The Rudolph Dassler Legacy collection celebrates the enduring quality, imaginative innovation, and timeless style of Puma’s historically iconic models.
Ralph Sampson’s dominant presence during his collegiate career with the University of Virginia Cavaliers made him a lock for the first pick in the 1983 NBA Draft. The Houston Rockets weren’t the only recipients of Sampson’s coveted signature though. By signing on with Puma, Sampson launched the brand’s presence on the basketball court to new levels. Naturally, a signature Ralph Sampson model was to follow in short order. A design that combined generous ankle support with lightweight agility made the Ralph Sampson an unforgettable shoe for Puma.
The Rudolph Dassler Legacy Ralph Sampson features a crisp, white leather design, with metallic gold Puma branding, and asymmetrical pale yellow and deep blue accents outlining the signature form stripe, with the yellow making an additional appearance at the heel, for a subtle touch of color contrast.
