Fit & Sizing

The RS-100 Nubuck turns out to be one of the comfy pairs listed under Puma’s low-top range that’s constructed with a sufficiently padded footbed, tongue, and collar. You can easily adjust the fit with its lace-up setup. The sizes available for this shoe are in men’s stretching from 7 to 14 US. Female who wish to order may have to go 1.5 sizes down to get the equivalent measurement.

Puma RS-100 Nubuck Style

Strap up with trendy and retro-styled Puma RS-100 Nubuck by teaming it up with pin-rolled jeans, shirt, denim jacket for a relaxed approach. Go for sweatpants, printed tee, and a plaid shirt for a street-savvy look. For a preppy or dapper vibe, toss this kick together with tapered dress pants, polo shirt, and a cardigan.

Notable Features

The 1980s running-inspired RS-100 Nubuck by Puma trumps in comfort and style.  It may no longer be suitable for running, but it still keeps the feet locked in plush in-shoe feel with the sufficient amount of stuffing around the collar, under the tongue, and on the inlay sole. It isn’t heavy on the feet as it is constructed with a lightweight IMEVA foam which also grants a boost in comfort.

Puma RS-100 Nubuck History

Puma goes retro and pays homage to its 1980s popular running shoe with its reintroduction of the RS-100 sneaker, displaying a classic-meets-contemporary street-ready makeup. Featuring color blocking aesthetic and the same low-top built as the original running silhouette is the Puma RS-100 Nubuck sneaker.

The brand launched two tech-forward shoes in 1986, the Puma RS-100 (short for Running System) and the Puma RS-Computer shoe. The former, which was constructed with a leather and textile cover, padded collar, and the Running System gel insole, was deemed to be advanced for its time.

The latter, meanwhile, happened to be the first analytical shoe by Puma that had the capability of aiding runners in tracking down their performance through a computer chip embedded in the heel. Since Bluetooth devices weren’t available back then, a cable port was built into the shoe, and the data gets to be projected on the computer monitor.

In April 2018, under a new Running System catalog, Puma dropped the Puma RS-0, a comeback model, which lives in the future with hints of the past. After releasing the first RS lifestyle sneaker, it was succeeded by other future-retro silhouettes including the RS-100 and RS-100 Nubuck.
