Puma R698 OG X BWGH ‘Bluefield’ Review
Made in collaboration with Parisian brand Brooklyn We Go Hard, the Puma R698 OG X BWGH 'Bluefield' boasts a lovely mix of different hues of the color blue from dark to light plus a robust white sole. Inspired by Mark Rothko, an American artist known for his abstract works, this iteration of the R698 silhouette features a suede and mesh upper, chenille fabric that runs across the formstripe logo, all sitting atop Puma’s Trinomic rubber sole. Puma branding is on the tongue and heel, together with BWGH branding.

In this iteration of the R698, Puma continues its collaboration with Brooklyn We Go Hard, this time highlighting and incorporating abstract art from the works of American artist Mark Rothko. Featuring a warm blend of blue hues atop a full-on white outsole, the Puma R698 OG X BWGH ‘Bluefield’ is the ultimate handiwork that encapsulates the connection between sports and arts.
