Paris' BLACKRAINBOW's latest issue focused on running, but from a totally different perspective than you'll find throughout the rest of the sneaker business. The series focused on all those runners around the world who are running to save lives, including their own, in the military. Featured in that issue is the new PUMA R698 Pack, which is a key part of their tribute to this special group of runners, creating two versions of the iconic runner, both dressed in a green and brown woodland camo-inspired treatment, accented with sky blue details and a two-toned sole to complement the upper. Scheduled to drop at the beginning of April 2013, sneakerheads will have their choice of the R698 OG or the R698 LTWT sitting on a trinomic or lightweight midsole, respectively. The initial April 5 release will be limited to BLACKRAINBOW's Paris location followed by wider release at select Puma retailers beginning April 12.
