I was in London yesterday to get a preview of what Puma has up its retro-sporty sleeves for S/S 2012, and while there these beauties caught my eye – leather high tops from the current Puma x Alexander McQueen range. I realise that what we’re looking at is the Union Jack, something I usually stay away from in sartorial terms lest I get pummelled to a pulp on Gardiner Street, but in the navy version it’s almost vague enough to be interpreted as an abstract tribal design.

Here’s just one of the men’s shoes – again, a leather high top. As far as I know you can buy the men’s Alexander McQueen / Puma collaborations in Brown Thomas, but I don’t know of any Irish stockists for the women’s – you may just have to go online to get your mitts on a pair!
