Puma Sky II Hi Weatherproof High Top Style
Unpleasant weather conditions can sometimes ruin one’s travel plans or schedule, especially if one is not equipped with reliable footwear to brave these situations. Puma is offering a solution by introducing the Puma Sky II Hi Weatherproof High Top sneaker boot that is made for the wet or cold seasons.
The entire cover of this sneaker is built with long-lasting canvas and solid leather, while inside, the feet get tucked under comfortable, cushiony environment. This casual weatherproof sneaker smartens up tapered denim, tights, and pulled up pants.
Puma Sky II Hi Weatherproof High Top History
Puma Sky II Hi Weatherproof High Top is made to withstand wet and cold weather without decreasing its function. This contemporary sneaker boot is inspired by vintage high-profile basketball shoes produced by Puma since the mid-1980s. During such period, Puma created trails in the hardcourt by dropping noticeable high-top leather basketball shoes with Velcro straps.
In 1986, this Germany-based sneaker manufacturer unveiled the Puma Sky LX. This performance shoe has an all-leather upper with a padded collar to keep the ankle protected during lateral movements. This sneaker has a single strap that runs across the ankle.
After the Sky LX high-profile sneaker took the center court, Puma introduced a sequel with a higher upper called the Sky II. This subsequent release was designed with an improved and high-wearing outsole that allows the feet to tackle complicated and speedy movements on the court. Its seemingly sky-high collar has a dual Velcro hook and loop straps. This sneaker initially came in predominantly white leather covered with flat blue laces.
The Sky II earned much love from basketball legends and sports enthusiasts that the brand kept on modifying it in the coming years to suit varying trends and seasons. Eventually, Puma reinvented the Sky II by coming up with a low-top skateboarding edition towards the 1990s as hip-hop and b-boys began creating this kind of street culture attracting legions of followers.
Not too long later, Puma began refashioning this Sky model into several other variations for different lifestyle needs. Some of the modified versions are the Puma Sky II Hi Weatherproof High Top, the Puma Sky II Hi Winterised Sneakerboot, and Puma Sky II Hi Core.
