To celebrate racing's biggest stage coming to Las Vegas, FEATURE has teamed up with PUMA to create the latest Slipstream Lo iteration. The ‘24H Las Vegas’ pays homage to the passion of motorsport fans, capturing the energy that defines racing culture. Bridging the gap between sports and fashion, the ‘24H Las Vegas’ sneaker is made for motorsport enthusiasts and shows the unforgettable mark that racing will leave on the Entertainment Capital of the World. Keep reading to get a closer look at the PUMA x FEATURE Slipstream Lo.
The white and red colorway of the ‘24H Las Vegas’ resembles the berm of the track and is intentionally scuffed along the midsole to represent the physical mark that this race will leave behind. The hairy suede texture is attributed to the wear and tear of slick race tires after hours of driving, earning the name ‘24H Las Vegas.’ The custom box sports a contrasting view of the Las Vegas strip, and each pair comes with a clear PVC bag. The PUMA x FEATURE Slipstream Lo was designed to unite motorsport enthusiasts worldwide.
From Le Mans To Las Vegas
The hairy suede construction of the ‘24H Las Vegas’ holds a deeper meaning. The distinctive texture of the shoe finds its origin in the wear and tear of race tires after hours of driving, embodying the spirit of the endurance required for racing. The sneaker is intentionally scuffed out of the box as well to add to the weathered effect. This unique addition is attributed to the racetrack itself, representing the tire marks and general wear that the Las Vegas streets will experience after the big race weekend.
Custom Packaging | Transportation Ease
The sneaker is housed in a custom box, which has a contrasting view of the Las Vegas Strip. The exterior of the box shows a daytime view, while the interior boasts a nighttime view. The packaging does not end there, each pair comes with a clear PVC drawstring bag to transport the shoes between venues and events throughout the race weekend. This thoughtful addition was inspired by the recognition that many large-scale venues necessitate the use of clear bags, providing not just style but practicality in equal measure.
The PUMA x FEATURE Slipstream Lo '24H Las Vegas' will be available online + in-store on November 17, 2023.
