This season, sports brand Puma joins forces with up-and-coming Seoul-based streetwear brand thisisneverthat for a sneaker pack inspired by the diversity and contrast of the Seoul landscape. For this occasion, the Trinomic XT2 Plus gets dibs on the re-issue.
The Trinomic XT2 Plus shows off the same neutral performance qualities of a trainer as it did when it hit the ground running back in 1991. Equipped with Trinomic motion control technology, it has an outsole geared for shock and energy absorption, enhanced by Trinomic inserts for extra forefoot and heel cushioning. The matched 90s lightweight materials include semi-open air meshes, soft brushed micro-fibres and plush engineered textiles in the collar lining, providing breathability and a formed-fit, whilst the integrated lacing system and heel clip offer stability and a quick, solid lace-up.
The PUMA x thisisneverthat Trinomic XT2 Plus “Night River” in a black-white colorway is a tribute to the Han River – the enormous yet calm artery that keeps the city alive. The “Woods” on the other hand is a representation of the how nature is assimilated within the skyscrapers and highways in the city, featuring a play on camouflage pattern and moss green/red hints
The PUMA X thisisneverthat collaboration is due for release on March 14th at End, Footpatrol, Hanon, Oki-ni and Well Gosh
