For the month of July, PUMA will be dropping their new silhouette ‘PUMA RS 9.8 Space’.
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.
The sneaker is imagined with a textile upper decked with suede and leather overlays. With a lightweight PU 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 iteration drops in PUMA White – High-Risk Red colourway for men and PUMA White – Teal Green colourway for women.
The PUMA RS 9.8 Space will be available from Saturday, 20th July 2019, at PUMA, Sportscene, The Cross Trainer, The Office, Superbalist, Side Step, Jack Lemkus – for the retail price of R1599.
