The Black and Stone colourway is a suuuuper easy choice to pair with anything and everything! Shop online.
A '70s running gem. The Nike Challenger was a staple for a lot of runners thanks to its lightweight and breathable construction. The simple foam midsole is still as comfortable as ever and the mesh upper allows for all day wear without foot fatigue. When on, these shoes look SO GOOD and work perfectly well with smart-casual outfits as well as workout ones. We also love the Team Orange colourway because it adds a nice pop of colour to match the season. You'd be surprised with how many things orange goes with... Shop online
The Mirage Mox is the result of taking inspiration from the archive and blending it with the now. A new sneaker for Puma, this silhouette is based on some of their best running shoes from the '70s. Slightly heavier than the Saucony and Nike, it is perfect for those that love a bit more 'chunk'. Featuring an EVA midsole for comfort, heel clip for stability and caged lace system for complete support, these sneakers will take you about town with ease!

In the '80s, serious runners set the pace in ZX running shoes that featured a high-tech design based on biomechanics research. These days, those techy specs still do the trick, offering support, comfort and performance! Nice and lightweight, the ZX is a good choice for those with wider feet. An EVA midsole provides excellent comfort whilst the mesh upper offers breathability and the unique tread stability. The ZX always made sure you were representing the brand with the 3-Stripes boldy.
