PUMA AND SOLEBOX PRESENTS THE XS850 ADVENTURER PACK
24.06.2015 | PUMA
Sneakers and jelly beans? I hear you say… Sometimes the craziest combinations have the simplest origins and that is the story of how Germany’s Solebox founder Hikmet developed an unusual addiction to Jelly Belly Berry Blue Jelly beans.
Take your mind back to a time where The Terminator came back the second time and Tarantino was king of the cult movies, this is where we find very resourceful European Sneakerheads taking frequent adventures to the United States to source rare, vintage or the latest in sneaker design, that were not available anywhere in Europe. What these Sneakerheads stumbled upon was that by selling exclusive imports they could turn the passion for sneakers into a viable successful business and in some cases this laid the foundation for them to open actual sneaker stores.
Today we find PUMA highlighting a new iteration of its slick vintage runner throwback, the XS850. The inspiration for the XS850 Adventurer pack pulls from Hikmet’s personal adventures in the United States, hunting down and bringing back the rarest & raddest kicks to Berlin, where apart from his sneaker addiction he also developed a love for a true American candy treats, Jelly Belly Berry Blue beans, they’re frikin delicious.
Nicknamed the “Adventurer” pack, and drawing on Hikmet’s love of Jelly Belly Berry Blue beans, rendered on PUMA’s current game changer, the Trinomic XS850 model in two distinct colours: a tonal grey pair, and its black and grey counterpart. The sneakers sport an identical design structure that features a mesh toe box, suede body, and a white midsole. A Solebox insignia placed on the back heel arch, and a digital camouflage back heel tab complete the Solebox x PUMA XS850 “Adventurer” pack
The Trinomic XS850 Adventurer Pack. Will be available at PUMA Select Cape Town and Johannesburg retailing at R1 900.
