Last year marked the special reissue of PUMA‘s Trinomic XT1 and XT2 retro runner. Headed by designers Ron Perkins and Yoshi Yoshimura, the pair walks us through the significance of the Trinomic cushioning technology from the ’90s and the challenges of bringing back footwear designs that have been out of the public eye for over 20 years. Shot at its Boston and London headquarters, the short offers a glimpse at PUMA’s upcoming Trinomic releases for 2014. Perkins even dissects the original packaging of the sneaker and the reason behind tapping the iconic green shoe box for the reissue. Be sure to peep the visual above and see what Perkins has to say about one of his favorite silhouettes below.

“When this shoe first appeared in our catalogue in 1991, it was a game-changer for PUMA. We didn’t make shoes like this. I think that everybody on the team agreed that this was a great silhouette, so why can’t we do this now? It’s perfect timing to bring it back.” - Ron Perkins, PUMA Senior Footwear Designer.
