At one point PUMA and Vince Carter looked like they could do some serious damage together in the basketball segment but that marriage didn’t quite work out so well. For PUMA it was the most noise they had made -as far as basketball shoes go – since the PUMA Disc System Weapon. Apparently Vince Carter wanted out of his contract early and PUMA sued and won for breach of contract in late 1999. He was still featured in the spring/summer 2000 PUMA catalog for the basketball segment
but there was no mention of him in the catalog for the one and only basketball shoe featured -which was the PUMA VI Mid and VI low top version. This basketball shoe retailed at $75 for the mid and $70 for the low. Features included: A combination of soft full grain leather and soft synthetic leather with a padded mesh tongue and a soft plush collar lining and iCELL in the heel with CMEVA EverTrack solid rubber. They were also Strobel lasted for better comfort and flexibility. In the end if you are a Vince Carter fan then this shoe is a must for the collection. Check out some flavor’s below.
