Global sports brand PUMA is keeping the momentum strong with their RS chronicles – with the launch of the RS-X Trophies, this latest iteration of the RS-X sneaker celebrates the extreme reinvention of fame in the era of social media and reality television.
As worn by South African rapper, songwriter and record producer Nasty C who scooped major awards including Best New Artist at the Metro FM Music Awards, making him the perfect fit for the RS-X Trophies.
Built with RS technology on the midsole, the bulky silhouette with mesh and textile upper is stylishly decked with leather overlays. Elevating the look with gold accents along the quarter panels, the sneakers in PUMA Black – PUMA Team Gold colourway are embossed with a textile heel piece and moulded sockliner with specific RS branding. Completing the look with tonal laces, the sneakers are placed atop rubber outsole with a light weight midsole.
The sneakers of the season come in two additional colourways – PUMA White-Bronze and Steel-Grey Dark Shadow.
Back in the ‘80s, the RS was an innovative and high-quality cushioning technology. PUMA has revived and reinvented this design from the ground up. The new RS-X range is all-things extreme, exaggerated and remixed. Embracing the future and honouring the past, the OG-inspired silhouette celebrates extreme reinvention with its bulky design, material mixes, and bold colour palette.
The RS-X Trophies drops on 1 February 2019 for R1 999 at PUMA stores, sportscene, X-Trend, Side Step, Superbalist, Jack Lemkus and selected retailers.
