After first combining the worlds of hip-hop and hoops this July with the RS-Dreamer, J. Cole and PUMA have now readied its second colorway: "Blood, Sweat and Tears." Inspired by the grit, determination and hard work it takes to make it on the court or the mic, the new makeup offers a bold palette, advanced performance technology and the storytelling that’s become synonymous with Cole and PUMA Hoops's partnership.
Mid-cut uppers are dressed almost entirely in red, with mesh bases and suede overlays alike taking on a vivid crimson hue. Cole’s "Dreamer" logo is stamped on the heel in white, with further contrast provided by a white cord lacing system and small forefoot flourishes. Down below, midsoles combine a duo of foams — both RS-style running shoe foam and basketball-specific ProFoam — for a hybrid cushioning setup.
