PUMA Launches 90s Running Inspired Primary Pack


This February PUMA’s Fast Track programme launches the first installment of the Primary Pack; a nostalgic pack of classic vintage-running silhouettes, re-imagined in the basic building blocks of the colour spectrum.

Venturing back into one of the most iconic eras for running sneakers; both the XS850 and Blaze of Glory shot to fame in the 90s for their distinctive use of revolutionary PUMA trinomic technology, that changed the scene with its honeycomb cells cushioning and supporting athletes, but quickly moved from the track to the streets.

The classic XS850 silhouette sports a distinctive speckled heel with a textured nylon upper and leather overlays, whilst the Blaze of Glory boasts an air mesh upper with soft nubuck overlays.



The latest version of these popular running designs sees two new bright block colour-ways adding a fresh perspective. Deep violet and black accents adorn the inner lining and toe areas of the Blaze of Glory with a clean white upper comprised of nylon and leather, while the XS850 sports a black inner sole completing this aesthetically striking pack.


The Blaze of Glory will retail for R1299 and the XS850 for R1499. Both sneakers can be found at PUMA SELECT stores in Cape Town, Bree Street and Braamfontein, Johannesburg, as well as Shelflife and X-Trend stores.
