The popularly known “hello moto” trademark has being brought to live in the retro fashion circle as PUMA introduces the RS-X Tech sneaker as well as the exclusive RS-X Tech Motorola sneaker in partnership with telecom giant Motorola to combine technology and sport to form a formidable lifestyle.
For 90 years, Motorola has pioneered innovation – be it delivering messages from the moon to creating the first mobile phone or developing the first 5G-upgradable smartphone, moto z3 with 5G moto mod. This collaboration brings together two cultural reinventors: one through sport and style, the other through tech and innovation for a nostalgia-packed collection, inspired by Motorola’s mobile phone designs.
PUMA x MOTOROLA CAPSULE COLLECTION DROPS IN RETRO STYLE
Inspired by Motorola’s mobile phone designs, RS-X Tech Motorola highlights specific cues that celebrate the mobile phones of the 80s, 90s and 2000s. With textures on the outer sole that are reminiscent of the mobile phone’s keypad, the sneakers are decked with “hellomoto” badging on the side and MOTO batwing subtly placed on heel badge. Made for a new generation of hustlers, it drops in a futuristic colourway of PUMA Silver – Sodalite Blue.
Continuing with this theme across season appropriate apparel like a tee, track top and shorts, the collection features Motorola colourways from the 80s and quirky graphics that represent different milestones in the evolution of communication – from pagers to brick phones followed by QWERTY keypad phones.
“We are excited to partner with a brand that is equally committed to push innovation and culture forward,” said Adam Petrick, PUMA’s Global Director for Brand & Marketing. “Together with Motorola, we are taking the sneaker game to the next level with a brand-new iteration of the 80s RS style designed with tech-inspired details.”
“With over 90 years of innovation, Motorola has created some of the most beloved mobile phones that defined moments in fashion and pop culture.” said Renata Altenfelder, Motorola’s Global Brand Marketing Lead. “This collaboration with PUMA celebrates how style and technology continually inspire one another.”
