Puma and Polaroid Announce Partnership

  • Thursday, April 12, 2018

Global sports brand PUMA and consumer electronics powerhouse Polaroid announced their partnership today. The collaboration creates a fusion between PUMA’s all new RS-0 sneaker and design hints from the iconic Polaroid OneStep analog instant camera.

This milestone collaboration comes at a time when both brands are experiencing a cultural resurgence. PUMA has launched their latest RS-0, a reboot of their classic 80’s Running System (RS) line, with influential and creative brands, including Polaroid. These brands foster innovation through design, style, technology, and more, with each brand telling their own story of reinvention.

For Polaroid, this exciting collaboration is a continued celebration of their 80-year anniversary. While their heritage is deeply rooted in instant photography, the brand continues to create innovative, new technologies to deliver instant gratification and connect the world through sharing.

Both brands unveiled the RS-0 Polaroid sneaker at PUMA’s RS-0 launch event in Berlin, a city that epitomizes “old-meets-new”, a perfect setting to reveal the contemporary sneaker with a nod to the past.

The RS-0 Polaroid sneaker is inspired by the game-changing Polaroid OneStep instant camera. The sneaker features a premium white leather upper, micro perf vents, 6mm flat, reflective laces and the iconic Polaroid Color Spectrum graphic on the heel. PUMA and Polaroid branding can be found on the tongue label, footbed and outsole.
