NBA legend and 7’4 Hall of Famer Ralph Sampson recently linked up with PUMA to drop a new sneaker called PUMA Ralph Sampson OG. It’s out now at Size? and PUMA’s online stores.
The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer has been retired from the b-ball game for the past 23 years, but his legacy is so profound that he still gets brought up in basketball driven conversations. Naturally, because Ralph Sampson is still a hot commodity of a name that will sell on the shelf, PUMA decided to produce a brand new sneaker in his honor. That sneaker is now officially available at select online stores now as of today.
The sneaker recalls to mind the look of a classic old school sneaker modernized for the 2019 era of sneaker culture. The OG line of sneakers actually dates all the way back to several years ago. When it came time to revive the OG back from the dead, it seemed like a no brainer for the prestigious and athletic PUMA Basketball brand to acquire the services of a legend like Sampson to create the finished product.
Speaking of the finished product, the shoe itself comes with a leather upper, as well as Sampson’s signature on the lateral sides of each shoe in a pair. The Sampson OG comes in three classic PUMA colorways: PUMA White, Gray Violet and Peacoat.
The new Sampson OG from PUMA can be bought exclusively either at PUMA’s official website or the Size? online store. The price ranges between $80 and $90 depending on if you get the show in a Low OG or in a Mid OG.
