PUMA’s teamed up with the sneaker aficionados of Paris, Snkr Adkt & Deone for this limited run on the beloved RS100 runner. Deone and Thomas Giorgetti (aka. Snkr Adkt) are two graphic designers living in Paris, but they are better known throughout the globe as the ambassadors of sneaker culture in France.
Deone and Thomas both started collecting sneakers in the late 1980’s, made some worldwide sneaker hunts in the mid 90’s and now have over 700 pairs of rare kicks to show for. In 2003 Snkr Adkt started “Lil TYLER”, France’s first publication dedicated to sneakers.
In 2005, Deone and Snkr Adkt reunited in London and were presented with this opportunity to collaborate on one of PUMA‘s most iconic styles, the RS100. A takedown of the RS Computer, an 80‘s runnning shoe with electronic components that measured running performance.
This project pays tribute to Deone and Snkr Adkt‘s street vision and all the French cats who sported runners in the late 1980‘s, a classic touch in the European way of hip hop.
Limited numbers available at Hype Pitt St (Sydney) & Prime Ackland St. (Melbourne)
