Puma RS-0 design

Last week saw the re-launch of the Puma RS-0 design, which looks back to the original sports roots to inspire a sportstyle collection for 2018. The original RS collection was formed around a high quality- innovate cushioning technology back in the 80s. This silhouette has been stripped down to the basics and rebuilt to accommodate a modern aesthetic starting at 0. The 0 sees a starting pint for Puma’s new RS-0 franchise which celebrates unique movements in culture.

“We are nostalgic for the aesthetics of the past with the expectations of the future. This is how PUMA defines the new RS-0. It’s taking something from the past, evolving it, and reinventing ​it for today,” – HEIKO DESENS, PUMA CREATIVE DIRECTOR FOR SPORTSTYLE

Friday 13th April saw the launch event in Berlin, which celebrated the past with references to arcade games , directly referencing the ‘future-retro’ makeover of the model. Designated areas were built to immerse the customer into the cultural innovation and aesthetic of the series where culture is pushed forward through innovation in design, style, tech and more.

The new AW14 expedition series takes inspiration from the mountainous Yosemite National Park and the city dwelling’s of the brands hometown in Toronto, Canada. The contrast of city vs. natural is the perfect balance, using simple silhouettes with premium fabrics and construction.

The Field Lite is perfect for all terrain from mountainous trails to metropolitan streets, offered in a feather marled knit and ventilated air mesh upper with a smooth EVA rubber outsole.


The Path Lite is a technical, lightweight runner constructed with the weather resistant materials. The upper consists of lightweight nylon and 3D no sew panels and sits on an EVA, rubber traction outsole.




The Evolution of OFFSPRING

At the forefront of the UK sneaker market ever since its launch in 1996; OFFSPRING started out in Neal Street, Covent Garden with the aim to create a shoe destination that would serve as a ‘Sneaker Boutique’. Both the store and the products inside were selected to show the pinnacle of design and innovation.

The 4 original stores set out to give their customer, a revolutionary and unique shopping experience in the UK, offering a distinctive selection of some of the biggest names in sportswear alongside smaller and limited designer brands.

OFFSPRING, as expected, turned into a huge success as more stores followed the originals and made a breakthrough when they entered into Selfridges London, Birmingham, Manchester, Trafford Centre and Topshop in Oxford Circus London.

OFFSPRING customers can also expect to see more collaboration projects and a growing list of new brands available both on site and in store.
