PUMA Dives Into Its Archives For The Resurrected Sky LX Mid Lux Sneaker

Jan 15, 2020

Category: Style

The lineage of today’s most prolific basketball sneakers can be traced all the way back to the middle of the 20th Century, but when it comes to the innovation, and translation, of contemporary athletic footwear, the 1980s were an entirely different beast. It was during this era that PUMA’s Sky LX Mid was released, revolutionizing the game forever. Now, the company has upgraded the silhouette for the modern-day consumer.

PUMA’s resurrected Sky LX Mid Lux arrives as a fashionable counterpart to its predecessor, taking on an entirely different role as a stylish pair of sneakers, first and foremost. An above-the-ankle collar, textured suede, and recognizable strap adorn the shoe’s sleek exterior, revitalizing the timeless variant for use alongside today’s most handsome garments. The Sky LX Mid retains its attractive eggshell/white aesthetic while integrating a handful of modern-day design cues, including a heel shape inspired by PUMA’s Clyde Court sneaker, golden, text-based branding, and a polyurethane midsole to promote exceptional support, comfort, and weight. You can pick up the newly-revived Sky LX Mid Lux on the company’s website for $120.
