Hustle for the J. Cole x PUMA RS-Dreamer ‘Blood, Sweat and Tears’Release: 18 December 2020
Rapper J. Cole is one of the biggest hustlers on the scene right now – an assessment based on the sheer volume of hard work he’s put in to make it to where he is today. And it’s not just his rhymes that he’s constantly worked on – it’s well known that Cole is a die-hard basketball fan who relishes any opportunity to get on the hardwood or blacktop. It just so happens he has a collaborative basketball sneaker with PUMA called the RS-Dreamer. And the coveted ‘Blood, Sweat and Tears’ edition that very overtly honours the hustle is out now, again.,
With a nickname like ‘Blood, Sweat and Tears’, it’s only expected that there’s a lot of red on show. Which is exactly what happens here across the RS-Dreamer’s woven mesh upper. There are a couple of suede overlays for reinforcement, particularly around the forefoot and eyestays. Staying on the lacing system, this model features a distinct secondary string that wraps around the sides and heel counter to provide additional lockdown. After all, these shoes are intended for crossovers and jump shots. On the performance side, a combination of PUMA’s proprietary RS foam and ProFoam compounds in the midsole provide competitive cushioning. Which is matched in the grip department with an icy outsole with plenty of siping.
Don’t give up too much of your blood, sweat and tears by copping the ‘Blood, Sweat and Tears’ now from PUMA.
