The model above taken a backseat to the longer established Clyde and Suede recently, but don’t forget about Puma’s ’80s basketball models just because the ’70s were so dope. The Puma First Round Lo returns in a style made famous by one of the ‘other’ brand’s most famous designs of the ’90s, as the Japanese retailer Styles applies a black patent leather coating to this time-tested silo. Their smooth, sleek appeal is enhanced by perforations in the shape of the traditionally sewn-on Formstripe and gold branding on the heels plus a white sole puts them in line with 2012’s biggest color palette. A run of 300 pairs will be up for pre-sale at Styles on Black Friday, followed by a shipment ten days later on Monday, December 3rd, and you can see more angles below in the meantime.
