SOLEBOX X PUMA R698 ‘LIGHT UPS'
Solebox is notorious for collaborations, and in 2009 it seemed like the Berlin store had a new shoe every second week. Each one was a winner in its own right, but when we saw the Puma R698s with their light-up laces, we doffed our peroxided mullets. Featuring the bouncing Trinomic sole as seen on the Sneaker Freaker x Puma 'Blaze of Glory', Solebox dug deep to muster enough '80s touches to sink a pink battleship. However it was the light-up laces (a la LA Gear) that sealed the ridiculous deal – this R698 was only for those that literally like to light up a room!
