PUMA launched a Brazil-inspired lifestyle range at the end of March in celebration of the hosts of the 2014 World Cup. Included in the collection is the PUMA RS 100 Brasil. This is Football Fashion’s World Exclusive look at the Samba-infused version iconic 1980s running shoe that has survived the test of time to become a popular lifestyle shoe among the retro-loving sportswear crowd.
A state of the art trainer when it was first released over twenty years ago, the 2014 version of the PUMA RS 100 is still a comfortable shoe for leisurely activities and even cross training. Definitely designed to catch the eye, the Brasil version of the shoe uses a colorway in the South American soccer power’s famous green and yellow with splashes of white and black thrown in (that should make PUMA athlete Usain Bolt happy since all the colors of the Jamaican flag are represented on the shoe).
