Size and fit

The low-top Puma RS-X Tech is available in both genders' sizing. Women have sizes 6 to 11 while the gents can choose from sizes 4 to 13 US both in regular shoe width. This pair runs true to size, but if the buyer wants to have a little wiggling room for his or her toes, they are advised to take a half size up than their usual fit.

The Jumping Cat brand used the full lace-up closure system that allows an adjustable and secure fit to its wearers. Meanwhile, the collar and tongue have ample padding to boost the overall comfort. This shoe also has the lightweight PU midsole that offers support and cushioning.

The stocky midsole of the RS-X Tech has the Running System cushioning technology. This technology originated in the 80s that boosts the overall comfort and durability of the sneaker. It is made of a mix of materials found underfoot that absorbs shock keeping its wearers on top of their games.

Puma RS-X Tech Style

The chunky RS-X Tech features a design stirred from the 80s that was revamped to fit the current fashionable trend. The upper is made of mesh and textile materials with synthetic leather overlays. This shoe is presented in various combinations of hues such as Puma White/Whisper White, Vaporous Gray/Fair Aqua, Puma Black/Vaporous Gray, Puma White/Peach Bud, and many more color combinations.

Because of this pair's running heritage, styling this has no limits. It is easy to match this kick up with any athletic getup, such as a tracksuit, jogging pants paired with Dri-Fit shirt. This sneaker also looks excellent when paired with relaxed attire, such as oversized or skinny jeans paired with fun and quirky printed shirts. Meanwhile, for a bolder look, try wearing this with retro attire such as acid wash jeans and a denim jacket for a straight outta the 80s look.

Notable Features

Stylish and sporty, the Puma RS-X Tech displays a bulky profile that suits the current dad sneaker trend. This model perfectly fused the athletic look from the 80s and the modern fashionable appeal by combining hues that complement each other.

Another cool detail is the plastic pull tab on the heel that says, "Pull Me." This element was designed to help the wearers in slipping this pair on, especially for users with wide feet. Also, the unique execution of the heel pull tab on the RS-X Tech amps up the overall appeal of this model.
