Roland Corporation has announced another partnership with PUMA, a new TR-808-inspired sneaker, the PUMA RS-100 Roland.
Colors and detailing are inspired by the ‘80s hues of the TR-808 drum machine. ‘Rhythm Composer TR-808, Computer Composer’ is printed on the heel, and the outsole features lines that they say ‘mimic the lights on a synthesizer’.
Roland’s partnership with PUMA kicked off earlier this year with the unveiling of their first sneaker collaboration, PUMA’s RS-0 Roland, below, also inspired by the legendary 808 drum machine:
While the RS-0 Roland is a reboot of PUMA’s ‘80s R-System line of running sneakers, the RS-100 Roland retains a more retro look, but decked in modern materials.
