In the days of John McEnroe, Bjorn Borg and Jimmy Connors, there was a name making waves in its footwear. Puma was in high demand, offering exactly what players wanted in a shoe for grand slam level play. Since then one of its most coveted issues, the “Court Star”, has slipped out of the field of play, until now.
Re-issued for the very first time on July 4th, we’re going to see a whole new breed of Court Star, not to play in, but to live in. This slightly chunkier, sturdier version has been re-designed for street use while at the same time keeping most of the traditions from its great grandfather. The aged mid-sole are sandwiched between soft quality leather which features a perforated formstripe, while the sole allows for the wears and tears of the street as opposed to the court. Finished with a subtle yet distinctive gold tipped lace, which just adds the all important “Touch Of Class” so easily.
At PAUSE, It’s a mix of detail and simplicity which gets us particularly excited about this sneaker. There’s a sense of born righteousness with it, that by simply putting on the shoe will you add that final detail- a touch of class.
Look out for these shoes dropping in Size? on July 4th.
