PHANTACi has been one of Taiwan’s go-to sneaker spots for the better part of a decade, but now the boutique is making 10 years in the footwear business official with a special collaboration with the head-turning retro running mode, the Puma R698.
Starting this year, PHANTACi has decided to restard from scratch by inviting a number of high-quality respected brands to collaborate for the upcoming 2017 release slate. The Puma R698 utilizes two different colorways. The first is an inviting, clean white with accents of metallic silver stars on the heel. An inspirational “Never give up” lands on the vibrant pink outsole for a flashy finish. Also available is a microperforated black leather rendition featuring timbled accents for a truly one-of-a-kind aesthetic. The same metallic stars are featured on a speckled heel panel while subdued accents of pink hit on the legendary Trinomic midsole cushion system. A more traditional icy blue outsole features the same words.
Check out more detailed teaser shots of the upcoming PHANTACi Puma R698 collaboration and we’ll keep you updated on a potential stateside release in the near future right here on Sneaker News.
