Another perfect addition to your sneaker wardrobe.
This latest offering comes dressed in Puma White-Puma Black-Light Sand colour scheme. Design-wise, the leather covers the upper, while the PUMA Formstrip hits the medial and lateral sides. A clean White midsole atop a tricoloured rubber outsole + PUMA Cat Logos wraps up the design.
PUMA’s next-generation Slipstream sneaker brings ‘80s basketball to the modern-day. Without compromising its performance roots, the Slipstream is a court classic reinvented.
The origins of the silhouette date back to the Slipstream, a high-top basketball shoe born in 1987 as a successor to the SKY LX. Presented as a performance model that was “engineered for the serious player,” according to advertisements at the time, the Slipstream was a pioneer for its innovative material makeups, which featured embellishments like faux snakeskin, leather, and faux fur.
A retro program in 2002 reintroduced Slipstream models like the Slipstream Snake and Slipstream Beast into the Japanese market, to appease an appetite for overstated, “more is more” sneaker designs. Subsequently, the Slipstream was created in special made-in-Japan versions.
Now, 35 years after it was first released, PUMA pens the latest chapter in the saga of the Slipstream. This summer, the storied Slipstream makes its return in a plethora of colorways and makeups. Re-imagined today, 2022’s evolution of the Slipstream combines the basketball DNA with an undeniably clean and modern look. The silhouette's tooling and upper are given a contemporary feel via a sculpted midsole, updated overlay panels, and a remodeled collar construction.
