PUMA Hoops has added a new member to its ever-growing performance basketball family: the Sky. A modified version of PUMA‘s original Sky from the ’80s, this model adds updated flair to a classic high-top basketball style. It also serves as an apt follow-up to the Sky LX Mid Lux, a modern-day lifestyle shoe that made its way to market in January 2020.

Debuted with a succinct, nostalgic lookbook starring Kyle Kuzma of the Los Angeles Lakers, the Sky is packed full of modern-day tech like PUMA’s ProFoam cushioning and high-abrasion grip for exemplary court feel. A “Sky Dreamer” is presented in a retro white and cream colorway with a fused mesh base and supple suede overlays. Plastic heel clips provide stability, and an adjustable belt runs around the ankle. Meanwhile, a “Sky Modern” is offered in a white and navy makeup — and although its moniker is different, its construction is exactly the same. Both pairs also offer a Dreamville “Dreamer” emblem, a nod to PUMA endorser and noted hoops fan J. Cole.
