Over the years, sneakers have been inspired by quite a few things, but the Dim Sum Project boasts one of the more interesting influences to date. To be modeled after food is one thing, but dim sum is something else entirely. As soon as a person takes into account the huge Asian influence in fashion these days, however, the Dim Sum Project doesn't seem so surprising anymore.

A collaborative effort between Hypebeast and PUMA, the Dim Sum Project is specifically modeled after best-sellers Har Gao (shrimp dumplings) and Siu Mai (pork dumplings). While the "Siu Mai" Blaze of Glory OG is made for a simpler palette, those looking for something more unique will appreciate the semi-transparent "Har Gao" Blaze of Glory LTWT.
