It all began in Sweden. True story. PUMA Creative Directors and designers were trudging through a typical Nordic storm, scavenging Stockholm for just the right pub. Things got slippery. Then things got inspiring… Skip ahead a few months: the Alpine Boot was born. Weather-ready, versatile, and fuzzy, it'll have your feet and skinny jeans saying "tack" throughout the season. The high side wall is inspired by and made for those slushy Stockholm strolls; it's further supported by the anti-slip, lugged outsole. Herringbone and fleece lend extra style to this sneaker-boot, which can be worn up or folded down.
The Alpine Boot is also geared to spread cheer through the holidays. Use it to create a Polyvore collage, then enter the collage to win the PUMA x Polyvore Art of Gifting contest.
