PUMA honors its roots, stemming from basketball functionality -- it reaches into its archives from the 90s and draws the Palance Guard OG. It gives it a contemporary update and receives the new name, the 'Uproar Palace Guard.' The new sneakers recall retro elements as well, honoring the Detroit Pistons athlete Isiah Thomas.
Visually, it has a dramatic tongue tab, strong ankle support, and a chunky fit to the overall structure originally. The new sneakers are complete with the label's signature Trinomic heel technology, which added extra padding at the collar for more comfort, perforated toe and quarter panel for breathability, and the basketball motif on the tongue in 3D as another nod to the basketball influence.
