Puma is kicking off year two of their Hoops division by introducing their newest basketball silhouette, the Puma Legacy.
The Puma Legacy, inspired by PUMA’s sports heritage and built for the next generation of hoops players. Slated to be the brand’s third silhouette since the return of their hoops division, the Puma Legacy features design elements that borrow from 70 years of sporting heritage – from Pele’s iconic career wearing the PUMA King to Tommie Smith’s silent gesture at the 1968 Mexico Summer Olympics – and incorporates one of PUMA’s most legendary design elements into the product, the T7 stripe.
The Puma Legacy includes the latest performance basketball features – a mid-cut upper with a lacing system design for ultimate lock down and superior ankle protection. An engineered outsole for all the traction and grip you need – mixed with a two toned knit upper blends style and performance through the perfect balance of forefoot protection, breathability, and flexibility. In addition, the most responsive foam in the industry, PUMA Hybrid, is found in the heel in order to give you that added benefit of high energy return and ultimate cushioning. While honoring PUMA’s past, the sneaker focuses on the future where athletes can strive to make their mark and leave their legacy.
Retailing at $100, The Puma Legacy drops online at PUMA.com and in-stores on August 17th.
