PUMA is expanding its PUMA Hoops line with a new silhouette dubbed the Court Rider. The first sneaker from the Rider family to be crafted specifically for basketball, the Court Rider fuses a heritage lifestyle ethos with modern performance tech for a hybrid design that’s equally as apt in the streets as it is on the court.

The Court Rider’s inaugural colorway features a white and gray base that’s embellished with bright orange, yellow, green and blue accents — in line with other vivid styles like the RS-Dreamer. It features a 5/8 cut for a combination of support and flexibility, and uses PUMA’s proprietary Rider foam in the midsole for comfort. A dynamic lacing system offers an adaptable fit, and high abrasion rubber outsoles promise traction game after game.

You can catch the PUMA Court Rider on both NBA and WNBA courts this season thanks to PUMA Hoops team members like LaMelo Ball, RJ Barrett, Deandre Ayton, Katie Lou Samuelson and more. If you’re looking to secure a pair for yourself, the Court Rider will release on the PUMA webstore and via select retailers like Foot Locker come April 13. The MSRP is set at $100 USD.
