Sports company PUMA unleashes the Replicat-X 1.8 Pirelli, a new sneaker with a quick lacing system which is inspired by one of the most iconic turbo engines in motorsport shistory to take the track to the street.
The Replicat-X 1.8 Pirelli takes on the ferocity and form of a modern supercar, inspired by motorsports heritage, to transform it into the fastest footwear in the entire collection.
The build up upper offers more layering with a booty construction, which makes the Replicat-X 1.8 Pirelli comfortable for a stroll around the track. The body kit of the shoe features an “oversized” wraparound full rubber outsole with Pirelli’s unique CINTURATO Blue tread pattern used to generate maximum traction during wet races. This gives it a distinctive, racing-inspired look, sits low to the ground and has an even more comfortable molded sock liner.
A quick lacing system provides faster acceleration to kick off the day without worrying about tying your shoes. Fast as a super car, the upper features a perforated mash vamp, with lateral mesh panels for breathability, providing the perfect fit to own the road.
The PUMA Replicat-X 1.8 Pirelli will be available in stores right now in PUMA Black-Luminous Purple-Sunny Lime, PUMA White-Peacoat-Limepunch and Gray Violet-Sunny Lime-Palace Blue.
