UPDATE: Dropping globally this Saturday for the heads outside of Japan and US.
Puma have asked Ronnie Fieg to run wild on their archive, letting him dream up a new take on the R698. Raising the roof on the classic big cat sneak, the ankle collar attains mid-top status and encases a Neoprene bootie. Fieg's favoured toebox colour blocking technique comes into play here, while we see something new with an intriguing spray fade on the midsole. This new model will drop at the Sakura Project pop-up at United Arrows in Tokyo on March 20th, which is being hosted by Kith NYC.
