PUMA Hoops Expand Basketball Lineup with Court RiderRelease: 13 April 2021
Since reviving their basketball division in 2019, PUMA have been hitting the hardwood with plenty of fire. Last year saw the Big Cat sign J. Cole and LaMelo Ball to their roster, the former having debuted the RS Dreamer last year. Now, the youngest Ball brother is fronting the campaign for PUMA Hoops’ latest release: the Court Rider.
The first basketball sneaker from the Rider family, the Court Rider employs a bold approach to colour, as used on its brethren like the Future and Style Riders. Its debut colourway pairs a white and grey base with sky blue, juicy tangerine, and searing lime.
Of course, it doesn’t skip on the tech specs either. A 5/8 cut provides both support and flexibility, while cushy-as Rider foam brings bounce to the midsole. Down below, the high-abrasion outsole ensures sure footing up and down the court.
Pros like LaMelo and Katie Lou Samuelson will be lacing the Court Rider this season, or lace ‘em up yourself, from April 13.
