88 / 100 based on 3 expert reviews

    The Puma Palace Guard OG is a very good recreation of the 1989 original. From the overall shape to the tech specs — everything is practically the same. I love the toe shape and how they chose not to make the area squared and boxy looking.

    The leather on this is actually pretty nice for a 90-dollar shoe.

Puma basketball dug deep in their archives and brought back to life an iconic basketball sneaker from the “Bad Boys” era. Made famous by a 12-time All-Star, two-time NBA Champion, and Basketball Hall-of-Famer, the Puma Palace Guard gave players an edge on the hardwood with its exceptional fit and support.

Aside from all the OG goodness, the updated Palace Guard also features a padded collar for enhanced comfort, microperforated panels for added cushioning, and Puma’s Trinomic technology for increased impact protection.

Cushion. The OG Puma Palace Guard is equipped with an EVA midsole that provides responsive support and optimal cushioning. At the heel, these retro basketball shoes also feature Puma’s Trinomic technology for increased shock and energy absorption.

Traction. The classic basketball shoes from Puma boast a durable rubber outsole that provides traction on multiple surfaces.

Length and Width. These unisex basketball sneakers from Puma reportedly runs true to size. Women are advised to go 1.5 sizes down from their regular shoe size.

Lockdown. The Puma Palace Guard OG features a lace-up closure that provides a customized fit.

These retro basketball shoes boast a combination of mesh and leather for comfort and durability. The breathable mesh lining also features moisture-wicking properties to keep the feet cool and dry all day long.

The Puma Palace Guard OG boasts a timeless court style that is at home on the streets. These low-top basketball sneakers boast contrasting color accents (on the midsole and outsole) and also feature all the retro detailing found on the original.

The original colorway of the Puma Palace Guard pays tribute to the Motor City’s legendary arena The Palace of Auburn Hills. Buyers can select from a mix of OG and new colorways.
