With Christmas just around the corner, I am feeling nostalgic and reminiscing about my childhood when my older brother would pull out his Polaroid camera and snap photos during the family gatherings. Nothing could beat the instant photo that slid out of that camera for everyone to see. Memories were instantly captured and guests could even leave with their very own Polaroid picture to remember the event.
The Polaroid instant film camera was a huge hit in the 80’s. Polaroid made instant film photography so much fun. Since Polaroid film has started being made again over the past few years and the Polaroid camera has been revamped into today’s modern instant film camera like the OneStep, the collaboration between Puma and Polaroid couldn’t be more timely with the Puma RX-O X Polaroid Sneaker.
My husband Gary is a Polaroid photographer and he also upcycles vintage Polaroid cameras via his upcycledclassics.com shop, cleans and repairs them, paints them in all sorts of bright and bold color block colorways so, being the fans of Polaroid and Puma that we are, getting our hands on the RS-O X Polaroid sneaker was great!!
The Polaroid RS-O X sneaker is a very high quality, incredibly comfortable and the cushioning is superb. The marshmallow color is subtle and goes with just about any outfit. The styling is spot-on with the iconic rainbow colors of the Polaroid color spectrum on the shoe tongue, there is leather and suede overlay, reflective details are also present and they represent the flash of the Polaroid cameras. The attention to detail on this shoe is amazing and it has already become a full-fledged collectors item. I am so excited for Christmas and all the instant Polaroid camera pictures we’ll be taking and capturing this season!!
Spending time today at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) and I’ve got comfort and color on my mind. I knew right away I would be wearing my Puma RS-X Bold sneakers with a color block top. SFMOMA is full of inspiration and delight and I wanted to be filled with that vibe today.
The RS-X Bold comes in at least 3 colorways and today I chose the Black/ Andean Toucan/ Orange Popsicle sneaker. I have very picky feet when it comes to shoes and I just can’t stop talking about how much I love the Puma RS-X. This is one of the most comfortable sneakers I have ever worn and I can’t get enough of all the colorways Puma is releasing. I love color and comfort!!
The RS-X dates to the 1980s and was a running system shoe, which Puma has since revamped with their innovative tech and fashion-forward style for today’s market. The RS-X provides extreme cushion making it one of the most comfortable sneakers I have ever worn. The RS-X bold is made of a black mesh upper with leather and rubber overlays in lots of bold color block colors, a chunky design and features the PUMA name right on the side. Even the soles of the shoes pop so you leave a trail of color wherever you go!!
I don’t know another shoe that can compliment a priceless Roy Lichtenstein pop art painting or a stunning Marilyn Monroe pop art screen print by Andy Warhol, but these shows sure do!! I’ve already snapped up so many Puma RS-X sneakers and can’t wait to share pics, styling and reviews on upcoming posts. Hurry on over to Puma and snap up your RS-X sneakers in your favorite colorways before they sell out because once they are gone, they are gone!!
