PRODUCT STORYThe all-new RS 9.8 is inspired by new frontiers and galaxies – by people who defy societal rules and the laws of physics. The name RS 9.8 speaks to 9.8 m/s2, which is the approximate speed of gravitational acceleration near the Earth’s surface. The suede upper is embellished with metallic flashes, while the ultra-cushioned Running System in the midsole provides smooth comfort.
Future and retro collide in our Futro designs. We've stripped down shoes from our archives and rebuilt them to create future icons – grounded in history, and evolved for a new world.
