Puma Revives 80s Sneaker Classic
“Footwear company Puma has revived its RS-Computer Shoe, a classic sneaker from 1986 that — at the time of its launch — included sophisticated hardware targeted at athletes and enthusiasts,” according to SlashGear.
“Though the technology has long been made obsolete by modern alternatives, the design itself retains a certain retro appeal and the model enjoys a number of fans. Puma’s upgraded version retains the same classic design.”
It’s certainly not the first retro sneaker design from the 80s to make its way into the modern day. Companies like Nike continuously bring back running classics from the decade and have even gone further to create silhouettes that were simply futuristic ideas such as the Marty McFly’s that release a fe years back.
