Although it’s undeniable that the adidas Micropacer was the first computer sneaker when it debuted in 1994, the original Puma RS 100 Digital stakes it’s claim as the first sneaker that enabled users to upload their data to the Apple II via game port.

Released in low quantities of 1,000 pairs to specialty “List” accounts worldwide, now is your chance to own a little bit of the originator.
Also new to the scene is the black brown / gold / blue / mustard RS 100 Thai. The colorway does a good job of incorporating a bit of blue into an otherwise rather earthy looking sneaker.
Both are available now at Overkill Shop.
