Puma is expanding its sneaker options to include basketball trainers. On Tuesday, the sportswear brand dropped the Court Rider, a performance shoe you can wear on and off the hardwood.

A new addition to the Rider family, highlights include a full-length Rider foam midsole engineered specifically for basketball, a full-coverage rubber outsole with Puma high abrasion rubber material and a dynamic lacing system around the forefoot for enhanced stability and support.

The Court Rider's inaugural colorway boasts rich accents of orange, yellow, and blue on a white-based mesh upper, an ode to the retro-inspired design.

Puma is also tapping their growing network of rising athletes to help show off the Court Rider's capabilities. This season, Charlotte Hornets rookie LaMelo Ball, New York Knicks star RJ Barrett, Phoenix Suns center Deandre Ayton and reigning WNBA champion Katie Lou Samuelson will all sport the sneaker on game day.
