Puma - Trinomic XS 850 Plus

Landing in store tomorrow (Saturday 15th March) is Puma's great Trinomic XS 850 Plus. Originally released back in 1992, Puma have resurrected the Trinomic XS850 for a Spring/Summer 2014 release as a part of its newly-established “CREAM” program. Noteworthy for its Trinomic technology of honeycomb-like clear rubber hexagonal cells – providing a perfect combination of cushioning, flexibility, and stability thanks to their ability to collapse and expand – the 2014 retro of the early ’90s trail shoe retains the neon accents and abstract prints of the era in the form of its neon pink accents and signature heel splatter. Constructed of mesh and suede for both breathability and durability, the CREAM edition of the XS850 OG drops tomorrow at Fat Buddha Store, so be quick to grab yourself a pair before these go. You can check out some images from Puma's Cream program below. For a chance to wins a pair of Puma Trinomic XS 850 Plus, head over to our Instag
