Inspired by PUMA’s sports heritage and built for the next generation of hoops players, we have a detailed look and review on the new PUMA Legacy ’68. The brand’s third hoops silhouette since the re-launch of the basketball division in October.
The PUMA Legacy features design elements that borrow from its 70 years of sports 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.
PUMA’s latest basketball shoe also includes its 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, what PUMA considers 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.
The PUMA Legacy retails at $100 and is available now at DicksSportingGoods.com.
