Throw on an '80s classic in this special edition Ralph Sampson Mid. 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, we created a customized kick just for him. Today, we're bringing back all the classics, with a bold '80s-inspired colorblocked palette, smooth leather and suede material mix and signature court style.
