Puma Ralph Sampson

Ralph Sampson was one of basketballs biggest names in the early 80´s, winning three »College Player Of The Year« before being selected first overall in the 1983 draft. For a 7-foot 4-inch player it wasn’t easy to find the perfect sneaker for his numerous games. When he got to the NBA there were a few brands to offer him a signature model but Puma swooped in and took it on.

The designer constructed a super light sneaker for optimal levels of speed and agility, echoing the technical needs of Ralph Sampson´s legendary NBA run. The shoes were also meant to serve the physical needs of Sampson and his size 17. After 30 years the Puma Ralph Sampson celebrates its comeback and delights with an authentic vintage look on the courts and the streets.
