Porsche fans have it good! Not only can they choose from a remarkable selection of top-class automobiles both traditional and electric, but lifestyle products as well. The latter comes from the carmaker’s Porsche Design label which offers fashion, sport, eyewear, electronics, timepieces, bags, luggage, and accessories. What we would like to showcase now is the XETIC N Trainer.
Although the name alludes to more athletic endeavors, these kicks are dapper enough for casual use. You can already guess by the leaping cat that this remains a collaboration with sports apparel and lifestyle brand PUMA. Some years back, the German carmaker was in partnership with Adidas. Hence, we could probably see it ink a deal with others in the future.
For now, its current venture is delivering one stylish footwear after another. Buyers can get the XETIC N Trainer in either Navy Blazer or Varsity Green. Despite the cosmetic differences, you can look forward to outstanding performance and comfort engineered for various activities.
The upper is crafted out of premium nubuck leather with perforations of various sizes that form distinct patterns. Along with the plush lining, this aids in breathability so your feet don’t feel stuffy even after a long day of use. As with most Porsche Design x PUMA shoes, they’re keeping the branding subtle.
In the case of the XETIC N Trainer, laser-cut signatures adorn the lateral side of the midfoot, tongue, and heel pull tab panel. Only 911 pairs will be available and you can see its number in the series on the 50Y Porsche Design Limited Edition marking on the tongue’s edges. It uses a traditional lace closure system. Finally, superior cushioning and energy return come from PUMA’s proprietary XETIC midsole technology.Check Price
