Sneaker Freaker’s Epic TRINOMIC SYSTEM-INFORMATIONEN Book is Out Now!
PUMA have entrusted Sneaker Freaker to document and deliver the epic tale of TRINOMIC, the brand's innovative honeycomb-shaped cushioning system that padded out the Big Cat’s most advanced sneaker designs throughout the 1990s and beyond.
TRINOMIC SYSTEM-INFORMATIONEN is an updated and expanded version of a magazine retrospective from Issue 46 that is now a comprehensive 160-page hardcover title packed with everything you never knew about PUMA’s premier running, basketball and tennis tech.
Sneaker Freaker PUMA TRINOMIC Book
The archival adventure begins with the birth of TRINOMIC, before detouring into associated PUMA tech such as the DISC closure system and an update in the form of CELL cushioning.
Delving deeper into the three-pointed logo revealed a Bermuda Triangle of hidden gems, long-lost documentation and intelligence sourced from the Far East. Piecing together the final puzzle required multiple visits to the PUMA Archive as well as painstaking translations of JP catalogues.
Extracted from this research is the most comprehensive collection of PUMA TRINOMIC models ever assembled. Formstripe favourites like the XT-2, R698 and Blaze of Glory revisit the limelight, but it's obscurities like the DISC System Voltaire and DISC System Calgary – that literally haven't been visible for decades! – that will melt minds.
Bringing the TRINOMIC story into the modern era, the series of PUMA collaborations from the 2010s that repositioned the retro tech are rounded up, recalling unique efforts from the likes of KITH, Bodega and, of course, Sneaker Freaker's own series of shark-inspired Blazes. The red carpet is also rolled out for the next generation of TRINOMIC, which includes the TRC Blaze and TRC Blaze Court.
Unfortunately this is one of those infuriating money-can’t-buy creations. However, the silver lining is that a few copies will be available via a giveaway on Sneaker Freaker's Instagram channel! Check out how to score a copy below.
