Product: PUMA RS-X Reinvention ‘White/Irish Green’
REINVENTION WITH WES THESIS
REINVENTION – WHAT DOES REINVENTING YOURSELF MEAN TO YOU?
Generally reinventing me is rejuvenating or recharging myself to a newer or better state of choice.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?
It regularly changes but I would say I’m a mix flamboyant and vintage,70s style mostly. My style is a reflection of the old hip-hop I listen to.
WHAT’S YOUR BIGGEST FASHION NO-NO?
I cringe when I see a fit with dark blue and black silhouettes in one outfit.

AT FIRST GLANCE – HOW DID YOU FEEL ABOUT THE PUMA RS-X LINE?
Honestly, first look I thought it’s more of a running shoe. Till my feet landed inside and I knew I could do both. Drip and run!
OWNING A PAIR ALREADY, HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE SILHOUETTE? (design, comfort, construction, fit,)
DESIGN: I love it. The design is appealing, dad shoes are trendy and a must have in your shoe closet. Puma ticked most of the boxes when it comes to the look of the RS.
FIT: It definitely sits well with most of my outfits, formal or casual, still gives me dapper results. With the green/lime color, it definitely is trendy and a standout.
COMFORT: Basically my feet are free when wearing the shoe. The sock construction is soft and comfortable ensuring a perfect fit and no blisters. Its thick sole makes me feel almost as I’m walking on clouds.
CONSTRUCTION: Features multiple textiles and details. Leather, suede, mesh, and cotton making it a little exquisite, for its price I think it is good. I was also delighted by the fact that they don’t crease a lot when bending so their shape is maintained. However, I felt as if the length was short than my usual shoe size and had to settle for the next bigger size. With its different textiles, it is not easy to clean.
RANKING THE RS-X REINVENTION
Construction + Design: 7/10
This is another well-executed colourway, going down the catalogue of the whole range, every release has its distinctive makeup and a good story behind it, making it hard to skip every release.
The latest PUMA RS-X Reinvention come dressed in PUMA White/ Irish Green color scheme, with a mix of materials including breathable mesh underlays, suede and leather overlays on the upper. The sneakers are fitted with a molded sock liner for added comfort, features the Running System writing on the tongue and on the side, as well as the PUMA logo on the tongue tag also inside the shoe.
For another edition of our ongoing editorial series exploring footwear and fashion’s best matchups, we present you the #YMZStyleBase: PUMA RS-X ‘Reinvention’.
We continue to explore different ways of styling the chunky silhouettes, in this case, the PUMA RS-X Reinvention, which carries the bulky design, adding to the dad-shoe trend.
The choice to go with this outfit is to highlight the simplicity and the clean look that complements the kicks.
Allowing the sneakers to stand out easily, Wes Thesis picked clean fits for his look, one is the All-White bright look and the other drip outfit is a combination of everything Green (pants + tee). Both outfits represent the streetwear look vibe:
- all White Jean to Jean combo for that serious modern clean look (not the ordinary serious checked shirt + khaki pants)
- to a cool cozy look with Tee and Trackpants.
Both fits completed with the PUMA RS-X Reinvention, the Irish Green colour is what makes the kicks pop out.
Those interested in picking up this pair can head over to PUMA SELECT stores (Joburg & Cape Town), Superbalist, Archive, and Hipkicks, where this PUMA RS-X Reinvention retails for R1,999.
Stay tuned for more heat from PUMA as the year flows.
