The Ronnie Fieg and PUMA RF698 Mid is set to release its latest rendition: the R698 “Sakura” pack as part of Fieg’s Tokyo Sakura Project. This “Sakura” color-way features a white/merlot color scheme – covering the entire toe area and then fading into white. Other details showcases hints of a light pink shading throughout the back end of the shoe. Collaboration was inspired by the cherry blossom flower seen on Prunus (a genus of trees and shrubs) particularly the Prunus serrulata (aka the Japanese Cherry) which is also called “Sakura” by the Japanese. The Ronnie Fieg x PUMA R698 “Sakura” is set to release exclusively at United Arrows & Sons in Tokyo on March 20, 2015.
