It goes without saying that the SLIPSTREAM has become a staple sneaker in most people's closets since PUMA re-issued the model.
The first model of the SLIPSTREAM was a basketball shoe born in 1987 as a successor to the SKY LX. It became an iconic sneaker silhouette, favored by basketball players on the courts for its performance, stability, and cushioning. Off-court, it made its way to the streets, finding a following among sneaker connoisseurs and the subculture generation of hip-hop dance crews for its unique design.
Even with a bunch of GR colourways and collab releases with the likes of MCM, BEAST, and so forth—PUMA continues to let the model shine with different makeups.
The “Slipstream” combines its basketball DNA with a clean rework. The sneaker’s tooling and upper have been given a more contemporary feel while the midsole has been sculpted with updated overlay panels and a remodeled collar construction.
A white leather operates as the base, while black suede supported by varsity green trim hits the formstrip. PUMA rounds off the design with a white midsole, full varsity green outer and its signature branding throughout the shoe.
Pair it with shorts or some jeans, or a dress it doesn’t matter the SLIPSTREAM always looks good.
