Old School Cool

This top notch footwear inspired by the 808, which is universally adored across a musical spectrum with both pioneering and contemporary Hip Hop producers being advocates of its booming bass drum and crispy hi hats. An array of dance music genres have and continue to make use of the 808’s robotic claps, driving looping patterns and all-round versatility to add impact to their music and these uber-cool sneakers are a nod to its influence in the music arena.

The Puma x Roland RS-0 Sneakers apply the iconic visuals of the 808 to Puma’s RS-Series of legendary running shoes to deliver the sort of footwear that is a triple threat of looking awesome, delivering exceptional comfort and not costing the earth. These brilliant sneakers boast a luxurious leather black upper, micro perf vents, 6mm flat, reflective laces, reflective midsole details and signature TR-808 colors—red, orange and yellow—on the Formstrip for a mighty impressive aesthetic impact.

These colours bare a striking resemblance to the colours of the iconic drum machine which pays homage to the electronic kick and drum. There are immediately familiar notes like “Rhythm Composer” and “Bass Drum” accenting the midsole of these sneakers whilst the orange hue carries on to the translucent rubber outsole. PUMA and Roland branding can be located on the tongue label, footbed and the anodized metal hangtag in what is one of the coolest collaborations of 2018.
