Puma TSUGI Apex evoKNIT History

The Puma brand has always been at the forefront of innovation. And the arrival of the TSUGI collection just drove home that fact. For a brand that was already helping athletes track their distance covered and calories burned way back in 1986 by way of a shoe (Puma RS), innovation is nothing new. So it was really no surprise when Puma launched the minimalist but highly advanced Tsugi collection courtesy of the Tsugi Shinsei.

Tsugi in Japanese means “next” and Shinsei means “rebirth.”The coming of the Tsugi range was in line with the brand’s realignment of its priorities as one of the top contenders for the lifestyle shoe market.

The TSUGI collection blends Japanese street-style with German shoe tech know-how. The shoes take their cues from high-fashion style and advanced engineering. Shoes that belong to this collection are infused with Puma’s technology, the Japanese’s sense of style, and knit uppers for comfort.

The TSUGI Shinsei was followed by many more silhouettes including the TSUGI Apex and its evoKNIT counterpart, the TSUGI Apex evoKNIT.
