PRODUCT STORYBack in the ‘80s, Ralph Sampson was a basketball legend. First pick of the NBA Draft in ’83, Rookie of the Year in ’84, he towered over the rest of the players and elevated the game to unprecedented heights. Signing Sampson took PUMA to the next level in the basketball world – and in return, we created a customized kick just for him.
Today, over 30 years later, PUMA is bringing back the OG silhouette in honor of a Hall of Famer whose legend still impacts the game today. With a sleek new design, the Ralph Sampson Hoops comes in a low and mid-top version for a new generation of bball fans who care about off-court style as much as on-court performance.
