Back in the ‘80s, Ralph Sampson was a basketball legend. First pick of the NBA Draft in ’83, Rookie of the Year in ’84, he towered over the rest of the players and elevated the game to unprecedented heights. Signing Sampson took Puma to the next level in the basketball world – and in return, the brand created a customized kick just for him. The designer constructed a super light sneaker  with his signature at the side, 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. Today, over 30 years later, Puma is bringing back the OG mid silhouette in honor of a Hall of Famer whose legend still impacts the game today.
