The Weeknd x Puma Suede Classic is part of the musician's Puma XO collection. Adding lifestyle touches to military-inspired design, the Suede Classic style is transformed into a futuristic-looking sneaker boot in black. A gum rubber sole with black speckling grounds it. Innovative updates include a buckle strap around the toe and ankle in place of a conventional lacing system. The sneaker's 1968 birth year is split on the center of each tongue so it reads "19" and "68."
