Global sports brand PUMA is gearing up to launch a trainer design inspired by the iconic video game brand Tetris.
This new collaboration will see PUMA and The Tetris Company work together to give PUMA’s latest RS silhouette a retro, video game makeover.
Fittingly, both brands introduced products in the ’80s that are now considered cultural icons. Originally designed and programmed by the Russian game designer Alexey Pajitnov in 1984, the Tetris game rose to fame when it was introduced on the Nintendo Game Boy in 1989.
Meanwhile, the RS (Running System) sneaker originated in 1986 as a running sneaker.
‘For PUMA, this enriches its ongoing stories of reinvention by partnering with influential and creative brands that push culture forward through innovation in design, style and technology,’ read a statement from the company.
‘Embracing the future and honouring the past, PUMA revived the RS silhouette and built it from the ground up.’
The PUMA x TETRIS RS iteration releases worldwide on October 2019.
