Consisting of the PUMA Palace Guard OG and the PUMA Uproar Palace Guard, this line puts a modern twist on the original Palace Guard shoe, a red and blue colorway named in honor of a legendary NBA arena: The Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit. In the late 80’s and early 90’s, the Palace Guard OG earned its place in the professional basketball landscape as it gave players, such as Detroit Pistons Hall of Fame Point Guard Isiah Thomas, an edge on the court. After the Pistons moved to The Palace of Auburn Hills in the late 1980s, they also won their first two NBA championships in 1989 and 1990.
Now that PUMA has re-entered Basketball after some 20 years of absence, the 2019 model brings a revamped approach to this original glory. Fitted with Trinomic technology on the heel and a padded collar for enhanced comfort, the microperforated toe and quarter panel provide additional cushioning. Completing the look is a 3D Basketball logo on the tongue and a red and blue color scheme that honors Detroit basketball.
The Uproar Palace Guard is a sneaker as wild and aggressive as the 90’s style that inspired it – but with a modern twist. The shoe boasts custom cushion tech strategically placed for highlight-level energy and maximum grip for sharp cuts and sudden stops. Its dynamic lacing and fit system also have anchor points on the collar and through the forefoot to ensure a full and secure lock down.
The PUMA Palace Guard OG and Uproar Palace Guard sneakers will be available for full release on March 8th with the Palace Guard OG retailing for $90 and the Uproar Palace priced at $130.
