Back in 1991, when running freaks were hungry for chunky silhouettes and molded eyelets, the R698 debuted. It was the sort of shoe that had it all. The pinnacle model was packed with cushioning for a plush ride. Other models were slightly varied for pronation and supination – which meant the R698 had something for everyone. Freaks included. This evolution is tweaked but its upper is spot on: techy mesh with soft suede and leather, plus molded eyelets for easy tightening. It has a Trinomic-packed sole for comfort and a graphic upper treatment for style, updated with this season's coastal color palette for a fresh new look. Features: Printed mesh upper with synthetic overlays. Lace closure for a snug fit. Cushioned midsole for comfort. Rubber outsole for grip. PUMA Formstrip at medial and lateral sides. PUMA No. 1 Logo at tongue. PUMA Cat Logo at heel.
