Puma: Basket 70s Champs Seattle Sonics

Puma is releasing the Basket 70s Champs Seattle Edition. The homie over at Wooohah who's a Seattle native tipped me off on this kick. This is gonna look real nice with that Lenny Wilkens throwback. More over at High Snobiety who found out about it from the fine folks at Sneaker Freaker. Complex has a blurb about it as well.

From the Puma archive in 1971 comes the Basket ‘70s series, which pays homage to city’s that won the NBA championships during the 1970’s. This shoe is based around the inspiring win from the Super Sonics, who ripped up the court to win their first winning season (47-35). Utilising the team colours of green, yellow and white and featuring the Seattle skyline as used on the Super Sonics logo, this Basket will be joined by a host of other champions, which Puma is yet to drop. Stay tuned. - Sneaker Freaker
