A few years back premier boutique size? commemorated their 10th year anniversary. Part of the shop’s celebratory acts was to collaborate with some of the brands that they supported and whom supported them in that decade’s time. So a special pack with the likes of Puma was not surprising. Technically a triple collaboration, the minds of Trainerspotter but their designing brains to use as well to create these special Sky II Hi’s. Here we focus on the more popular “Miami Vice” build.

The brands wanted to draw upon all 80’s influence for the design of the sneaker.
“The original ethos for Trainerspotter was drawn from the stories of sports history and the aesthetic of the TV show MIAMI VICE. Michael Mann was given complete creative control over the show and enforced a ban on primary colours, limiting the colour palette for each episode to pastel tones with the exception of the neons seen at night. These colours became the show’s signature, no detail was gratuitous, the clothes, colours, cars, architecture all expressed the milieu through which the characters were moving. We have always emulated this vision by restricting our palette in the same way and these colours have now become our signature.”
The Sky High II was set up in tones straight from the actor’s wardrobe. Grey with mint and pink to show off that South Beach lifestyle. Additional details like removal of the standard logo on tongue and heel brought out the theme even more. The look so appealing that Trainerspotter also created a special bike that matched the look of the shoes. Although the beige pair of the pack sold well, this version was definitely the winner of the two during the Fall of 2010.
