The PUMA Hoops DISC system made its debut in 1991, marking the German brand’s first entry into the world of laceless sneakers. While DISC lived on for years afterward, PUMA is finally doubling down on the ’90s tech, debuting the new Hoops’ Double Disc next month.
The 1990s was an era of innovation in the world of footwear, as brands pushed themselves and each other to create the next beloved technology for runners, basketball players, and every other sport under the sun. One such technological innovation was PUMA’s DISC system, which used a system of wires and a retractable wheel on either the tongue or heel to tighten them, replacing a standard lacing system entirely. DISC was a hit, giving athletes an easy way to adjust the fit of their sneakers on the fly, regardless of their sport. Now, PUMA is reviving the DISC system in 2021, doubling down on the adjustability with the new Double Disc, which features two separate disk wheels, one at the heel, and one at the tongue, for a more precise, and customizable fit to the shoes. Developed by PUMA recently revived Hoops division, the new Double Disc is purpose-built for the basketball court, though we are likely to see the new innovation adapted to other famous PUMA footwear as the year goes on.
