The Puma Slipstream "Made In Italy" - Brown, Grey & Green ($295) is one cool looking shoe. It was inspired by its predecessor "The Beast" and features premium animal materials from Italy. You'll notice that some of the side panels are composed of black pony hair, while the overlays are reptile skin. While the dark green shell is wrapped in full grain leather. Metal lace eyelets finish off the silhouette. The whole kit sits on a thick white midsole with a black outsole.

Additional features include heel support, leather insole, and foam collar for premium support. So if you're looking for a minimal shoe that stands out, this has got to be the pair for you.
