Ronnie Fieg x Puma R698 & RF698 Mid “Sakura”

By Stefanie Ario on March 19, 2015



The latest collaboration of Puma with the notorious sneaker designer Ronnie Fieg is nothing but perfect for this Spring/ Summer season. The R698 & RF698 models have as inspiration the striking sakura cherry blossom season in Tokyo.

Being first released in the 80’s as a runner, the shoe is characterized by a delicate branding, mesh and suede upper and a chunky Trinomic sole.

The RF698 has the same concept as R698 with an addition of a boot like mid-top cut, and uses instead as shades burgundy and navy for the upper and a faded and speckled midsole.

The sneakers were exclusively created for KITH’s Sakura Project and their release will be not later than 20th of March 2015, solely at KITH Tokyo pop-up within the United Arrows & Sons.
