Puma Ralph Sampson OG Sneakers (Heritage Basketball Collection)

Puma is trying to get a foothold back in the basketball shoe game. Pun intended. As we posted earlier this week, the shoe company invested a lot of their efforts into a DeMarcus Cousins collaboration that resulted in the Uproar model; their first entry featuring an NBA player in some time.

Now Puma is looking back and banking on some of their deep hoops history. Today, Puma relaunched their heritage basketball collection with another 4-time NBA all-star center. The Ralph Sampson was the signature basketball shoe for its namesake.

Puma is celebrating the legacy of the former #1 pick, basketball Hall-of-Famer and Houston Rocket by bringing back his The Ralph Sampson from the PUMA Archives in both low and mid-top models.

While Cousins-inspired Spectras recalled the 1990’s the Ralph Sampson brings us back into the 1980’s court style, designs and feels with a full leather upper featuring Ralph Sampson’s signature and the classic PUMA logo.  Officially called the Ralph Sampson Mid OG Sneakers, they available in one colorway: the Puma white-gray violet-peacoat and retail for $90. The style of this retro kicks are such that they can be worn on the court or off.
