I’ve never been a huge fan of the Alexander McQueen and Puma collaboration, its always struck me as a really crass attempt by Gucci to shoehorn two of their brands together in an attempt to push McQueen into the mainstream, and Puma into the fashion world.  They never really seem to  do it well and I’m always left wondering who these sneakers are aimed at.  However , the latest release from the line fulfills the potential that both brands have to make this collaboration a sucess, the Alexander McQueen x Puma Black Tech KO offers a techy yet minimal high top sneaker in luxurious black leather, which carefully balances the sportswear and high fashion elements of the design to create a shoe that for once will actually appeal to their target market.
