Global sports brand PUMA and renowned Japanese manufacturer of electronic musical instruments, Roland, unboxed today a second silhouette that completes the RS sneaker pack ? the RS-100 Roland.
The RS-100 Roland follows the story of reinvention ? inspired by the past, shaped by the colorful histories of both brands and reimagined for the future. While the RS-0 Roland is a complete reboot of the R-System, the RS-100 Roland retains a more retro look but decked in modern materials.
The RS-100 Roland?s upper features a vibrant orange suede Formstrip with white reflective edges amidst a combination of white-red pebble leather, black ripstop nylon panels and yellow suede. PUMA and Roland branding can be found on the tongue label, footbed and the anodized metal hangtag. ?Rhythm Composer TR-808, Computer Composer? is printed on the heel. A PUMA and Roland logo is printed on the footbed while the outsole features lines that mimic the lights on a sound synthesizer. All colors and detailing represent 80?s retro hues found on a Roland TR-808 drum machine.
Unveiled last Spring, the RS-0 Roland, also inspired by the game-changing TR-808 drum machine, features premium leather black upper, micro perf vents, 6mm flat, reflective laces, reflective midsole details and signature TR-808 colors ? red, orange and yellow, on the Formstrip. Familiar notes like ?Rhythm Composer? and ?Bass Drum? accent the midsole while the orange hue continues to the translucent rubber outsole. PUMA and Roland branding can be found on the tongue label, footbed and the anodized metal hangtag.
Both the PUMA RS-0 and PUMA RS-100 Roland sneakers drop globally on August 8th, internationally known as #808DAY. The iconic TR-808 drum machine is celebrated for its legendary status and credited by many as the spark that lit the flame of hip-hop music worldwide.
