Survival of the fittest…
Born from the wilderness, this PUMA collection, designed in collaboration with size?, will embody four harsh terrain environments, from the Sahara through to the Inner City, adapting and evolving to provide the perfect survival tools.
The first drop comprises of the R698 and XS850, both re-issues from the 90’s Trinomic range that have stood the test of time.
The attention to detail is second to none with the design of the R698 Wilderness Sahara inspired by barren desert. With its leather toe box and suede upper resembling the dry windswept landscape, to the sand speckled mid sole, through to the colour pops of the fresh mirage blue inner and cacti green tab, representing a flicker of life in the harshest environments.
The striking design is followed through in the XS850 Wilderness Inner City. Originally a trail running shoe, the XS850 was designed for dealing with more uneven surfaces with maximum stability and with this re-issue it is set to well equip you for survival on the streets.
Inspired by the transformation of a city after dusk, of streets illuminated with street lights and engulfed by skyscrapers. With its black leather upper reminiscent of the dark gritty streets and 3M backed mesh reflecting the lit skyline of skyscrapers, through to the bright yellow inner of the street lights and car beams and green tab detailing, these are designed with the urban warrior in mind.
