Model: RS 9.8
Key Features: The sneaker pulls together elements from various models in the RS Family including super comfy sock liners and RS foam. Influenced by space explorations, the new model features cosmos-themed bold colors and aerodynamic simplicity.
Release Date: July 20
Editor’s Notes: After announcing the reboot of their sporty archival ’80s RS-X model, PUMA launches a new RS franchise, the RS 9.8.
The name RS 9.8 speaks to 9.8 m/s2 – the approximate speed of gravitational acceleration near the Earth’s surface. The term consists with PUMA’s running system technology that adds much-needed momentum and support to the sneaker’s lightweight silhouette.
The design takes inspiration from elements in various models in the RS Family including super comfy sock liners and RS foam, but separates itself with its FUTRO aesthetic and space exploration influence.
