The biggest Back to School sneaker releases of September range from everything from Fleece-inspired versions of the Huarache and Roshe Run to the dopest colorway yet of the Air Jordan IX to even a couple of unique takes on our favorite Timberland boots. You could cop all of that and more and we wouldn’t be anything but jealous. With that being said, it’s important that you step up and show some love to one of the brands that’s been killing it for more than years…more like generations.
PUMA has had a great 2015 so far. They’re now linked with fashion icons like Va$htie and Rihanna. They have Usain Bolt, too, a sprinter who is back on top of the world once again. Their athletes, such as Jadeveon Clowney, are all moving in the right direction as well. The brand is killing it right now.
Lucky for you, they have a number of silhouettes currently available at Champs Sports, ranging from old school classics that were popular as far back as the 1950s, to newer models that didn’t come to fame until the ’80s and ’90s.
With school here, we got your back. Lace yourself with something sweet from PUMA. Here are 5 PUMA Shoes That You Need Right Now.

PUMA BLAZE OF GLORY
Buy Now: $134.99
As part of a “NY NY” pack from over the summer, this Knicks colorway of the Blaze of Glory–one of the brand’s most underrated weapons–was something I was craving over the past few months. It also dropped in a Yankees-themed colorway that wasn’t quite as popping as this one but generally much more subdued.
Buy Now: $69.99
The Basket arrived in multiple designs for PUMA’s awesome 4th of July collection, but this particular edition is probably my favorite. With the star-embossed upper sporting a bright red colorway, this is the type of piece you’d wear on a warm day this fall when you want to spice up your fit a bit.
PUMA ROMA BASIC
Buy Now: $64.99
The Roma’s roots are driven deep within the culture, having been first released all the way back in 1968 as a performance shoe. It quickly became something else entirely. Cop now and rock with some joggers on a Saturday afternoon.
PUMA FUTURE TRINOMIC SWIFT
Buy Now: $79.99
I’m a sucker for light blue kicks. Always have been. That stems from my childhood obsession with Michael Jordan, who was always associated with the color through his time at North Carolina in college. This silhouette is executed perfectly with glossy overlays along a synthetic leather upper.
PUMA SUEDE CLASSIC
Buy Now: $58.99
Where did you think we’d end up at? Perhaps the brand’s most classic silhouette, the Suede was made popular by style icons like Clyde Frazier back in the day. Yet even in 2015, it’s a crisp look that says you’re a stylish man who doesn’t try too hard or take himself too seriously.
