From the many hidden Basketball gems in PUMA’s archive, the Palace Guard is one of the most exciting. Originally worn by the former Detroit Pistons point guard and 12-time NBA All-Star, the Palace Guard helped him to secure back-to-back championships in 1989 and 1990. In this iteration, PUMA updated the archive shoe, bringing a mix of core and athletic colorways to the street. We used a vacuum execution to apply yellow alert on the vamp and quarter.
