The RS-X-efekt is a new sneaker with an interesting history. In this blog, we provide some more information along with styling tips.
The RS-X Efekt is part of the RS (Running System) family, which dates back to 1984. At that time, wearing sneakers casually was still a new concept. Previously, sneakers were only meant for athletes, and it was a no-go to wear them as everyday shoes. This makes the shoe one of the first "wearable" sneakers. The RS technology from the 80’s is still used decades later. This ensures that the sneaker has good cushioning throughout the sole. Additionally, the shoes are partially made of mesh, which provides good air circulation and keeps the feet dry. So, the shoes are also fine to wear to the gym.
Starting in 2018, this RS family continued to grow with different models. Each model has its own special touch, such as the RS-Dreamer, a collab between Puma and rapper J Cole. The goal was to design a shoe that captured J Cole's childhood dream of becoming an NBA basketball player. The RS Efekt takes a different path. This futuristic shoe is for everyone and not aimed at one specific group. Nevertheless, the shoe is anything but ordinary, featuring bold hues and unconventional shapes.
You might think that combining the sneakers with an outfit would be a challenge due to the futuristic shape and striking color blockings, but it's not too difficult. Here are three tips for styling these sneakers:
1.Casual fit: Menzo has styled his outfit with calm colors so that the sneakers stand out well. With this combination, you have a casual fit topped off with a small eye-catcher, making it suitable for multiple occasions in your daily life. Menzo is wearing the granola alpine snow colorway here. This sneaker has a striking color combination that can be combined well with earth tones. For example, combine this sneaker with beige pants and a white T-shirt for a casual look. The sedate grey navy colorway has a more subdued appearance and is fun to style with darker colors and a pair of straight-legged jeans. Combine this sneaker with black pants and a sweater for a cool and comfortable look.
2.Chill outfit: As you read above, the shoe is designed for more comfort and freedom of movement. This means you can combine these Puma's well with a tracksuit to go for a walk in nature or lounge on the couch with your friends.
3.Colormatching outfit: A method that always works well when choosing a stylish outfit is color matching. You ensure that certain colors of the sneaker are reflected in your outfit, making the whole outfit fit together well. For example, the "frosted ivory black" colorway can be combined well with black jeans and a beige T-shirt. This brings out the detail color of the shoe and reflects it in your outfit.
