Puma Sage is designed for the URBAN RUNNER who doesn't believe in traditional social identifies like gender & race & believes in the power of consciousness to stay focussed in the fast & chaotic urban environment. He embraces a multi faceted perspective & wants to make a statement that reflects his sage like philosophy .PUMA SAGE is aesthetically & functionally inspired by the 7 chakras in the human body & how it interacts with our DNA to help us adapt to the changing environment .The product is more relevant in the post covid world where the need for wellness will penetrate in our lives.
