Trainer Report: PUMA Bring Back The Classic Court Star
PUMA re-release their tennis classics for the first time...
While it’s hard to see beyond the football this summer, there’s also the small matter of Wimbledon, which is beginning to claim our attention during the day and it’s clearly got PUMA thinking as they’ve re-released their 70s and 80s classic tennis shoes, the PUMA Court Star.
With soles that conformed to the foot in an all white leather with occasional coloured formstripes, the trainers were a rising crowd-pleaser on courts around the world, and was worn by the some of the world’s best players such as Argentina’s Guillermo Vilas and Germany’s Boris Becker who the brand signed as a 17 year-old who would go on to dominate the game.
The Court Star is being reissued for the first time, the slightly chunkier version of the PUMA Match hails from the 80s and is a classic in its own right, with its soft leather upper is highlighted by classic gold foil branding and a coloured midsole for an aged, vintage look whilst retaining the perforated Formstripe that has adorned PUMA tennis shoes since the 50’s.
The PUMA Court Star is released 4 July
