Error messages are nothing to be romanticised. My cousin once lost half a tooth when my GameCube decided to cake its pants one summer. Now, as we fling ourselves into the ‘next-gen’ nausea of dodgy voice controls and hand gestures, the tech only seems to infuriate with more frequency.
PUMA’s now attempting to trigger us all with their latest RS-O colourways. Set to drop in July, the ‘Game Error’ and ‘Restart’ colourways feature all the kinds of horrible flashbacks from vintage error screens.
The ‘Game Error’ features a pixelated Formstripe dragged across the shoes uppers, while you can almost hear the white noise on the midsole. We’ve got programming code on the tongue, and a burst of radiant pink and purple to add to the retro vibe. For the ‘Restart’, PUMA have implemented a white mesh base, with uppers dominated by all the black and white spots seen on a TV screen with no signal.
Both PUMA RS-Os will retail for $120. Get the ‘Game Error’ message on July 28 before hitting ‘Restart’ two weeks later on July 13. Cop them over at Puma.com
