After the overwhelming barrage of sneaker wedges, we thought we’d give up on couture kicks for a while. But thanks to the long-anticipated PUMA and Solange Knowles collaboration, it looks like we’re far from abstaining from the concept of fashion sneakers.

PUMA’s Disc was launched back in 1992 and was popular for chucking the shoelace concept out of the window. It features a specific closure technology with the use of a rotating dial (i.e., the disc), which tightens and loosens up internal wires for a custom fit. This is very useful for particular runners out there.

Knowles’ contribution was to revive it with her penchant for bold colors and unique patterns. And, really, who doesn’t love psychedelic running shoes? The collaboration is named “Girls of Blaze” and comes in three variants: Rainforest, Rainbow, and Tire.
