Still dropping some fire, sports brand PUMA is introducing the all-new RS 9.8 Space sneaker pack – inspired by new frontiers and galaxies, by people who defy societal rules and the laws of physics, the kick enters new realms with its aerodynamic simplicity.
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 a new, fashionable silhouette.
Adding a fresh streak to street style, the PUMA RS 9.8 is imagined with a textile upper decked with suede and leather overlays. The shoe features a lightweight PU (Polyurethane) 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 release of the PUMA RS 9.8 Space arrives in two colourways (PUMA White – High-Risk Red colourway for Men) and (PUMA White – Teal Green colourway for Women).
A very clean, stylish and lightweight sneaker – if you are hooked to add this one to your collection, look out for the PUMA RS 9.8 Space to release on Saturday, 20 July 2019 (retail price R1599) at:
