwear franchise, the futuristic looking metallic silver BMW X-CAT DISC.  You’re not going to be able to get your hands on the revolutionary concept car that inspired the ultramodern X-CAT shoe with its special fabric covered metal chassis for quite some time but you can get in the spirit of the collaboration that came up with the eye candy before you.

BMW GINA concept car – the inspiration

I have a pair or two of the re-invented DISC shoes by PUMA and the fit and comfort levels are beyond anything you have experienced from a regular shoe. The disc is quick to lock and unlock and the snug fit is remarkable.

The outer of the shoe features a silver stretch fabric, resembling the metallic material used on the car and modified for footwear use. As the shoe opens and closes the form of the shoe transforms, as does the car. The shoe’s silver material sits over the DISC closure system and when tightened the wires are revealed under the material. Finishing touches included a laser cut upper across the front of the shoe, inspired by gill like texture that appears on the car when its doors open. PUMA’s iconic formstripe runs on the outer of each shoe in a reflective print and BMW’s logo features on the DISC.

The BMW X-CAT DISC will be available from 1 July at The Cross Trainer stores and selected retailers for R2 699.
