The PUMA Slipstream was originally a high-top basketball shoe that was engineered for serious players. It first came out in 1987 as a successor to the SKY LX. It was known for its innovative material combinations, such as faux snakeskin, leather, and faux fur. As a result, in 2002, the Slipstream was reintroduced in Japan with retro models like the Slipstream Snake and Slipstream Beast, which were popular for their eye-catching designs. During 2022, PUMA celebrated the 35th anniversary of the Slipstream with a remastered version of the original shoe. Additionally, Puma featured the Slipstream in all major collabs of that year such as the ones with Vogue, Coca-Cola, and MCM.

The PUMA Slipstream BBall will be available from June 1, 2023 at PUMA flagship stores, PUMA.com, and selected retailers.
