First Look: PUMA R698 Kosma Pack



To highlight the true potential of the R698 design, the latest Trinomic pack fully emphanises the shoe’s iconic silhouette by blocking every panel in different material executions.

The R698 was born into a great tradition of revolutionary ‘90s PUMA performance footwear. Trinomic technology changed the scene with its use of a hexagonal system in the sole that compressed and rebounded load whilst the Trinomic honeycomb cells cushioned and supported athletes. Thanks to its distinctive design, the iconic shoe is now more often seen on the streets than on running tracks.


Each panel of the R698 in the Kosma Pack is constructed from a different material, from mesh to soft leather all topped off with a crackled premium nubuck. The new collection is being released in three bold colours representing the mood and golden hues of Fall – lead by the Inca Gold colourway followed by the High Risk Red and Black styles.


The Kosma Pack (R1499) can be found at SELECT stores in Bree Street, Cape Town and Braamfontein, Johannesburg from today (13 November  2015).
