PUMA’s return to the basketball court in the past year has been a massive success, helping push the brand to their best sales quarter in years. Now, the Hoops sector is continuing their old school releases with the Ralph Sampson for All-Star Weekend.

PUMA’s Ralph Sampson has been an instrumental piece of the revival of their Hoops division, as the first vintage signature model to return in a lifestyle iteration. Now, the Ralph Sampson is everywhere, from the feet of casual fans looking for something clean to wear on their day off to some of the best basketball players in the country. So, it goes without saying that PUMA is bringing the beloved Ralph Sampson Mid to Chicago this year for All-Star Weekend. Built to honor the great midwestern city, the “Chicago” Ralph Sampson features a largely red upper constructed from leather and suede, with a black PUMA Formstrip and heel section to round it out. The PUMA and Ralph brandings both come in gold foil, while a starry sockliner and handful of red stars wrapping around the heel complete the look.


PUMA’s Chicago-themed release of the classic Ralph Sampson Mid for All-Star Weekend is scheduled to release next week, on February 15th, 2020. The bright red color scheme will go for the Sampson’s usual $90 price tag, and launch from both PUMA and select retailers.
