PUMA partners with French fashion house BALMAIN for a new season to create the first-ever playable luxury basketball shoe: the Balmain Court. Made in Italy, this limited-edition Balmain sneaker is a powerful fusion of sport and luxury. Made with leather and performance mesh, the Balmain shoes are fashion and sport at their finest. When tasked with creating a basketball shoe Balmain and PUMA created unique co-branding at the tongue, midsole, and strap. All of this sits atop a ProFoam midsole for cushioning and support on the court. Wearing luxury Balmain sneakers promises to provide a unique level of comfort. Presented in custom PUMA x BALMAIN packaging, the Balmain sneakers are designed for the court and are as ready for the hardwood as they are for the collectors’ shelves.
