Solebox x Puma R698 The R698 runner is a great performance shoe based on Puma's Trinomic technology. If you ever wore a Puma Disc or the Blaze of Glory, then you will know how comfy these are. The perfect shoe for the night out avoiding random renegade Sneaker scuffers. The Laces are A concept that has been displayed before in demo mode, Remember those flashing laces? Well, they are plastic coated wires, which are active glowing. You press the On Button and the laces start to do their job. They only blink if you walk. So if you stand still, The lights will remain on and stop blinking. Suede and mesh materials were used as most performance sneakers do. Being categorized as A white shoe, the black & steel gray base work well w/ the Subtle Blue and Florescent pink accents. A reported 500 pairs made available isnt the best news being they were released A few days ago, the 18th of April (The day of Solemart). At 1st, they will only be sold instore @t solebox in berlin, but the remaining pairs going online same day or a day later.
As you can see, Puma created A Promo Rug to compliment the R698 release. From what i've heard it is the only one in existence right now and there is no plans for it to be reproduced for retail. Who knows, chances are it will pop up on Ebay sometime in the near future
