You know when something awesome happens and the only sentiment you want to express remains something alongside the lines of *drops mic*? Well, this here reaction is just not enough in this here instance. Read on further and… wait for it.
My PUMA fam’s Fast Track programme sees a rad introduction of the limited edition Green Box Pack. Radical, I tell you. Sending me straight into a remarkable fit of glee –because I just cannot enough of everything green (called it HERE before spotting it HERE); the nostalgic pack takes cue from the original Trinomic PUMA box and the product is a collective of classic vintage running silhouettes decked out in an alluring shade of green.
Four of some of the very best kicks referencing and iconic era of running sneakers in the history of the brand are updated and killin’ the game right now.
The XS850 gained notoriety in its ‘92 heyday, showcasing PUMA’s revolutionary trinomic-cushioned technology born in the early running boom days. This runner still has its distinctive speckled heel with a textured nylon upper and leather overlays. The 3M underlay on the quarter features a honeycomb graphic and colour pops in white on the heel.
The Blaze of Glory 90s silhouette boasts an air mesh upper with soft nubuck overlays. The TPU piece feature a honeycomb graphic with colour pops in white on the heel pull.
The look and build of the original ‘93 version of the runner, the R698 holds a textured nylon upper with nubuck overlays and green piping for a rich finish.
PUMA’s most iconic running style the XT2 completes the pack, with its 90s model lightweight textile upper with a full grain leather formstrip in white.
These kicks are available at PUMA SELECT stores in Bree Street, Cape Town, and Braamfontein in Johannesburg.
