The ‘FEATURE 1’ sits at the intersection of fashion and sports. The sneaker arrives in a monochromatic colorway that pays homage to the chassis of an open-wheel race car, matching the vehicle's carbon body and titanium components. Additional details include multiple sets of laces inspired by livery color stories, a unique footbed with the Las Vegas track outline, and a custom box resembling the blueprint of making a race car. Each pair comes with a clear PVC bag that allows the wearer to transport the sneaker easily to events. This custom PUMA x FEATURE Velophasis was designed to support some of racing’s biggest teams.
The Monochromatic Look | Livery Laces
The subtlety of this sneaker is intentional, as the all over gray coloring grants the wearer the freedom to put their own twist on it. Each pair comes with multiple set of laces of various colors that can be easily switched out. The versatility of the 'FEATURE 1' allows drivers to be a united front without sacrificing their livery. Additionally, the monochromatic colorway holds a deeper meaning. The all-over gray hue is representative of the chassis of an open-wheel race car, which mirrors the vehicle's carbon body and titanium elements.
Custom Packaging | Transportation Ease
The sneaker is housed in a custom box, which resembles a blueprint of the makings of a race car. 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 Velophasis 'FEATURE 1' will be available online + in-store on November 17, 2023.
