Nowadays it’s not out of the ordinary to see a shoe come dressed in a faux-reptile upper or covered with gold accents all over it. Although it has become more and more common to see these traits, that doesn’t mean we’ve grown tired of them. Take for example this version of the Puma R698. Utilizing those said traits, this version of the shoe makes the model look as lavish as ever.

The shoe starts off with a black base done up in a reptie-embossed leather. Offsetting the croc texture are the gold accents placed throughout the shoe such as in the heel, eyelets and branding on the tongue that comes by way of a metal Puma nameplate. A black sole unit, laces and lining complete the tonal look of the shoe. Available now, the ladies can pick up their very own pair of the Puma R698 for $95.

Very dope looking iteration of the Puma R698. I’ve never seen the model look as fancy as it does here. Women’s sneaker or not, I wouldn’t mind picking up a pair of these.
