Roland and Puma have collaborated on a new TR-808-inspired sneaker.

Originally designed in the ‘80s, the RS–0 relaunch sees Roland take on the classic sneaker as it's given a new sleek, black colourway complete with accent colours in line with the iconic drum machine’s trigger buttons. On the heel, a subtle nod to the machine’s origins is noticeable with the inclusion of a “Rhythm Composer” graphic
