It’s already been five years since we saw the Hanon x Puma Dallas “Special Reserve” Pack. For those that don’t know Hanon they are one of the premier international sneaker boutiques located in Scotland. Sneakerheads around the globe know them for shipping worldwide for a relatively inexpensive rate too. Not the biggest physical shop around, they have built relationships with their brand and have had the honor of collaborating with a few over the years. In 2011 they were given the prestige of four premium versions of the Puma Dallas which recently returned to the Puma catalog the previous year.
The 80’s trainer’s were loosely inspired by old school athletic apparel and colors. The uppers were created using a combination of plush suede with nubuck overlay panels. Contrasting with the mostly tonal body was contrasting bespoke argyle on the liner and insole. The sneakers were wrapped in matching argyle shoe bags with your choice of colors being grey/white and navy/white which were more widely released. For those lucky enough to get their sneakers from Hanon had the choice of Mushroom/gum or burgundy/yellow. Each of these were packaged in numbered wooden boxes with special branding, hangtags and matching scarves.
These might not “break necks” but the look and quality is something that stands the test of time. Much of Hanon’s designs are simple and classic and these fit into that category.
