Inspired by new frontiers and galaxies, PUMA is introducing the all-new RS 9.8 sneaker pack. Made for those who defy societal rules and the laws of physics, this new silhouette enters new realms with its aerodynamic simplicity.
A nod to Human’s growing interplanetary aspirations, the name RS 9.8 speaks to 9.8 m/s2 – the approximate speed of gravitational acceleration near the Earth’s surface. Just as the speed of an object falling freely here increases by about 9.8 meters per second every second, the sneakers powered with PUMA’s Running System technology adds much-needed momentum to the new design.
The influence of space explorations gives the shoe a FUTRO aesthetic that features cosmos-themed bold colors. Adding a fresh streak to streetstyle, the sneaker is imagined with a textile upper decked with suede and leather overlays. With a light weight PU midsole reinvented to create unique, space-inspired spheres, the sole is built to provide adequate cushioning. Pulling together elements from various models in the RS Family including super comfy sock liners and RS foam, the first colourways will release on July 20th. Scroll down to get an exclusive look…
