The Puma Court Rider is the latest from Puma Hoops and is the shoe the now injured, potential rookie of the year LaMelo Ball wears in the NBA. The Puma Court Rider made our list of the best Puma basketball shoe available in 2022.
LaMelo typically rocks a Charlotte Hornets colorway (which we hope also releases) but the colorway we have in hand is called Twofold. Click play above to see Chris’ unfiltered, extremely blunt thoughts on this wallet-friendly new model, which made it to our best budget basketball list for the year. The shoe lacks some cushion, but if you want to boost their cushioning, a great option for that is Move insoles.
