Puma XS 7000 OG – 2021

2021 is a year of celebration, sort of. We all understand that global conditions might not be the best as we speak, but around here, we always try to find a way to make you smile, even if it is towards your screen.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, Puma’s DISC Technology originally debuted in 1991. Considered by many sneaker connoisseurs the golden era of footwear, the retro Puma XS 7000 OG merges the best of the past together with the excitement for the future.

Known to be the first laceless sneaker, they were made available in quite limited quantities back then. And rather expensive for the time, for all that matters. This reissue is a 1-to-1 copy of the original, boasting authentic elements, yet re-developed to fit todays’ standards.

For starters, its DISC closure with internal wiring contributes for the utmost fit, allowing for superior performance and on feet comfort. The Puma XS 7000 OG “lacing” system can be micro-adjusted, delivering a splendid and adaptive locked-in feel. Moreover, this low-top silhouette shows off a mesh and synthetic leather upper, retaining its authentic aesthetics. Breezy Spring hues elegantly round off this runner, such as marine blue and lime yellow.

Comfort, as already mentioned, is Puma’s middle name. The XS 7000 comes geared with a padded tongue and collar, as well as a cage and a semi-translucent TPU heel piece for extra support. Underneath is business as usual: IMEVA midsole and rubber outsole, providing snugness and grip for you everyday track or city tasks and needs.

If you casually plan to relive the 90s, the re-edition of the Puma XS 7000 OG is your go-to pair. Get yours online from the 15th of January.
