Though many take convergence and Digital Lifestyle Integration for granted as an expected norm of the 21st Century, during the Mid 1980s, over 25 years ago, Puma created the unthinkable, the “space age” $200 Puma Running RS Computer Sneaker. Truly ahead of its time, the RS Computer Sneaker featured a pedometer in the right heel of the sneaker that was synced with an Apple IIe computer in order to transfer a number of personal running details, this was, of course, after the user had installed the necessary software on to their 48K Apple IIe via a 5 1/4 inch floppy drive. As they say, the more things change, the more they stay the same…
Over 25 years later, Puma recently released their ode to their own forward thinking Puma RS Computer Sneaker through the computer-less “RS Computer” Puma RS-100. The “RS Computers” feature a White Leather/White Patent upper with 3M accents, Magenta and Cyan contrast stitching, mother board/digital circuit board detailing throughout, and a Holographic running man on the heel tab. The “RS Computer” Puma RS-100s are available at select Puma List Accounts in a released amount of 1000 pairs.
