The Puma RS-X

A true classic in the sneaker scene, the Puma RS-X is the updated version of the original 1980s model, and is inspired by sport but made for the streets with its on-trend chunky design.  

What is the Puma Running System?

In 1985 Puma developed a new cushioning system called the Running System (RS) Collection. Featuring a sole that combined four components with different characteristics into one unit, the shoe both absorbed shock and controlled motion.

In 1986, one of Puma’s greatest innovations was developed by Dr. Peter Cavanagh based on this new system – the RS-Computer shoe, the first of its kind.
 
The computer on the heel of the RS gave runners the new ability to compare their runs, helping them to understand how to become faster and more efficient. It recorded distance, time and calories, and users could connect it to computers such as the Commodore 64 to view the data.

What is Puma RS-X?

The Puma RS was re-launched in 2018 as the Puma RS-X range which takes inspiration from the original 1980s design with an updated chunky sneaker look for the streets.

The collection debuted with the RS-X Reinvention, which mixed suedes, leather, meshes and textiles in a modern call-back to the RS-Computer. The colorway paid tribute by using bold red and blue hues from the Puma archive, and also featured a large tongue tab to add to its retro vibe.

What materials are Puma RS-X made of?
