Puma TSUGI Jun Pace History

In 2017, Puma released a new lifestyle sneaker model inspired by the Japanese architecture – the Puma TSUGI Shinsei. “Tsugi" is a Japanese word that means "more" or "next" while "Shinsei," another Japanese word, translates to "rebirth." Puma teamed up with Kith to help introduce the future of the brand's sneaker design. Three colorways, including a black one, a white colorway, and a Kith-exclusive "Kithstrike” colorway, released on April 14 at Kith Soho, Kith Brooklyn, and online at Kith.com originally for $110 per pair for the black and white colorways and $120 for the Kithstrike.

Created by Puma designers led by Heiko Desens (Puma Sportstyle Creative Director), the Puma Tsugi Shinsei’s futuristic aesthetic includes features like a knitted upper in a sock-like construction, unique lace closure, and the Puma Ignite Foam cushioning.

A follow-up model to the TSUGI Shinsei released in November 2017, the Puma Tsugi Jun. It utilizes a full evoKnit sock upper, engineered elastic heel reinforcement, additional leather panels on the sides for midfoot support and stability, signature side lacing system, ribbed tooling, and Puma Ignite Foam cushioning. First few pairs of this shoe were made available at the Puma Lab powered by Foot Locker, Shoe Palace, and Puma’s official website PUMA.com for $110 each.

One iteration of the Tsugi Jun is the Puma TSUGI Jun Pace. It boasts similar features to the Tsugi Jun, but its upper is of two-toned knitted textile material. The sock-like bootie construction is retained, as well as the reinforcements, Ignite midsole, and razor-edged rubber outsole. The Puma TSUGI Jun Pace originally retailed at $130 per pair. One colorway is the Puma TSUGI Jun Pace "Puma White - Pale Lime Yellow."
