This PUMA Palace Guard Finals colorway is dedicated to former Detroit Pistons guard and NBA Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas. Thomas, who wore the design en route to back-to-back NBA Championships in 1989 and 1990, was one of PUMA's leading endorsers during the time. The upper is comprised of Surf the Web blue leather overlays on the toe, mid-panel, and heel, with tonal blue mesh appearing underneath. A contrasting white leather Formstrike covers the mid-panel and extends to the heel. Gold accented PUMA branding is placed on the padded tongue as well as on the heel. Finishing touches to the late '80s model include a red, white, and blue EVA midsole with red PUMA branding on the outsole.
