Roland and Puma have teamed up for a second time to design a pair of TR-808 drum machine-themed trainers

Roland and Puma have collaborated on a second design of Roland TR-808-themed trainers.

The RS-100 follows on from an earlier run of the RS-0 back in April. Like that trainer, the RS-100 also features a red, black and yellow colourway inspired by the '80s drum machine. Branding of both companies can be found on the shoe's tongue while the heel comes complete with the words "Rhythm Composer TR-808, Computer Composer" printed on it.

The shoes, which you can see above, will be made available at the price of $100 from August 8, which is often marked by Roland fans as 808 Day.
