Puma is one of the world’s most renowned companies when it comes to athletic and lifestyle footwear. It is also among the oldest brands alongside Adidas and Reebok. Established in 1948, Puma was founded by Rudolf Dassler in Germany.
Its first footwear release was a soccer shoe called the Atom. Because of the brand’s ingenuity when it comes to athletic footwear, many athletes and champions are already seen wearing Puma shoes to important events, including the Olympics.
With the advent of athleisure shoes, there have also been plenty of sports shoe-turned-casual kicks from the brand. Among them is the Puma RS collection. The first Puma RS-100 shoe was first released in 1986 as a running shoe. It was considered as one of the most advanced shoes during its time, thanks to the tech-forward Running System (RS) midsole.
Puma has since reinvented the RS-100 using different materials and in several colorways, while still retaining the signature cushioning technology and retro styling. Today, the Puma RS-100 Optic is launched as a lifestyle sneaker that pays homage to photography and visual design. This futuristic sneaker boasts a monochromatic upper with several metallic details.
- Metallic details are found on the vamp and tongue of the Puma RS-100 Optic.
- This shoe also has a metallic Puma RS-100 branding near the collar opening.
- The Puma Formstrip overlay comes with a metallic outline as well.
