PUMA and carmaker BMW have got together to release the sleek and shiny X-CAT DISC sneaker.

The shoe combines the futuristic design of PUMA's DISC range with the streamlined power and efficiency of BMW. It takes inspiration from one of BMW's most innovative concept cars: the GINA Light Visionary Model. The GINA featured a seamless fabric outer shell that stretched over the car's chassis.

The X-CAT DISC sneaker sees one thin and laser-cut layer of the stretchable and super-light GINA material become the focal point of the design. It removes the need for multiple seams and instead allows the shoe to wrap around the foot like a second skin. Instead of using laces, a rotating disc pulls internal wires to open and close the shoe.

The BMW x PUMA X-CAT DISC will be available in select PUMA stores around the world on July 1.

This isn't the first time a car manufacturer has ventured into the sneaker world, here's the all-white Ultra Boost from Porsche Design by adidas.
