PUMA has been busy on the basketball front with its new Sky Modern model, but it hasn’t forgotten about the Sportstyle division either as the RS-X³ is set to drop in a two-shoe “Move” pack. Using bold gradient fades, the “Move” pack offers “PUMA Black/Etherial Blue” and “Limestone/Gray Violet” colorways, both made of premium materials.
Each pair puts forth a mesh upper, equipped with wavy suede overlays and a signature PUMA Formstripe. RS-X series badges are present on the tongue, and midsoles offer a chunky look to compliment the upper’s stacked style. Although the construction may be identical on both pairs, the hues are vastly divergent.
“PUMA Black/Ethereal Blue” starts with a bright blue shade on the toebox before giving way to stark black on the forefoot and steel gray plus soft khaki on the heel and midsole, respectively. Meanwhile, “Limestone/Gray Violet” uses a color scheme akin to RHUDE‘s earth-toned PUMA collaborations, offering a full medium gray forefoot and light gray midfoot. Black detailing is present around the throat and heel, with the only gradient arriving on the midsole — which fades from gray to khaki.
