Puma Reveals the Second Signature Shoe for WNBA Star Breanna Stewart

The Stewie 2 “Ruby” is equipped with the latest Puma technology. The performance hoops shoe features a Pwrtape-supported upper for durability when cutting and jumping. The midsole consists of its Nitro cushioning for responsiveness and comfort while remaining lightweight, and underfoot is a high-abrasion outsole tread pattern for traction. Also, a sculptural wraparound heel with flame detailing and Ruby’s birthday at the side complete this power silhouette.

Alongside the Stewie 2 “Ruby” will be a complementing apparel collection with ruby red hoodies, T-shirts, tights and shorts with flame graphics and Stewart and Puma branding.

Stewart spoke about the new release and why it was so important to honor her daughter and pay homage to mothers around the world.

“As I began creating my second signature shoe with Puma, I knew I wanted to name it after my daughter, Ruby. Not only to symbolize the incredible bond I share with my daughter, but also to pay homage to the unwavering strength and resilience of mothers everywhere,“ Stewart said in a statement. “Being a mother inspires me to be the best version of myself everyday, and I hope wearing the ‘Ruby’ colorway empowers others to recognize the limitless abilities and spirit within themselves.“
