    Just thought some of you might be interested. Sick...

    Another batch of Puma Baskets have released that pay homage to championship teams of the NBA, this time focusing on the 1990s. Previous releases included the 1970s Championship Pack which featured the Seattle Supersonics and Boston Celtics. This round of Baskets include the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Lakers. Each sneaker features a skyline of the city and replaces the "BASKET" logo with the respective city's name. Available now at Mita.

    I would only get this because it's an homage to the championship rockets.

    Wearing them its totally another question.

    sorry, but that skyline doesn't look very accurate at all..hell, that one building in the back looks like an exact replica of dallas' fountain place (i'm assuming they meant that to be the bank of america center)

    I think it looks pretty cool. It reminds me of those Ferrari shoes alot of people wear in Europe.

    Of the 90's and 70's brands, Bulls and Celtics shoes are the best by far, Supersonics and Lakers the worst. Houston's are in the middle. They're semi wearable.

    The best part is they left the Spurs out :D
    Pistons shoes would have been interesting though
