Not much is known about the PUMA Shadow Society. Like the Freemasons or the Illumanati, they’re a secretive organization filled with men and women of prestige and influence the world over. In the case of the PUMA Shadow Society, their charter is fairly straightforward: collaborate with the shoe maker by choosing the colors, materials and degree of branding to create a banging pair of kicks. The first model to get the Shadow Society workup is the States (formerly known as the Suede), a shoe particularly popular in the UK among trainer enthusiasts and soccer fans. Coming in a grey or teal colorway, each pair also comes with multiple replacement laces in different colors and widths. Look for the shoe to drop on August 26th at select retailers, including Shoe Biz in San Francisco and Foot Patrol in London.
