Solebox x Puma R698

Puma has teamed up with German Sneaker retailer Solebox to create the limited edition of the iconic 80’s runner; the R698.

Sharing the same tooling as the Disc Blaze, the R698 is an expansion of PUMA’s Trinomic technology collection that was first introduced in the early 1980’s. This shoe is made out of soft suede overlays and lightweight athletic mesh panels. The special colourway of the R698 Solebox in white/steel gray/black with a slash of vivid colour pops in florescent pink and blue atoll, setting it off in all the right places and brings us back to that unforgettable decade.

The crew at Solebox added a special highlight, flashing laces in vibrant blue which start to blink when the shoe is moving.

Only a limited amount of pairs of this must-have-item were exclusively made for Solebox and are available beginning April 18th only at the Solebox Store in Berlin.

Here you get a first look. Later this week we should be able to provide a closer look at the sneaker, as well as at the flashing laces.
