‘Takumi’ means ‘artisan’ in Japanese, so even before you see Puma’s latest round of drops from under this top-tier umbrella, you know they’re going to be good. Add in a bit of seasonal timeliness and the bar moves up to ‘great’, as the Ralph Sampson signature hightop and a rarely seen lowtop version get treated to premium earthy materials in time for cold weather. The Puma RS High gets another round as two gum-soled nubuck drops meet up with two each nubuck/fur-lined and pony hair/leather-lined First Round Lows, and you can see each pair individually after the jump below. These Takumi Pumas haven’t been making it to US retailers, so stick with Sneaker News for updates and let us know your experience with importing a pair.
